Sony Handycam DCR-TRV33 MiniDV Camcorder : Great Product and buy!

Sony dcrtrv33 minidv 1megapixel camcorder with 2. 5′ lcd, color viewfinder & memory stick capabilitiesi’ve owned this camera since june 2003, and i’ve run a lot of tape through it. Overall, the sony dcr-trv33 minidv is a pretty straight-forward camcorder to use, but i wouldn’t give it more than a three star rating. On the pro’s list:the camera records nice clear images in natural, daytime lighting. It’s light weight allows stable handheld shooting even for extended periods. The reversible, flip-out, 2. 5′ lcd color display is easy to see when shooting indoors or in subdued outdoor lighting. The touch screen controls are responsive and fairly easy to locate and use with practice. The mini-dv cassette is easy to load and remove, as is the memory stick and the battery pack. All of the controls are within easy reach, when the camera is held in the right hand.

I had this camera and it got damaged, i needed another one and found it on amazon. The seller gave a good price and the product was in great condition. I am happy to have it and continue creating my video and photo projects.

We had basically this same camera for many years and wanted to replace it after it died. We have 3yrs of sports left and wanted all videos on the same format. Great condition, works fine, even included a nice case as well.

I bought this camera 10 years ago and it still running strong. Never had an issue with it except when it got wet on a rafting trip, but amazingly it sorted itself out. I only recently bought a hd camera as i was waiting for the past few years for the trv33 to die, but it never did. The video quality was great on sd sets, but its showing its age on hd. Thought i would provide my comments for anyone considering this vintage camera for purchase. I’m quite surprised that its retained such a high resale value after all these years. Testament i suppose to its amazing quality. Built back in the days when sony was a completely different company.

Sony Handycam DCR-TRV33 MiniDV Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom, 3-Inch Touch-Panel LCD and 1 MP Still Image : I like this camcorder very much because it is light weight does a great job and you can make video’s for up to an hour long or more depending on the size of the memory stick. I have seen and used many camcorders and this one is by far one of my favorites. Most people don’t put a video on youtube that is more than 20 minutes long and this camcorder will do that. If you want to do an hour long video and you have it on vhs tape you can take the output from the vhs tape send it to the camcorder and click on rec on the camcorder and copy a movie or anything else that you want to put on a dvdthis is one of the great things i like about this camcorder. I think it is a great camcorder and highly recommend it.

I’m very happy with the camcorder. When i didn’t have the right msb cord, they ordered a replacement from sony and had it shipped to me. You can’t beat that kind of business. Thanks so much for your help with that.
