  • Sony CCD-TRV98 - Shoot Me Mom!

    Jul 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sony quality, reputation and tons of features.
    Cons: Heavy. Features take a while to learn.

    Summary: Having children plunged me into the world of video. Formerly scoffing at those who lugged camcorders around with them, I joined the club. Grandparents far away claim to enjoy having film of events they can't see in person. ... read more

  • BEWARE!! - Unreliable/Short Warranty

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Features
    Cons: Reliability; Warranty; Lack of real customer service; Price;

    Pros: Great Brand Equals Quality!

    Summary: My experience so far using this product has been great. My baby is due in about 4 days, and I wanted to have a great quality camcorder for years to come. I did my research, talked to my company's Media Expert, and he recommended Sony 100%. He asked me ... read more

    Pros: Lots of features, easy to use
    Cons: A tiny bit heavy to carry for long periods of time without a strap.

  • I have since discovered manual exposure

    Rated Show
    Pros: sony is a quality product
    Cons: I had to change the default exposure to get a good shot.

    Summary: Since writing my previous review I have discovered I can get a good picture by manually setting the exposure. It "remembers" my setting, so I don't have to re-set it every time I shoot. I like Sony, so I have re-rated it a 4. They would have gotten a ... read more

  • It broke after 4 years!

    Rated Show
    Pros: Great pictures. Super features like steady shot and night shot. Easy to use.
    Cons: Heavy. On/off switch hard to move. Expensive for a Hi 8.

    Summary: I have 3 Sony camcorders dating back 15 years. The other two still work. The CCD-TRV98 stopped "taking pictures" on Christmas day '05. Up to that point, I didn't know a Sony could break. I have everything Sony...TV, DVD Player, etc. They want over ... read more
