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.
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: 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'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: 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.
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.
