Bought this little beauty whilst on holiday. Read the instructions on the balcony of my hotel room and withing a very short space of time i had visions of my pics appearing in vogue magazine. It really is such an easy camera to use – movies and stills reproduction was superb. Light and easily carried menu system and a really very good instruction manual. Highly recommended to all who are thinking of purchasing one and it really is great value at the current prices.

I bought one of these today, not my first camcorder, but an upgrade to digital from an old sharp viewcam, and i have to say i am amazed at the difference. Apart from the ultra compact design, its very light, and small enough to fit in your handbag without being fiddly. When holding the camera all the necessary buttons seem to be in just the right places, so you can just get on and shoot the film without finding buttons. The menu is via the touch sensitive screen, and is very easy to navigate. With the dv in/out and memory stick, it has all the features you could possibly require, and many more, for a very reasonable price, and the high quality sound and vision we have come to expect from sony and carl zeiss – a happy marriage.

I think that it a amazingly a complete camcorder at this price. Although, it was my first camcorder and i didn’t know much about it. However i found it very easy to use with excellent result.

The quality of picture which is fantastic along with the ease of use, in particular the touch screen operation is great. The only drawback i have noticed to date is that if you are filming with little or no background noise you can hear the camera motor on playback. However the camera is well put together and the results are superb. For anyone venturing into digital camcorders i would recommend this model.

Excellent picture capture and lifelike colour. If one thing id wished would be ,should have bought the 33,better in lower light conditions,but this is fine with the halogen light.

I spent ages looking round for a good digital camcorder. I came across the dcr-trv22e and i was amazed. I had delivered and with-in half an hour i had made a short film. This is my second camcorder and it is definitely worth the price.

Sony’s user friendly light but technology fat camera. I brought this camera couple of days ago after weeks of research on various websites and magazines. This camera has got all the little goodies you need for a very good price. The ease of use is amazing, strap the camera on and your fingers are in the perfect place to use every single button. The colour touch screen is very impressive and makes the camera a quality purchase. The addition of the memory stick slot enables the camera to take still images and mpegs on the card which is a very useful feature if you want to transfer to pc quickly. This camera would get 5 stars if it wasnt for the short battery life. With the viewer open you only get about 100 mins filming time but its not a major issue as you can get longer life batteries separate, however be expected to pay about £90 for a good one. A 8mb memory card is supplied which is good but this can only take about 4 mins of video and about 100 pictures, depending on the size and quality of the image. Overall – a very good quality stylish camera for the price, including all the sockets and bits you need to connect up with external devices.

Although i may only be thirteen, i can tell quality when i see it, and i’ve sure seen itthis camcorder has all the bonuses, nothing bad. I am one of a select group that truely appreciates colour viewfinders and i was searching on the internet for hours, trying to find a camera with a decent viewfinder and picture resolution, and now i’ve found iti managed to refilm all my previous productions with this camera and the difference between the two films – one filmed with my old jvc the other with this sony – was incredible. I really take my hat off to sony if they can make such a good camcorder – for professional or non-professional use – and charge a fraction of the price a corresponding camera in panasonic or philip’s brand would charge. I have found nothing wrong with this, and i’d reccomend it to anyone whether a first-time buyer or a someone who’s as mad about film making as methe bottom line is: buy it. You honestly won’t find anything better for this price.

This is best camcorder for this price. This is the best camcorder i have seen for many years. Thanks for sony’s value for the customer.

I bought the sony trv-22e camcorder after much deliberation (originally choosing the trv-18 then discovering it had been discontinued. It comes packed with many features, including colour lcd display giving you an idea of how the shot will be, low light capture which really defined when there isn’t much light about and memory stick compatible to shoot stills (it appears as a disk on you’re pc) the picture quality is amazing taking full advantage of the zeiss lens that comes on most sony’s, it is practical as well as functional having a small footprint size (not as small as micro but close enough). I chose this model because it has dv in/out for editing my future videos, playback control is via touch screen on the viewer which is a nice touch but i would recommend that you get a stylus for this operation as it has a better feel and won’t get marks on you’re screen over time. The sony trv22 is a great camera in my eyes and i am sure i will have years of fun with it. A few niggly points though, you do have to buy the tapes separately and a carry case which does not come as standard, but all in all it’s the camera for me.

Canon MD205 Digital MiniDV Camcorder, great little camcorder

This is a great camcorder for the price tag. The 36x zoom is excellent, and the impression stabilisation works pretty effectively. It really is rather lightweight and will suit neatly into a coat pocket. Picture high quality is not as good as more high-priced styles, but for filming household holiday …
