Love this camera. Great picture quality with 3CC-Beware of audio problems
15 January 2012
Summary: This is the third camera of this model I have bought, so I have loved the quality. The only problem I have had is that the audio has cut out on the first two cameras I bought. That was the reason I bought this one. It was refurbished buy a technician, so I knew I would not have the audio problem with this one. I still think it has the best picture quality of any camera I have seen or used. If it didn't have that audio problem...
Summary: A very extensible, reliable unit. Many features that keep it useful today. A great way to expand one's video equipment base to learn less expensively. Not as low-light-friendly as other cams, but making up in video quality.
Summary: I boght this camcorder to replace a broken camcorder. This is my 3rd camcorder(Hitachi and Canon), to date this one is the best. Though not the smallest or lightest it has a great feel and handles with ease. Picture and sound quality is great. For a lightly used camcorder, it was worth the money.
Upgrade your church video with 12 year old camcorder
23 December 2010
Summary: Even better than 90% of modern consumer camcorders, is Sony's 12 year old DCR-TRV900. It was the first Sony produced consumer/prosumer 3 CCD camcorder. With 3 quarter inch CCDs it separates the three colors to their own processor for capture giving a much higher signal to noise ratio as well as deeper richer colors. What I especially appreciate is the low light imaging by the Sony cameras in general and the Sony 3 chip cameras in particular.
Summary: Camera has tons of options. I love the size and quality of this camera. This camera is just like the vx1000 without the handle. I have had both cameras and I prefer this one over the vx1. Great for filming skateboarding.
Summary: very great colors, and great camcorder! priceless. it has great settings and manual settings. fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff
Summary: Trustworthy and performs well in any number of conditions & environments. I'm a videographer running a 1 man 2 camera setup, this is the one I fix on the tripod because the auto function helps when I run it on 'autopilot' as I walk around with the main cam on steadi-unit. Also, this works easy with an external mount mic. Great pic quality, 3CCD is a must, usual Sony intuitive controls. I love this!
Summary: Great skate filming camera. Nice image, easy to operate, big flip out LCD viewfinder. Not really a camera you'd want to shoot a film with, but it'll definitely get a wedding covered if you have a crap videography job.
Summary: This Sony camcorder, discontinued years ago, includes all of the features even a serious videographer would probably want. It competes with many of the much more expensive models but can be found for $500-$600 on eBay. If you can find one, grab it. They go fast. Combine this with a Bogen Manfretto tripod (such as the 3011, which can, with the head, adjust up to 71"!) and a decent head for video, such as the Manfretto 3130, and you're in business.
