Camcorders that take stills are becoming much more common, but those that take 1-megapixel stills are still very few and far between. The Sony DCR-TRV20 features the capability of producing 1,152 x 864 images, which are stored on the included 4 MB Memory Stick. Plus you get the superior video and audio inherent in digital video.
The quality Carl Zeiss 10x optical zoom lens is paired with Sony's Super SteadyShot image stabilization to help reduce the effects of unsteadiness common at high zoom levels. A 3.5-inch color LCD monitor makes it easy to frame your shots. Additionally, the DCR-TRV20 features analog inputs, so you can convert your old footage to digital. Super NightShot is an infrared mode for 0-lux shooting. And Sony's Super LaserLink technology means you can wirelessly play back your footage on any TV equipped with a LaserLink receiver.
