Sony handycam-still going-old but gold

 

In August of 2004 and Sony was our unanimous choice. We have taken nearly 100 videos and 350 photos in interiors as well as outside in the sun, night, on the beach, fast moving objects. The features i like are the DV input, LCD touch-screen monitor,...

LCD, touch-screen, auto focus, night light

USB cable output to PC not good

Great camera, buy extra batteries

 

Great camera overall. The still digital picture capability is not very good quality, so we never use it. The videos are great quality in all conditions. It has even held up at the beach three times. The battery runs out quickly so I would recommend...

Easy to use picture touch screen & ; great picture quality

Batteries run-out quickly and still picture capability is poor quality

Sony TRV-460 Delivers More for Less

 

Now that I am on my 5th digital camcorder, and 4th digital camera, I have some standards to weigh against. Admittedly this is a biased review because 3 of my last 5 camcorders were Sonys, including this one. What's in the box: The usual suspects... ...

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

Sony Handycam® DCR-TRV460 Digital-8 Camcorder

 

If you want a digital camcorder that can play your old 8mm or Hi8 tapes as well as record in digital format and cost less than many MiniDV camcorders, the Sony ...

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

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

Consumer review by: valleyman (epinions.com)

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

 

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

terrible software, high motor noise, bottom tape loading, bad user interface, poor low-light quality
