A solid no nonsence camcorder. The sony trv245 offers usb streaming. Not the smallest camcorder available, but it is solidly constructed and offers all the essential features you’d expect from a camcorder, plus the real bonus of usb streaming. Computer hardware permitting. Lcd screen is very robust, unlike other camcorders i have experienced. You will not be disappointed. Particularly at this price which is very competitive. I recommend you purchase the stamina battery which potentially offers 11 hours battery life to bring the camera up to its full potential.

I’d been thinking about buying a digital camcorder for a while now and i finally bit the bullet and bought this sony dcr-trv250e. So far i’ve very impressed, although having read some other reviews, i made sure that i’d bought some tapes at the same time. The camera was excellently packed, with just the right amount of gizmos and not too much literature, however to throw in one of sony’s own tapes, wouldn’t have gone a missonce unpacked, it was fairly self evident where things went and i was soon recording footage of the family and pets. The size and weight are just about right, so you feel secure in holding it and your shots are steady. The power control and recording button are under your thumb (like most cameras) however sony have done away with the tilting switch for the zoom, which is a little disappointing as the sliding switch, to me feels a little too far away. It’s also very sensitive, although this is not a complaint as after a while, with practice, it gets easier to control. The lcd is a nice size and is very clear, and you don’t have to be looking straight at it to see it. The mechanism for opening it out is firm and smooth, so it doesn’t feel like it’s going to fall off.Underneath are a few controls, and a small speaker for playback.

Picture quality after streaming. I am happy to buy this cute piece. Very satisfied than what i had thought of it or any digital cam. The only problem is the picture quality goes down once i stream it on cmptr and load pictures. May be the screen is not compatible or i am not using i link. I am using the usb streaming. The second problem is the short battery life , so when you buy it buy additional battery as a reserve. But over all it’s easy to use and smart.

Shame about the low volume level at playback. Started off with a analogue sony trv57e what a great little camcorder no problems encounterd still going strong several years later, but now wanting to get into dvd burning so took the dive and decided on purchasing a sony digital 8 trv 250efirst up the play back volume is far to low, tride going into the menu to improve things but still no joy, then the casset eject button at bottom of camera??. How awkward, then when sliding this button nothing??. Blast brocken, no you have to open it yourself then and only then dose the damping affect come into affect and open the casset draw. Hoping to find some helpful info on upgrading the battery to a longer lasting replacement by perhaps a diferent manufacturer that costs less but finding any info on this is a real challenge.

This camcorder is fantastic with all of the things you need with it. It also has many effects you can choose from and you can make a title witch is fun for everyone. I have found it cheaper in other places.

Sony DCR-TRV250 Digital8 Camcorder : Hello,if you are looking for a cheap and best dig camcoder ,then this one you can. It has all the latest technics and quality. You can use a pc to move images using s/w givn with items. Only thing you remeber your pc should be win98/se or above.

I have recently decided to purchase a camcorder, and opted to go with sony. I am amazed at how simle it is to use, as usual i left it to my husband to sus out as im not the best at these things, but i was recording in no time and its now a fight over who uses it first. The picture quality is excellent, better than any of the other brands we saw in the shop and although it looks quite big and heavy, i found it very easy to hold in my hand for a long period of time. Now we can tape all those valuable moments that we have been meaning to do for years, without breaking the bank. Overall, i reccomend the trv 250 to anyone.

The picture quality from this camera is excellent. I edit the footage using premiere 6. The only thing i’m not too keen on is if you have the camera on a tripod you can’t change tapes as the eject button is on the bottom, seems like a strange design to me. Also it doesn’t have an automatic lens cover like previous sony camcorders, so you have to remember to put the cover back on when you’re not shooting. Apart from that i can’t fault it really.

Great features, great value. As a committed fan of cine film, and its ease of editing, and someone who hates watching unedited hours of other people’s videos, i was really nervous about buying a camcorder when my wife suggested it. However, the advent of digital video, with its ability to be edited easily on a pc persuaded me. The trouble was, which one to buy?.With cameras ranging in price from cheap to very expensive, and a limited budget i was very unsure. Extensive reading of the various magazine suggested the dcr-trv250 was the one for us. We wanted dvin to we could record edited shows back onto tape, but we weren’t bothered about having the camera very small – i think they are hard to hold steady if they are really tiny. We didn’t need backwards compatibility to play old analogue hi-8 tapes, and we were not looking for one which could take photo quality stills, so this one seemed to fit the bill. With sony’s reputation for quality and innovation, you seemed to get a lot of good features for the price, so we took the plunge. We have not been disappointed.

On recieving the sony trv250 i was so excited as this was my first camcorder. I had used camcorders before and knew about the different feautures that you could get but this was the first camcorder i had ever owned. The main reason i wanted this specific model was because of the features and extras that this model included, but another reason i wanted this camcorder was becuase i have always been impressed with sony products, offering both value for money, and impressive performance. The list of feautures includes sonys nightshot and steadyshot, and some of the basic features that are standard on digital camcorders. I was very excited about having nightvision and had already planned all sorts of short horror clips i would be able to make with my friends. I knew that i was going to be using digital editing so i ordered a dv kit including a firewire card and a cable. This was very uselful becuase i wanted to make full use of thr camera which included using its dv in/out to edit and store my footage. The sound and video quality is very impressive and no differences can be seen between digital 8 and dv tapes. A big benefit with digital 8 is the affordability, the tapes to fit this model are just hi-8 apes.
