Summary: I have owned this camera for over two years and have produced about 10 video productions with it, ranging from 3 minutes to 30. Overall, the camera works great. I got it on an open-box special at Circuit City, and I think it must have been dropped or something, because there are definitely loose...
Summary: Excellent camcorder with the latest features. Exceptional picture capturing capabilties with its world class lens. Very good handling features, auto stabilizer and controls are at the right location, very ergonomically designed.
Summary: This is a great prosumer (entry level pro) camera. Although it has only 1 CCD chip, it produces pictures close in resolution to that of the 3 CCD camcorders. The size and weight make it perfect to carry around and on vacation.
Summary: As much as I love Sony's megapixel sensor implementation in this camcorder, I no longer think it's the best one out there. If this cam is on your shopping list then definitely check out its closely related sibling: PC110.
Summary: I bought this because of the form factor and the lens (Ziess). Movies look great and pictures look great if you are OK with resolution. I picked it up so that when we travel, I could take snap-shots for my web site and make movies to bore my family.
Excerpt: Well, I am not a big photography fan or lens expert but I as you would expect from any cyber junkee... I did my homework before buying my first camcorder. Looking back at the last three months, I can happily say that I made oneof the best decisions of my life.
Pros: Size, Price, Image Quality, Easy to use
Cons: No memory card, Accompanying SW is not user friendly
Excerpt: This opinion is registered as an early impression - I have not yet used (or indeed mastered) the many facilities provided on this camera. However, what I have seen and used so far is impressive.
Pros: Compact, extensive feature list, including DV - in, high resolution video and stills, high - res viewfinder & LCD screen, fast / smooth response on mechanical componentse on mec
Cons: Power switch is slightly awkward for one - handed use; underside tape loading inconvenient for tripod users
Excerpt: If you are considering the trendy MegaPixel PC-100 DV camcorder from Sony with it's 'upright' design then also consider the TRV-20E. They are in fact the 'same camera' - the TRV20E has extra digital editing features and the only real difference is the TRV20E's more traditional camcorder design.
Pros: Can record Analog & Digitial in also plays NTSC DV
Summary: "Une sensibilité de 0 lux ! Filmez dans l'obscurité !" Pour tous ceux qui ont connu les images noirâtres et inexploitables, une promesse pareille ressembait plus à un miracle qu'à un argument de vente ! Mais ATTENTION !
