Sony DCR-TRV6 MiniDV Camcorder

Operating manual


Product Description From Sony:

The TRV6 utilizes a 680,000-pixel CCD, which uses advanced hole accumulation diode technology to help reduce the video noise that can result when shooting in low- light conditions. The Carl Zeiss professional-quality lens features a 10x optical zoom to get you right into the action, while the digital image stabilization helps eliminate jitter and hand shake. The TRV6 can utilize the infrared portion of the spectrum to shoot in near-dark situations. If you want to use it, the TRV6 also has manual focus capability, which you can use to eliminate tricky focus situations that confuse the camera. In addition, the manual focus can be used to create depth-of-field effects. To compose your films, you can use either the standard eyepiece viewfinder or a 2.5-inch swivel color LCD display.

An iLink (IEEE 1394) port allows for quick and easy transfers of footage to a computer or other camcorders. The TRV6 also comes with an analog pass-through port, allowing you to convert old analog footage into digital. With Sony's LaserLink feature, playback can be a snap--you can just aim the camera 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. The LCD monitor has a readout detailing the amount of battery power left, and the camera can also capture digital stills.
