What's the basic difference between these two model lines? Does one do any better in playback for transfer?
I have a DCR-TRV 720 that I'm using for transfer of 8mm, Digital8, and Hi8. It does have the TBC and DNR, and does have the DV -> Hi8 and 8 functionality. It's in great shape and seems to work perfectly, except for one little issue. When I plug in the external power supply I get visible and audible noise, both in the camera's built-in display/speaker and the transferred video. The audible sounds like static coming and going at various levels. The video noise is fine horizontal colored lines.
I've ordered a genuine Sony AC-L10A replacement external power supply. The one I have is a cheap generic model so I'm hoping that is causing the issue.
If it turns out there's an issue with the camera, I want to be prepared to buy something else. Thus the question about CCD vs DCR.
On a good note, I have VirtualDub
working in Windows 10 64-bit which is nice - 5,000+ frames captured, 1 dropped. I have HuffYUV
installed and I can process with it just fine.
This is getting fun! I'd love to stop spending money soon
