Product Description From Amazon.com:
The Sony DCR-TRV520 uses the Digital 8 format, which digitally records images onto standard Hi8 tapes. If you're upgrading from an 8mm or Hi8 camera, this format gives you the combined benefits of digital image quality and backwards compatibility with your old tapes.
A 25x optical zoom and 450x digital zoom will bring your shots closer, and Sony SteadyShot image stabilization technology will help to keep shakes and wobbles out of your video. For audio, the DCR-TRV520 offers 16-bit PCM digital stereo with 12-bit dubbing. If you prefer to shoot in the 16:9 widescreen ratio, this is also an option. To compose your films, you can use either the standard eyepiece viewfinder or a 3.5-inch swivel color LCD display.
With Sony's LaserLink feature, playback can be a snap--you just aim the DCR-TRV520 at the LaserLink receiver on select Sony TVs from up to 16 feet away, press play, and enjoy your videos directly on your TV--without wires or cassette adapters.
