Three CCDs ARE better than one!

 

Superb video quality, 3CCD sensors, 1MP stills, MPEG movies, Memorystick, iLink port, Bluetooth.

I have owned a SONY TRV900 for over 5 years since September 1999. I keep it clean and dry and occasionally run the Sony cleaning tape through it. It has never needed serving or repair. The pictures are phenomenal. Absolutely beautiful, clear color ...

RELIABLE. STURDY. Beautiful, natural color. Great in low light. Clear sound. Super-sharp LCD screen
