...It had to cost less than £400 So with these points in mind I set off and searched the internet and came up with the Sony DCR TRV245. Next I went into Dixons to get a hands on look at the camera and was very impressed with what I saw. OK there were some smaller cameras at the time, but they ... Read review

For all those school play memories....

AdvantagesUSB streaming, somewhat lighter than my last camcorder.

DisadvantagesBit outdated, much smaller and lighter camera's now available.

"...and came up with the Sony DCR TRV245. Next I went into Dixons to get a hands on look at the camera and was very impressed with what I saw. OK there were some smaller cameras at the time, but they were twice the price and didn't meet all my criteria. So I went ahead and ordered on-line (I'm not silly I knew I could get it cheaper than dixons, I just wanted to see it in the flesh, so to speak). * * * * * * * * * In the box * * * * * * * * * The ..."

DisadvantagesNone that I can think of,

Sony Handycam DCR TRV245 - a good camcorder

AdvantagesLooks modern, good for it's age, many features, good battery life

DisadvantagesCan now get much better for much less! A bit big in todays world

"I brought this about 4 or 5 years ago, so it is getting fairly old now. I brought it from Agros, at £300, which, at the time, was a good deal, however, you now see camcorders 10 times better, smaller, and lighter, for a much lower price. Damn, if only they were that cheap back then... But oh well. The camcorder's looks is pretty nice, looks modern (even though now fairly old), and quite stylish. In it's time, it was fairly small and light, but ..." Read review

'Handy cam'

Advantageseasy to use, steady shot, nightcam, 700x digi zoom

Disadvantages..none that can thin of

"I have been using this cam since christmas and have had no problems with it. Found very easy to use and think that the video quality is very good. Also found the sound quailty excellent. The battery seems to last for good while and changes up quite fast ( closing LCD screen also gives you more battery time but found bit harder to film anything from the viewfinder because of size and being in black n white) anyway.. LCD though is great, thought it ..." Read review
