Sony Handycam DCR-TRV250: Test Footage

Dec 16, 2019
(more info)
This line of the Sony Handycam was released in 2003 alongside the DCR-TRV150, DCR-TRV350, and DCR-TRV351 for Digital8 models, and the CCD-TRV118/CCD-TRV318/CCD-TRV418 for Hi8 models.

The Sony Handycam DCR-TRV250 was one of the entry level camcorders for this year's lineup. It had a few features that the lower level 150 didn't, like a USB jack for streaming video to a computer and a remote control sensor. It, however, lacks the ability to play back Video8 and Hi8 tapes, like the 350/351. The 350/351 also has a microphone jack, an LANC jack, and a Memory Stick slot.

That being said, the video from the 250 looks pretty good, I would go as far as to say that it can compete with today's camcorders, as long as the video is deinterlaced. The video light coupled with nightshot give it an outstanding scope of usability. The camcorder does a good job reproducing color, which may not come across well just because that's how importing tapes can be.
