Correction on May 16th Review

Amazon
12 July 2002
  • Summary: The software mentioned on my May 16th review IS called "AVID Xpress" -- not "AVID Express" -- when my review was edited someone changed the spelling, possibly thinking it was a typo/mistake?

GREAT CAMERA! A DELIGHT! FUN ! A PLEASURE!

Susan, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the TRV 900 in September of 1999 and have been very pleased these past few years. This camera is lightweight enough to travel with...with me, it's been from Italy to Arizona...and produces clean, colorful pictures.

Sony Handycam [messed] up my computer

Amazon
28 April 2002
  • Summary: The USB software bundled by Sony for transferring images to computer COMPLETELY [MESSED] UP MY SYSTEM. The installation is very dicey. You need to do things in a precise order. It is prone to getting [messed] up,... it can't be fixed. As usual, the Sony software is a mess.

Great - without a single doubt

Joseph M. Vles, Amazon
16 January 2002
  • Summary: I find myself using the DCR-TRV900 as a digital camera almost as a matter of course. I purchased the Sony 64Mb memory card (you need to also buy the PCMCIA attachment that it fits in) and taking pictures is a veritable joy.

Be causious of reviews

Amazon
13 December 2001
  • Summary: I find it helpful to read the reviews of consumers that have already bought the product. But click on the review from Wayne C4 listed here where it says "Wayne C4 (see more about me)" and he has reviewed 40 + items with many of them using the same words in the review or with only a few words...

Understated...

Carleton M. Torpin, Amazon
26 November 2001
  • Summary: I have owned the trv900 for over a month now. I bought it instead of the VX 1000/2000 because of the smaller size and price. (about half the size of the vx2000 and 2/3 the price.) It has a 52mm lens front, color viewfinder, 3.5" LCD screen, and of course 3 CCDs.

Battery-charging problems

Amazon
12 September 2001
  • Summary: I cannot believe I paid so much for a camcorder that has such a JUNKIE battery charger built in. If it gets bumped even slightly, or has too much pressure on the cord just laying there, it comes out. You pick up a camera thinking it is charged, and find out it is NOT!!

A great camcorder

the piano, Amazon
6 September 2001
  • Summary: Experience shows that when Sony introduces a first new product in its class, they make a killer product to strenghten their image. This camcorder is one of them (the others are their first SACD, first DVD player, first walkman, first digital walkman, first trinitron TV, etc...

Only for Pro-Consumers

J. I. Doumet, Amazon
8 May 2001
  • Summary: When I received my new camera I was using a borrowed PC100. I did not return the later right away 'cause I wanted to do a little test to prove if the 3CCD system was truly that different. My wife asked me what I was doing, to which I answered: "Let's see if I just overspent our money...
