Great video, durable, but the sound suffers

M. Metzger, Amazon

  • 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...

Best 1 CCD Camera

scott_from_dallas, Amazon
6 January 2002
  • 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.

No longer the best one out there...

Red Baron "cracovian", Amazon
15 March 2001
  • 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.

Love the lens, not sure about the ergonomics

Amazon
5 October 2000
  • 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

Excellent - but look for the best deal

  • 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

Better than TRV PC-100

Wardenc, Ciao
29 August 2000
  • 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
  • Cons: None

  • 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 !
  • Pros: caméra complète et fiable
  • Cons: sensibilité CATASTROPHIQUE  !
