I considering one of the following camcorders:
It seems like TRV50 in the newer model with several features that don't exist in TRV30 (i.e. BlueTooth interface and Touchscreen) the only disadvantage I found was that the TRV50 weight more than TRV30.
To you know the reason TRV30 cost more then TRV50?
Are there any hidden disadvantages to TRV50?
Thanks in advance for your help,

I purchased a 50 a few weeks ago (My first video camera and digital still camera). Initially I was looking at the 30 but found out that is is being replaced by the 50 - only demo models are being sold in Canada anyway (as per the Sony Store). Probably more expensive since the model came out last year and was the newest technology (1.5 megapixel) at the time. I will never use bluetooth, but am happy with the camera and all its other features (the 50 allows mpeg recording for the entire (and/or remaining) memory stick memory. The 30 only allowed you to record 15 seconds of high quality mpeg, and i think a little more using lower quality. I takes excellent close up photos (flowers, etc.) and pretty good people shots. I brought some pics to the photo shop and printed up some 4 x 6 and 5 x 7 - I am preety happy with the results. I am a little leary about having to use the touch screen for some options. I do not know how long it will last over the years but I am sure Sony would not put it in a product if they did not do their R & D.
Overall a very good camera and I look forward to many years of use. Good Luck!

If you are not interested in bluetooth
( requires another part to be purchased )
or the touchscreen ( gets kinda dirty )
look at the tvr27 DV
