Sony DCR-TRV140 Camcorder Review - Sony Digital8 Camcorders

 

The Sony DCR-TRV140 is the low end model of the Sony Digital8 lineup with a street price around $500. Although it is an inexpensive alternative to digital camcorders, the Sony has fallen behind other manufacturers in included features on bottom level...

It gets me by

 

After reading the other reviews posted, I wanted to chime in as well with my opinion. I bought this camera over a year ago, and the main reason for buying it was to get my daughter on tape as she grew older. I did not want to spend a ton, and after ...

Handy Dandy

 

I have taken home movies for over 30 years. This is an easy camera to use. I am not that pleased with the playback viewing. If I keep the viewing small, the pictures look great, but when on a larger screen the pictures just are not that great.

Easy to use

Pixels not enough for sharp photo

Sony Digitial Video is Cool!

 

I'm pretty happy with this. I like that it shoots digital and still pictures and is easy to capture into my computer. It hooks right into the USB, which some others didn't. However, it's really hard to edit. I guess I should buy an editing program....

My First DV Camera

 

While this is my first digital video camera, I have used a number of other brand cameras in the past. I bought this camera because your kids grow up too fast and I have other Sony products in my home.

Easy access to all buttons and functions

Unable to playback on analogue tapes

Consumer review (epinions.com)

Fun and easy to use but is it worth it?

 

I bought the 140 to record indoors in theatre situations. In that case I use a tripod and the remote. Outdoors I use a tripod when it is feasible. I find the created image quality as bad as old VHS. No improvement for the price. Don't know if it...

Good features for the price

Image quality created is terrible
