Sony DCR-PC105, DCR-TRV22

 

Despite excellent construction and feel, neither Sony camera stood out in our testing.

Unfortunately, we couldn't run studio trials on the DCR-PC105. Our first test unit broke during testing, and the second one had a faulty gain control. Normally this control boosts weak signals, but on the DCR-PC105 it produced overly bright video that...

Sony DCR-TRV22 MiniDV Digital Camcorder Review - Sony MiniDV Camcorders

 

I first looked at the $700 Sony MiniDV DCR-TRV22 at the Consumer Electronics Show 2003 in Vegas when Sony announced it. Now, a few months later, after looking at it in full review I'm more impressed - with the camcorder and video quality, but not the...

Sony DCR-TRV22 First Impressions Camcorder Review - Sony MiniDV Camcorders

 

The DCR-TRV22, priced at $700, is Sony's second cheapest MiniDV camcorder for 2003. It is a part of the redesign of most of the Sony MiniDV line - announced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2003. At the show I got to spend a good amount of time playing...

Camcorder Review: Sony DCR-TRV22 Mini DV

 

If you're on a budget, but in need of a Mini DV camcorder, Sony offers the DCR-TRV22, a solid unit that could be a good fit for beginning or intermediate users. A reasonably thorough slate of manual controls makes the unit a safe choice that can grow...

Sony DCR TRV22

 

Sony DCRTRV22 MiniDV Camcorder with 2.5" LCD, Color Viewfinder & Memory Stick Capability.

With a size that is 28 percent smaller and lighter than Sony's previous camcorders, the Sony DCR TRV22 does not compromise powerful optics and audio performance. The camcorder's features include a 10x optical zoom, a 1/4-inch CCD for clean imaging, a...

I LOVED this camcorder, BUT......

 

I searched and searched in June 2003 to find the perfect camcorder to bring us up to speed in technology, in other words, to replace the old VHS camcorder that had died! We were soon leaving for our family vacation at the beach, so I didn't have much ...

Lightweight, great pics, digital image stabilizer, great quality, easy zoom, overall a great camera

Durability! Camera stopped working properly after 1 1/2 years

Nice and Compact - should be on your shopping list

 

I've owned my Sony TRV-22 camcorder for about a year now - time for a review. Introduction: I bought my Sony DVR-TRV22 about a year ago, and I've been very happy with it. I was looking for a compact camcorder to replace my old Sony 8mm handicam - it ...

Good picture, well built, reliable. Compact

Camera noise in quiet scenes, menu system on LCD only. Software sparse
