Sony CCD TRV 16

 

With a large capacity battery it rates high. It is easy to use and the sound quality is very good. I would like to see a "rewind" feature with the ability to view as it rewinds. I cannot find leads to download onto my computer, is there one?

Many features, great picture quality

Product Specifications

Although it only weighs a little over 450 g, this state-of-the-art camcorder is loaded down with features. You can make professional-looking videos with outstanding digital picture quality, no matter what your lighting is. Video 8 XR Extended Resolution extends the luminance bandwidth for greater image detail and clarity. 8 XR provides up to 280 lines of resolution in low contrast situations. With Sony's NightShot system you can capture video even when shooting in total darkness (0 lux) up to 3 meters away using the built-in infrared system. When activated, Optimum Record Control will perform a short record and playback of the inserted video tape to analyze the tape and to check the condition of the video heads. If your footing's a little shaky, SteadyShot Image Stabilization compensates for any camera shaking. Auto Exposure adjusts lighting to your environment with six programmed settings including Beach & Ski and Sunset & Moon. For the experienced videographer, a manual focus ring and exposure dial gives you more creative control. And the audio is as sharp as the picture with Stereo Audio. When your masterpiece is finished, you can use the audio dubbing feature to set your videos to your favorite songs.
