Product Specifications

Saving treasured moments should never cost a fortune. With the Sony CCD-TRV228E Hi8 Handycam camcorder, you get most of the high-end features you would expect from a top-of-the-line camcorder, such as a 2.5" LCD display, a huge 20X optical zoom and NightShot. It even includes the new Easy Handycam feature, which automates most of the camcorder's processes and makes videotaping a snap.
