Sony DCR-TRV240 Camcorder Review - Sony Digital8 Camcorders

 

The Sony DCR-TRV240 is same as the 140 except with the added ability to play back Hi8 and 8mm tapes,with a street price around $600. The 240 is a good choice if you have an old Hi8 or 8mm camcorder and you don't need digital stills, but it isn't good...

The features of Sony DCR-TRV240

 

Sony has always had a habit of luring people to their amazing products. Recently I bought DCR-TRV240 and believe me it is really cool.

Great pictures, plenty of features, easy to use

Bottom loading, not the greatest when it comes to still pictures

DCR-TRV240 vs. DCR-TRV140

 

I own two of the Sony Digital 8 camcorders, the DCR-TRV240 and the DCR-TRV140. Since the DCR-TRV140 isn't listed here on epinions, I will try to make some comparisons of these two camcorders for those of you trying to decide which one to buy.

Great picture. Easy to use. Loads of features. Backward compatible with Hi8 and 8mm recordings

Hi8 and 8mm playback not perfect. Not that great for still pictures
