    Great Camera, Lots of Features, November 9, 1999
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Sony DCRTRV310 Handycam Digital Camcorder (Electronics)

    I purchased my 310 about 3 months ago and am nothing short of thrilled with it. It is truly an amazing camera. I am a professional cameraman and that makes me ultra critical when it comes to any type of consumer video gear.

    The only downside to this camera is that I have no way of controlling the dB video gain level on the camera. The 310 uses it’s own automated gain according to the amount of light in a given scene. For those who don’t know what I am talking about I mean that the image recorded becomes automatically more less or less grainy with the fluctuation of light levels. For example, if you are outside the camera automatically records at 0 dB, but as soon as you move it to an area with less light, the gain level begins to change, thus the image is recorded grainier as you move into areas with less light. That is my only real complaint about the 310.

    Among the main stellar features on this camera, one feature that I love is the true 16:9 aspect ratio. Other cameras and even the DCR-TRV8, which is the next step up in the Sony line of camcorders, do not have true 16:9 ability. They instead just put out two black borders on the top and bottom of the screen to simulate 16:9. This is a great feature especially if you have a 16:9 aspect ratio television.

    All in all, if you are looking to spend under a grand, look no further than to the DCR-310.

    I’ve played with this digital camcorder for about 5 days now and I am delighted with it’s quality and features. If anyone’s disappointed with the quality of the video (see reviews below), they are probably being unrealistic in their expectations. To get better video, you’d have to go up to a 3CCD camera (at about 3times the cost!). As for those who say that the camera is too big and heavy, I say just TRY shooting a still video without a tripod with a camera as small as a paperback book! You NEED something larger to get a good steady picture (even with “steadyshot”). I appreciate Sony’s innovative digital 8 because the tapes are less expensive, but you still have the quality of digital recording (the Pauses are terrific!). I’m not worried that these tapes are not interchangeable with the mini-DV format. I mean, how often would I want to trade digital tapes with someone? I also have the option of playing back any old 8 or hi-8 videotapes that were previously recorded, and converting them to digital (try THAT with a mini-DV camcorder)! I like having A/V outputs AND inputs so that I can digitally record from a source other than the camera lens. The Sony infrared “nightshot” is astounding. It’s like have nightvision goggles for your camcorder! The LCD screen on the TRV310 is WONDERFUL… 3.5 inches! The 20X optical zoom is sufficient, and going partway into the digital zoom ain’t too bad either (as long as you don’t try to actually use the full 360X!) I cannot say enough good things at this point. If I have to find something negative to say, I wish some of the controls were in easier locations to get to while I’m still filming. All in All, a nifty camcorder that I HIGHLY recommend!

    SONY’s Digital 8 is great!, November 18, 1999

    This review is from: Sony DCRTRV310 Handycam Digital Camcorder (Electronics)

    I bought SONY’s similar top of the line model TRV 510 shortly after becoming a new dad, this after much debate between the 310 and 510. I decided that the 510′s features and extras were worth the added expense. Overall this camcorder does a very decent job of making digital home videos and digital stills, but make sure you have plenty of light, otherwise the results will be slightly grainy. Didn’t notice the difference between the regular video and S Video hookups to my TV, SONY should have also included a titling function, the included battery is not sufficient for heavy taping and use, need to get the optional battery, at least 4 hrs, use the original for back-up. Still satisfed with my decision to get the TRV 510, but the TRV 310 would probably be a good choice too and also at less cost.
