I Love this Camcorder


This camcorder is a wonderful unit. I just love it. I was afraid it would be hard to operate but I found the instruction manual very easy to read. Within minutes of opening the box I was ready to start filming. The digital still feature was the main...

Very easy to use, Takes digital stills, 3.5 in LCD screen size

A little heavy, LCD drains battery life really fast

looking for complete camcorder?


This camcorder is for some one who wants a complete camcorder.The first time i saw it i liked it because it had nightshot which lets you see at night in the dark, but you can only see 3 meters long of distance at night which is still good. The other...

I purchased this camcorder about six months ago. I have been really pleased with the abilities of it. Rather than purchasing one based solely on size, I looked at all the functions these cameras have to offer. The TRV520 has everything, especially...

Great quality picture, Easy to Use, Lots of functions and many ports.

TRV525 and what's coming with it


Being a very critic spirit, rarely I can say about a product that meets all my expectation, beating even the most optimistic expectations. This is the case with my Sony TRV525. From the day I bought it my daily activity has changed completely. This is...

Image quality, picture effects, reliable

Great Unit for the price


I am a first time owner of a camcorder but have used so many models owned by others. This is a great machine.

Great picture quality, 3.5inch screen and 25X opt zoom is great

3.5 inch Screen sucks power. Little heavy compared to latest models

Digital Video and Stills--the ?best? of both worlds?


I did some research on digital camcorders when I decided I wanted one and this camera seemed to fit the bill. I have never owned or operated a video camera in my life, so I thought I was in for a long learning curve. After learning to use it, which...

Easy camera to use, great computer adaptability.

Battery drains quickly, still picture quality is moderate.

To View, Or Not To View


I really have grown to like my Sony TRV520 and since I've had it my life has become much more digital. I no longer take pictures with my regular 35mm camera because my camcorder has a digital camera built in. The included memory stick has 4MB of memory...

Digital Recording on a Hi8 Tape!


The Sony DCR-TRV520 is a superb digital video camera for all your home movie needs. This camcorder has Digital8 technology developed by Sony. What this means it will record a digital signal with digital sound on a standard Hi8 tape.

You can play a 8mm or Hi8 home movie in the Sony DCR-TRV520.

Heavier and bulkier than a true digital camcorder.

Product Specifications

Feast your eyes on Digital8 pictures. Bask in Digital8 sound. And enjoy the show on Sony's 3-1/2 Inch SwivelScreen Color LCD Monitor of the DCR-TRV520 from Sony. DCR-TRV520 achieves stunning picture quality, with up to 500 lines of horizontal resolution and records high quality 12-bit digital stereo audio. Digital 8's recording pattern allows digital recording on affordable 8mm or Hi8 tapes. Built-in Digital Still Camera with Memory Stick allows you to store still images in digital format at 640x480 resolution in Sony's new Memory Stick memory. 12-bit/16-bit PCM Digital Stereo Audio Recording offers a choice of either a single 16-bit/48kHz stereo audio track for DAT-quality recording, or two 12-bit/32kHz stereo tracks for CD sound quality. To make sure you get the maximum benefit from each charge, Sony's InfoLithium batteries have no life-shortening "memory effect." To keep you informed of remaining power, Sony's AccuPower meter spells out remaining battery time in minutes on the camcorder's LCD Monitor or Viewfinder. Another thing you don't need to worry about is holding the camcorder perfectly still. Sony's SteadyShot system uses sophisticated motion sensors to remove unwanted picture shake. With Sony's Hyper-Precision CCD image sensors, you're not sacrificing image size or picture quality. Super NightShot Enables you to shoot subjects up to 3 meters away in total darkness. Sony Digital Handycam camcorders record audio in the digital format, which gives you the power, clarity, and accuracy you've become accustomed to from compact discs. Control L (LANC) Provides two-way communication between the camcorder and other video devices. When you're out shooting the action, the last thing you want to see is the dreaded flashing battery indicator - the sign that you've got no power left. That's why Sony cut power consumption and extended battery life. Forget about cables, wires and adapters. Sony's Super LaserLink system uses infrared light to make a wireless connection from your camcorder to your television. Just use the transmitter in that is built-in to the camcorder together with the optional receiver. The Super LaserLink System features a transmission range up to 8 meters.
