I have talked to alot of ppl about this camcorder and
all agree that for beginners and advanced
investigators its a steal for the price which is
around $239.00 so it goes to show you that you dont
need to have the most expensive or the coolest looking
equipment to do investigations.



This cam i have found out is one that in my
opinion is perfect for Investigations.It is a step up
and then some from the SONY CCD-TRV138 that is in Part
1 of this topic. But it has more features then the
CCD-TRV138 and one of them features is whats called
(SteadyShot digital stabilization) which helps when
walking as you investigate instead of a bouncing
affect when played back the play back is smooth or
(steady) which in turn allows for easier examination
of footage of your investigation.

I have looked arounfd and found the price to be
between ($284.99-$299.99). and for the features that
come with this cam i feel and others also feel it is
by far one of the best deals out there. Again you dont
need to spend $400 or more for a awesome video cam.
