An excellent entry level digital camcorder that’s affordable. Excellent price and delivered well within quoted delivery time. Inshort – very happy, would recommend to a friend. Pros:20x zoom gives an impressive result, and ‘steadyshot’ helps a lot whenzoomed in, though a tripod is still a must for a truly steady shot at thatmagnification. Dv in/out (firewire) allows use of third party software (cost varies) suchas ulead mediastudio, or pinnacle studio. Only after i had triedmediastudio pro did i get really excited about capturing, editing andburning to vcd or dvd or even back to tape. The camera can be controlledby the pc, allowing it to speed up the capture process, or even slow itdown to avoid frame drops on slower pcs. Needless to say, if you want toget serious with digital editing, a reasonable spec pc is a must, and lotsof disk space. A 10 min clip captured as an avi was nearly 2gb, but ofcourse the file can be mpeg compressed after capture. Has a built in visible light (leds) for up to 1.

Trv265e doesn’t play analogue. I only give this 4 stars instead of 5 due to the ambiguous product information prior to buying. I have a lot of old analogue tapes and have been transfering them to digital via an old matrox card. I wanted a digital camera and thought digital 8 would be a good evolutionary route as i could play my old tapes on one and transfer direct to the pc via firewire. I did a google search and found several site recommending the trv265e and claiming that it could play old analogue tapes (note the amazon site does not make this claim). I went to the sony site and there was no information on the trv265e only the trv265. I bought from amazon as it was the cheapest and i am an existing customer. The camera is great and i recommend it but it cannot play back analogue tapes only the trv460e @ £350 can. I must continue to convert my analogue tapes with a capture card. The trv265e can record digitally onto old analogue tapes, so i won’t be short of media.

I recently bought this camera for the amazon price from another internet supplier, it being my first digital camera i was sceptical to whether i had a good deal, but without a doubt this camera is 5 stars. I was happy to see it worked well and was easy to use given a quick read of the manual, i was also amazed at some of the features including a bright light and even night vision. Only have it for a few days i have thoroughly enjoyed using it and will do for ages to come.

I have recently purchased this camcorder through amazon, and am happy to say the process was a joy. The camcorder has arrived 2 days earlier than predicted and it is a great camcorder. We recently upgraded to digital from analouge and after reasearching the subject decided that this camcorder was an ideal comprimise between features and price. This camcorder has many top notch features for the price including night shot plus which is fantastic, you can film in virtually total darkness. I am more than happy at the quality of the filming and feel i have made a great purchase. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

Sony DCR-TRV265E Digital Camcorder : This camera is amazing for the priceits got fantastic features20x optical zoomnight shot- great for recording in total darknesslcd- a nice size and clear lcddv in and dv out- pc editing990x digital zoom- never usedlight- graet to briten up certain places while filmingthe sound quality is second to nonei have played the picture back on my pc and i am very plased with picture qualityit has slow play, plus long playi get a lot of bother from the neighbour, so im going to stick this in the window and run the power through the ac power supply as the battery only last 120 mins maxas it is digital, it has more the 500 lines- this is very good more than most cctvand with long play i can tape for an an hour and a half, then just rewind it if nothing has happened and record over it againas being digital the picture quality wont deterate. Like vcr and analogue camcorder picture does when re-recordingso for only £219 it much better than paying £180 for a analouge camcorder, digital is far betterthe software supplied is ok, but with windows mivie maker, and most computers having nero video software or other video editing software, this is no problemalso you can save all you recordings to a computer, insted of keeping them on a tape, saves buying more tapes, but will use memory on your hard driveit looks good, a nice silver finishi would recommend using digital 8 tapes, instead of 8mm or hi8, as there better quality, plus last longer, if you do use 8mm or hi8 and the tape is for 90 mins it will only last an hourwell hope this helpsif your after a good digital camcorder at a great price, buy this you cant beat it.

Should’ve bought from amazon. I have bought things from amazon before, and have always been pleased with the low prices. However, i was unaware that amazon sold this camera. I bought it at argos a few days ago for £300. Uk today to see it £80 cheaper. It sometimes confuses me how amazon make any money with prices as low as thesethe camcorder itself is excellent. The picture and sound quality is second to none, and the zoom is crystal clear. Even if you don’t need to buy a digital camcorder, at £220 its silly not to.

Great camcorder, not so good software. I have just recevied the camcorder and love it. It’s so easy to use and so far, the quality is really clear. My only disappointment, is the software that came with it. Does anyone know of any other software that i could use to make a dvd of my films, without the need of a video capture card?. The software provided does allow me to make vcd’s, but not dvd’s. The camcorder itself though gets 5 points out of 5.

Looking for a bargain digi camcorder?. Bought this camera mainly because of the price, i have seen it advertised elsewhere for £330+ so it’s a bargain from amazon. Secondly, the features you get for £250 couldn’t be better, 20x zoom, lcd screen and hi-fi stereo sound. I have used a friends hi-8 camcorder before and found the playback to be grainy and often with lines in, much like a vcr playback. Took some footage the other day with this baby, played it back on my tv and was pleasantly surprised to see extremely high quality, almost dvd like video with excellent sound, plus, hook it up to a pc with the usb cable provided and start burning your own vcd’s and dvd’s. The software provided with the camera is, to be honest, useless, but get yourself a decent video editing software, i use nero’s bundled encoding software, and you can knock together some swanky looking home movies with effects and all. Buy this, and it’s £250 well spent. Get some tapes, only thing not included.

I bought this item to film a special event and we couldn’t be more pleasedwith it–very easy to use for all of us, kids too, and gives greatresults. My only gripe is the short battery life (90/120 mins), but sinceit charges in minuites and i’d planned to buy a spare anyway, it’s not amajor issue for me. The built in light is an added bonus at this price,the lcd screen couldn’t be clearer, and is great fun. Plus it comes withusb cable and all necessary software for computer editing. Great value formoney too, at this price.
