manual can be confusing at best

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: TRV740 claims to have meagpixel. However, it sure is not showing it in digit still. I was looking for a unit which can double up as digit still camera. All I can say is TRV740 disappointed me in that department. Also weak is in the manual.

CAMCAM

  • Summary: This is an excellent camera, however, anyone spending more than $200 dollars for one is wasting their money for some very old technology. Buy one, if you can, but do not spend too much money.

Great quality, heavy handling

David K., Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: This is a great camera, but I wish I had done a little more research before going ahead and purchasing this. The quality is absolutely great. It has the ability to transfer data with the iLink, and the backwards compatibility is also a plus. However, the "digital camera" aspect is pretty poor.

Good VFM

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: This camera is excellent for capturing Videos, the Still Picture quality is good if you are outdoors, for shooting still pics indoors & especially during night-time, you must have a very bright Light Source or a very brightly illuminated room.

Purchasing SD Card

S. Stewbino, Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: I purchased a 2G SD card to store more pics that the one that came with it. I put in the card and kept getting a "card reader error". The store indicated that the cam cannot handle the additional memory for storing pics.

Wonderful Camera

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: We bought this camera before Christmas to replace an 8 year old VHS-C. We were very pleased with the features. It is not a High-End camera, but definetly for the price we paid, we could not have gotten anything close.

Excellent quality!

Amazon
23 March 2009
  • Summary: The Sony TRV-740 is an upgrade to our old analog Sharp 8mm camcorder. The difference in picture quality is amazing between analog and digial 8. There is no noticeable buzzing noise on the recordings as other reviewers have claimed.

  • Summary: I read the reviews about this camera and was a little hesitant because some of them mentioned it was noisy. I bought it anyway and was pleasantly surprised that it was not that noisy.
