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. I can also grab "still" pictures from my videos and have a perfectly captured photo (i.e. the perfect smile on someone's face or a moment in which a bird dives into a shot etc.
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. The camera is just over 3 years old (as of Aug. 2001) , but don't let that stop you from choosing it over the vx2000 because the image quality is right on par with it.
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..." I used the same tape to film our newborn baby with both the PC100 and the TVR-900 at the same position. What were the results?
Summary: I have been using it for six months now and am very pleased. The larger batteries can interfer with the view finder however, this is not an issue when using the flip out LCD display. Great image quality. The still image function works great with a PC Card.
Summary: This is the only DV camera I've used, but I'm very happy with it so far. I don't own one, but my school does and so far it's been incredible. Great resolution, very light, pretty stable picture for a light consumer camcorder and oh my god, the difference between Hi-8 and DV is like night and day. Also, the digital effects can be used without looking cheesy. I recommend it whole-heartedly.
Excerpt: "This camera fits well in the palm of your hand and at first feels very light weight, but if using for prolonged periods does begin to feel heavy. It has a huge range of capabilities as you would expect with a camera of this price. Colour Viewfinder, 3.5" LCD screen for easy viewing, 40 x digital Zoom, floppy disc drive port, LP mode, Photo mode for 500 photos. The main disadvantage with this and many other camcorders is that my left handed ...
Excerpt: "Sony have always made some solid, dependable & flashy camcorders over the years. You're almost guaranteed a great product that covers what your budget and your needs require. However, it's a bit of a nightmare trying to find the right camcorder or your specific needs, especially the new flashier digital ones that command a rather hefty price tag. After some decision & testing I opted for this well equipped TRV900E. It got all the usual features ...
Pros: good range of features, picture/sound quality excellent, simple instruction manual
Summary: Der Camcorder ist ein zuverlässiger Partner, wurde von mir über viele Jahre ohne jegliche Reparaturen oder anderer Schwierigkeiten genutzt! Diesem Camcorder fehlt nur eins um unerreichbar zu werden: ein verbessertes Tonaufnahmesystem und die Speicherung auf Festplatte!
