Sony DCR-TRV240 Camcorder Review - Sony Digital8 Camcorders

 

The Sony DCR-TRV240 is same as the 140 except with the added ability to play back Hi8 and 8mm tapes,with a street price around $600. The 240 is a good choice if you have an old Hi8 or 8mm camcorder and you don't need digital stills, but it isn't good...

Sony has always had a habit of luring people to their amazing products. Recently I bought DCR-TRV240 and believe me it is really cool.

Great pictures, plenty of features, easy to use

Bottom loading, not the greatest when it comes to still pictures
