Steadyshot, Nightshot, Predictable Video Quality, Thoughtful UI, Great Quality/Features/Price.

Digital-8 stores 1/2 of tape, Tiny battery included, bulky. Not many cons.

Economic, feature-rich, but flawed - compared with old entry level Sony camcorder


Broken in 2 years - See latest upgrade at bottom] I'm upgrading from my (really) old CCD-TR818, Sony's entry level Hi8 camcorder. So Hi8 playback is important. (Was looking at TRV260, which doesn't read Hi8 - and the price difference is <$50; $14 ...

Cheap (<$350, Hi8 media), 20x optical zoom, SteadyShot, multiple auto-exposure modes, off-centre focus

Terrible software, motor noise, poor quality bottom loading, bad user interface, poor low-light quality

Good zoom, video quality, features, price, connectivity, plays 8mm/Hi8.

Low light causes noise, digital still pictures have low resolution, useless digital zoom
