Summary: This is a great camcorder for an older model. It is intuitively easy to use and has a really good quality sound recorder that can handle a wide range of sound levels. I've been very pleased with its' performance.
Summary: I bought the Sony Handycam TRV525 to convert older analog 8mm video to digital. I also bought it to record my grandson's college soccer games. I have been perfectly satisfied with this product. It has performed every function I have expected of it, with great results.
Summary: This camera has everything I needed to load my Digital 8 movies into my new Macintosh computer. The battery life is not great. I believe there are bigger batterys available. I still need to purchase a new memory stick for it for photos.
Summary: The Camera meets or exceeds everything I wish to use it for. It is a little bulky but the system itself works just fine. I installed a 1GB Memory card(Must use Sony card because I had heard rumors about formatting problems) and it is very easy to operate and gives great photo's. The night shot is better then I expected. Even though the Camera has been replaced the price you can by these for used is well worth it.
