Consumer review (



This is a beautiful and sexy cam, beneath the beauty is a powerful and well built workhorse which delivers stunning quality. I had previously owned Sony analog camcorder CCD-TRV815 and then I purchased JVC DVP7 just for the sheer size and ease of use....

Excellent Video and Still Quality. Superb handling, sturdy and lots of Finger Licking Fingering features.

May be the price factor. But this is a DCR-TRV80 without the frills.
