    Default Sony TRV230 vs. Sony TRV245 (UK Models)

    Hopefully someone out there has either of these camcorder models and
    can give me an unbiased view :-)

    I've narrowed my choice down to these two and cannot decide which to
    get...

    The TRV230 is an older model but features ogue-In which I would
    like to archive some old VHS tapes

    The TRV245 is a current model but doesn't feature DV or ogue-In

    So basically, can anyone tell me is the picture/features of the more
    current TRV 245 so much superior to the TRV230 to warrant me buying it
    (the TRV245)

    Has anyone seen both models in action and can compare the picture
    quality between the two? Ideally I *would like* ogue-In as a
    feature, but ultimately I'd prefer a budget digital camcorder with
    better picture quality...

    Any help MUCH APPRECIATED!

    Thanks in advance,
    J.B.

    AFAIK the older D8 camcorders were often better than the new models.
    (The newer models have fewer features and are cheaper.) YMMV.

    Mark.

    I would even suggest to go back one generation and look for the TRVx20
    model,
    Where X is 3, 5, 7. They are so much nicer to look at, load the tape
    from the top, have lighted controls in the VTR mode, and on and on.
