  • Summary: this miniCV camera is worth its weight in gold, perhaps the best single CCD one you can get at the moment? If you want to be serious about making a DVD, then you need widescreen, and this camera has it natively - ie. doesn't crop the picture, but has widescreen CCD sensor and outputs anamorphic video. nightshot and super-nightshot modes work well, but you can also use slow-shutter modes at night and retain colour.

First Time Camcorder

  • Summary: After a fortnight of searching the Web for reviews and which camera to buy i focused on Two both sony's, the TRV-355 and the TRV-80. Both looked good but I decided to spend the extra money and go for the TRV-80. WOW what a camera first thing i noticed was the location of all the buttons everything is nicely placed even for my fat fingers. Zoom is smooth although at x120 digital zoom the quality seems to fade a bit.
