Product Specifications

CCD-TRV 208 Hi8 camcorder represents one of Sony's most sophisticated domestic analog camcorders, and is designed to provide users with a highly cost-effective analog shooting and editing solution. This model offers a range of features and options as well as a straightforward means of copying and editing video using a wide range of VCRs. With CCD-TRV 208, you can easily construct a valuable family archive as your children grow up. The CCD-TRV208 features a 2, 5" LCD monitor, 20x optical/560x digital zoom, nightshot optical processing circuitry and sophisticated remote control facilities. The camcorder also provides a proprietary Easy Dubbing feature, which has been developed by Sony to provide easy and accurate editing facilities on any brand of VCR without an LANC cable. With this neat feature, users can copy video footage scene by scene using the camcorder to control the system. The two pieces of equipment communicate by pre-subscribed infrared codes to synchronize recording.
