Maybe you are looking at recording your loved animals, such as Fluffy the kitten, or your newly-born, Brooklyn, or maybe those steamy nights of passion..........well; the 355 will suit any enthusiast who has an eye on capturing those moments of sadness, joy and love.......on tape.

Big boys' toys (cool for girls as well)

AdvantagesLoads of features and buttons

Disadvantagesperhaps too many for most users

"I'm on to my third camcorder in twelve years, and this is without question the best I've ever had. Apologies in advance, if you are not familiar with video and digital technology, the rest of this article will be pretty heavy going, suffice to say, and without wanting to be patronising, if you are in this position, you probably wouldn't have much use for a bit of kit like this. Sony make a range of camcorders of varying complexity and prices, ..." Read review

A truely great Camcorder

AdvantagesVery good quality extras

Disadvantagesnone

"This is one of the better Digital Camcorders on the market. It's light, durable and quite small.It has many great features such as: Night shot Night shot can enable you to see and record in the dark with great detail for up to 20 metres in pitch black areas. It is very good for recording nature documentries. A lot like having night vision goggles! Steadyshot This is a very cool feature which reduces the amount of wobblyness of your recordings. ..."

Sony.... Keeping those tapes alive!!

AdvantagesCompatability to play/edit previous Hi8 tapes

DisadvantagesBulky in terms of digital camcorders

"Sony was my 1st choice to replace my previous camcorder that typically had started to go wrong just after my daughter was born. I wanted to go digital but didn't want to lose the option to play the hundreds and I mean hundreds of Hi8 tapes that I still haven't put onto VHS!! So I checked out the options to see that Sony do the TRV355E, I thought the idea excellent, a combination of both. The main reason I chose this camcorder was for this option, ..." Read review

Buy if you are entering digital camcorder world

AdvantagesGood picture quality compared to other camcorders

DisadvantagesBulky, slow startup

"...hell bent on buying a Sony Digital Camcorder. Maybe for the brand name associated with quality. After a lot of research on other brands as well, I settled for Sony. I started to consider DCR TRV 145 for the price. Then slowly, as I gathered more information on the picture quality, optical zoom and digital zoom, I settled on DCR TRV 355. The Mini DVs were on the costlier side (more than £550). And the optical zoom of 20x also influenced my decision ..." Read review
