Summary: The camera was and still is a high end camera. The actions are crisp, zoo is smooth, viewfinder screen is clear. One of the outstanding features is the ability to take 0 lux pictures. Experts tell me that the night capabilities exceed Sony's current technology.
Summary: Here are the reasons why I bought this video camera. Its a Sony,its built well, I am familiar with this type of camera and its easy to work with.I like the fact that it has a microphone jack,This is great if another mic is needed.
Summary: BOUGHT THIS NEW IN 2000 FOR $1600. I GOT IT WET IN 2006 IN THE OCEAN. NOW I FINALLY FOUND IT ON EBAY FOR $180. ITS THE BEST MINI DV CAMERA OUT THERE. GREAT LENSES FOR CLEAR CRISP PICTUR QUALITY. VIBRATION REDUCTION IS AWESOME AND THE BIG COLOR SCREEN. O LUX FEATURE IS FANTASTIC.
Summary: I chose this video camera because I already own one that I enjoy. It is starting to show signs of wear because I use it so much. I looked at newer models in retail stores, but none of the newer models that I could afford had all of the same features.
Summary: I have looked here at Amazon.com often to purchase a new camera, and this is the camera. Have only had it a few days, but what great shots and video. When I read about it with Amazon's "Product Specs" it said some things that made me almost not buy it. The specs about titles is not correct.
Summary: This is my second TRV20. The first was lost or stolen. I needed to transfer tapes to DVD's so I bought another. This little DCR Handycam is beautiful and comes with easy directions, though it may take some time to utilize all of them.
Summary: I can't figure out why no one has not reviewed this great little camcorder/digital still camera up until now. This was Sony's first mega pixel consumer camcorder on the market. In 2000 they made three models with this chassis, the TRV6, TRV11 and this TRV20 which was Sony's high end single chip...
Summary: Pros: Better than dvd quality video; still pictures are good. Video effects and usability of comera functions are good. Nightshot works well. Good construction, beautiful lcd, very compact. I did over six months research before purchasing this camera; nothing come close.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 January 2002
Summary: The Sony DCR-TRV20 uses MiniDV format as opposed to the line of Sony's Digital 8 camcorders. MiniDV allows you to hold more video and on a more compact tapes. The camcorder weighs just 1lb 7oz and looks very nice.
Summary: I bought the DCR-TRV20 in January, and I have been very pleased with it. The image quality, features, battery life, size/weight, and zoom Zeiss optics are excellent. All around, a good choice ...and I'd buy one again.
