'3 megapixel effective sensor resolution'
'Sony has added their popular zoom and record buttons to the side of the DCR-TRV280s LCD screen.'
'Low light performance was generally poor'
'the button placement is awkward, but with a little practice the user can make those adjustments with ease.'
'This camcorder functions like the smaller MiniDV camcorders, but allows the user to record to Digital8 tape and, as the TRV460 is backward compatible, 8mm and Hi8 tapes as well.'
'The DCR-TRV460 is capable of playing back 8mm, Hi8 and Digital8 video tapes for maximum convenience for those who have an existing library of analog cassettes.'
'The toggle looks quite small, and feels a little fragile to the touch'
'An unfortunate quality of the DCR-TRV260 is its lack of the spot metering or spot focus'
'It's too bad that the user has to rely on the camcorder to make color temperature decisions.'
'it seems very square like and odd to handle'
'You can transfer the movies and the stills to your computer using a supplied USB cable, but it does not allow you to transfer full resolution quality video from your tape to your computer (you have to use Firewire for that).'
'the progressive video and the larger LCD are not really worth the investment'
'the quality of the digital zoom is so bad, as it is with
any other camcorder, that you should never use it.'
