Good Family Camcorder


This is a very good entry level camera for general use. Although it is a bit bulky by today's standards, it is well built and easy to use. The videos are very good quality even in low light. The image stabilization works well and the nightshot is...

Strong Zoom and Good Image Quality

A bit Bulky

Director's Cut


Where do I start? This is a great camcorder for just about all applications. I'll start with picture quality. Hi8 is an analog format but my uncle watched some of my videos and he can't tell the difference between my Hi8 and his supposedly better...

Beautiful Hi8 picture quality, loads of neat features

Mono, no A/V input, onboard mike leaves something to be desired, manual focusing is tough.

My Favorite New Toy


I love this camera. I am not a very technical person, and typically anything with more than a couple of buttons can leave me perplexed ;). I love this camera because I find it is easy to use, is lightweight, and has tons of great features like night...

Lightweight, A lot of neat features, Fairly easy to use

Be sure to check the box and see that all parts are there

Make a movie...


I was more in love with the night vision feature on this camera. I quickly learned that my love of this "feature" was lost when I realized it was nothing more than the addition of greenish lighting. It emits a small amount of ultraviolet light to...

Relatively inexpensive, Sony reputation, versatile

Nightvision is a joke, standard battery is a bit weak, unstable focus

But what I really want to do is direct!


Being an "industry town", LA has many peccadilloes that provide those of us who honestly have no desire to be part of the bright-lights endless enjoyment. A big part of that is how it seems that everyone is auditioning or working to get their options...

Incredibly simple without sacrificing flexibility

Very good quality camcorder compared to most. Highly recommended and guaranteed the best buy. You won't find a better camera for modern cam users. Good X160 zooming, and clear picture. Also Great faders for professional looking videos. Faders include:...

New Memories...


I'm now constantly filming. I love this camera! It's extremely easy to use. I had to buy a new long lasting battery which I always use and I use the one that came with it for back-up (never). It has good placement of functions such as record and the...

Easy to hold, features, LCD screen for easy viewing.

Not digital. Comes with cr*ppy battery.

Sony CCD-TRV67 Hi8 Camcorder - Almost Digital Quality For Analog Price


Low price for almost digital quality, features, 2.5" LCD, InfoLithium, stabilizer

It's analog, so there is some noise introduced by media

Ready to buy?


The CCD-TRV67 is a good start-up camcorder for someone who have never owned one before. It provides color viewfinder and has a flip out screen to view. It is also a Hi8 version, better quality than just regular 8mm tapes.

Reasonably priced. Hi8 version. Color viewfinder.

Small screen. Not much option.
