Summary: Great camera,just as advertised.had the same one before and loved it.this was a great find to be able to replace it with a brand new one.If you can find this model or the sony dcr-trv820 with its built in printer and larger 4"screen go for it.the picture quaility is close to hi deff and is a very duable camera as these two models were sonys flagship cameras at that time.
Summary: I've owned camcorders before but never digital. Before I made my choice, I did a lot of research on the net. The Sony products always seemed to show up on the recommended lists. I have a friend who owns the DCR-TRV320 and decided to check it out. I was very impressed with the camera. The features of the 320 and the 520 are basically the same. I like the bigger LCD screen on the 520 though and went for that instead. I Nightshot feature is GREAT on these cameras.
Summary: DCR-TRV520. I bought this Digitial 8 camera (I am not a previous user/owner of any camcorder) about 4 weeks ago after much prognosticating over the miniDVD format in the Panasonic and Canon brands for a similar price (I would have gone for the Sony miniDVD but didn't want to pay the extra bucks).
Summary: When we bought this camcorder I was a little worried, since I never handled a camcorder before. I had no problems! It was so lightweight and easy to use. I love the display that tells you how much time is left on the battery. I would recommend this camcorder to everyone!
Summary: You know, when I ordered this product from Amazon, I just couldn't wait to receive it. This camcorder was everything I ever wanted in a camcorder. The day I received it, I went to go use it right away not expecting what will happen. I'm so happy that I got this camcorder beside any other one. It was GREAT! And especially with amazon's low price, it reall made me more excited and proud to own such an awesome camcorder.
