Summary: I received everything in the condition in which it was promised. The delivery time was also well within the stated delivery time. I have previously owned this product and wanted to replace the damaged device. I was able to locate the exact device I previously owned and at a very reasonable price.
Summary: I wanted a camera with Firewire (to feed directly to computer) and the new HD models don't go there. This is a great camera. It works smoothly. I do wish the tape didn't load from the bottom, which makes me detach it from the tripod each time.
Summary: This is a nice camera for the price, does it all! The bottom loading of the tape is not too big of a deal. It would be the only thing that I would change. The picture quality from a long distance is great.
Summary: I bought this because it had the highest "overall" score I could find for point and shoot camcorders from a quite thorough camcorder review website. It's the only camcorder I've used. I've shot about an hour of video, had the tape copied to a DVD, and watched it. I'm very happy with it.
Summary: This is my 3rd TRV70. I bought my first because of the features: nice big lens, great in low light, works great with my Sony Movie Studio and my Sony Direct DVD burner, and my Sony Vaio desktop.
Summary: I searched and searched for the best quality camcorder for the best price. If you find a good deal on it, this is it. Great quality, easy to use, great manual controls, as well as an easy to use touch screen (I was unsure about the touch screen for a while until I bought it, and it's really not too...
Summary: I've used this camera for about three years now and have had no problems whatsoever. The picture quality is good; the construction feels solid yet it's still light-weight. I've filmed several sports highlight videos with it and the results have been solid.
Summary: I bought this item about a year ago, as it is the last of the good Mini DV's, along with the DCR-TRV80 Sony put out. These cameras are better built than the new HC series in the same class, and still have the Carl Zeiss "Sonar" lens in them as opposed to the cheaper "Tessar" lens, in the mid range...
Summary: I was very surprized to see the size of the thing, much smaller than I thought it was. So far the little I have used it it works fine but not as good as I thought it was going to be. Not much better than my less expensive JVC camcorder Its a little harder to use also.
Summary: Some of the best features are to be found on the older Sony's, in this case the TRV70. While it has "Super Nightshot" (nothing more than slowing down the shutter, hence the herky jerky image) the TRV70 still retains the old night shot capability.
