Excellent Camcorder


The Sony DCR-TRV50 is a wonderful camcorder. I am a feature person. Greater numbers of features allow for greater creativity in many cases and the TRV50 doesn't disappoint in this area. Though there are some minor drawbacks, the advantages of the TRV50...

Excellent feature set. Excellent video quality. Good still quality

A bit pricey. Limited manual controls

Low light filming, blue tooth. Large screen display and touch screen. Considering this is now an old model that I have had from new, it still produces stunning audio and video quality.

firewire connection now uslesss as allnew laptops/pc do not have them. I have had to purchase a second hand laptop with firewire to download my 30 hours of film to the computer in order to edit.
