go SONY, best the market has to offer!


My 8mm just bit the dust about a month ago, so I've been looking around for a good camcorder that plays my old 8mm's but has the quality and the options of digital. It didnt take me long to realize SONY was the best and only way to go. JVC and others...

Picture Perfect


This sony digital camcorder makes filming fun and easy. The light-weight model allows subjects and the filmer to see what is being recorded. It is easy to hold and filming is easy even for those without a steady hand.

Light weight, easy to use

Good but not perfect


I bought this camcorder (actually the TRV103, still haven't found what differs from the TRV110) last summer, after the birth of my daughter. I had in mind the typical family use of a camcorder: family events, travel, watching the kids grow up, etc... I...
