  • Easy to use Handycam

    Mar 5, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: small, very easy to use
    Cons: Battery life is nothing to write home about.

    Summary: We've had this camera for a little over two years. The actual model number for the one I have is CCD-TR66, but it isn't listed (I imagine that it's because they have come up with newer, better ones since) and this one is the closest comparison to the ... read more

  • Sony CCD-TR416 - Great 8mm Video Camera that Lacks Good Sound Quality

    May 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great 8mm video quality, versatile, lightweight.
    Cons: Sound quality isn't as good and slightly high price.

    Summary: I have owned this video camera for over a year now, and am still very happy with it. I bought it at the reduced price of $250 (as it was a store model at Circuit City), so I really got a great deal since I have seen that the actual price is $449. ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good picture quality for analog model, easy to use, convenient, InfoLithium
    Cons: Digital models provide better picture, internal mic does not provide good sound

    Summary: Sony CCD-TR416 provides very good image quality - better than analog Samsung models I have seen, but worse than digital camcorders. The main limitation is the media – 8mm tapes provide about 240 lines of resolution vs. 500 lines in digital ... read more

    Pros: Brings the styles if 8mm back.
    Cons: With horrible consequences.
