Summary: I'm very impressed with the camcoder. It's like a new one I had before that I couldent get repaired. I had several lens. memory sticks & recorded tapes I can now use with this one. Thanks again, Elbert
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.
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.
Summary: Pros: Picture quality, Hi8 Playback Capability, Price Cons: Zoom Control, Image Stabilization, Bottom cassette loading, Handling Comfort, 15x Zoom While holding out for the cost to come down on DVD camcorders and needing a new camcorder that would play my existing Hi-8s, I went with the backwardly...
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.
Summary: i have had this product for 4 months and love the unit. Pro's: 1. portable, small for the price 2. Mega pixel is nice option but you may need a separate camera if you are a stickler, but more than adequate for general pics 3. reversable swivel screen for viewing from any angle 4.
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: 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.
