Sony DCR-TRV25 Camcorder Review - Sony MiniDV Camcorders

 

Sony's DCR-TRV25 is a brand new addition to the Sony MiniDV line with a street price around $899. Whereas many camcorders are upgrades to older models, Sony has added the DCR-TRV25 in-between the DCR-TRV18 and the DCR-TRV50.

A good, solid 1 chip consumer camcorder

 

Footage taken with the TRV-25 outdoors on a clear day could easily be mistaken for footage taken wit ...

excellent color range, fast accurate autozoom, manual exposure controls, easy computer interface

on board mic, touchy zoom, tiny buttons, low light/indoor quality

Very satisfied

 

I thoroughly enjoy using this camera. Being able to edit the tapes on my computer has been a great experience. It is a very simple process with the right software ( I use Ulead Video Express).

Small, great video, plenty of features

Tape ejects from the bottom, low light capability

The sony DCR-TRV25

 

As a desktop publisher, I got interested in video editing, so I wanted to purchase a good quality camera. For my price range, the TRV25 was the best I could get. Although great for home or fun, this isn't something I would use for professional filming....

good reliability, can go anywhere, good video quality

pictures are not so well done, lighting greatly affects quality

A Great Feature-Rich Camera

 

When I started looking at camcorders, I talked to a friend of mine who videotapes football games, weddings and such. He recommended a Mini DV camcorder because of the video quality and flexibility. Because of our budget, I had to find one for around...

Many Features

Have to remove it from the tripod to change the tape

Sony delivers

 

I bought the TRV-25 after many hours and days of reading reviews and comparing features and prices.

Great features, good size, Sony quality

A bit pricy

Good investment

 

We bought our Sony camcorder mainly for our trip to Disney World. We've been borrowing my parents' older JVC camcorder, but I wanted a good digital camera too. Since we would be packing for three adults and two children for one week's stay in...

Small size camcorder and digital camera in one

Kind of heavy when taping a long show

A solid camcorder with a tweak of magic!

 

I bought this camcorder from Best Buy which has an extensive amount of electronic selections. The price was $700 plus another $50 for Best Buy's two year insurance policy.

video, easy to use, light for me

overpriced
