We are Very Pleased...

 

We purchased this camcorder 2 1/2 years ago, and so far are very pleased. I would like to have bought a Hi-8 HiFi, but just couldn't justify the extra money. The 30X Zoom (mine is a TRV32 not 36) is very detailed and not pixely like many others I've...

Picture quality, steady shot, easy to use

Sound quality could be better

Every Shoot a Happy One

 

I bought the TRV36 as an Hi8 replacement for the 2 Sony 8mm camcorders I own. My experience in using this camcorder has been entirely positive, indeed its performance has exceeded my high expectations.

Light weight, easy to use,quality performance

Can't copy tapes from other video decks

Perfect family camcorder!

 

We have owned this camcorder for less than a month but already I am not sure what we did before we had it. With 3 small children who are always on the go there are some moments that you just don't want to miss! This easy to use camcorder can keep up...

Big Brother's Watching

 

This camcorder is very similar to the one I bought and used until I dropped it. Now it's in the closet. But before I dropped it, I got all kinds of great stuff. For example, I stayed at a hotel in a famous city. My window overlooked the river, and on...

Makes those family movies and even fun in the dark

 

The Sony CCD-TRV 36 is a very handy little camcorder with features such as a 330x zoom, color view screen, auto light switch, and one of the most fun features the night shot. With the night shot you can see and film in total darkness, witch may be one...

Great value

Battery only charges on the camcorder

This camera can really shoot!

 

I love the Sony Handycam! This is the perfect camcorder for busy moms that love to capture the moment. The best thing about this camera is you can go back and edit the bad shots out.

Clear picture quality, no shakiness, longer lasting battery

User Friendly Camcorder

 

Sony has some of the best electronics out on the market and they certainly do not disappoint with this camcorder. My wife and I were in the market for a camcorder last year before the birth of our son. Both sets of his grandparents live far away so we...

Good price range, easy-to-use features

Great camcorder

 

I wanted to buy a camcorder to capture special moments of my new baby. I run a dance program for kids 3-1/2 years through 12th grade and I put together a video scrapbook at the end of every year, so I also wanted a durable camera with clear images to...

Clear picture and sound - very light

Battery doesn't last long - loss of generation when editing
