Summary: When I received it the firewire interface was unworkable. I have not been able to use this camera since I bought it. As far as I am concerned, I paid for a working camera and I received a non-working camera.
Summary: The eye piece view finder dose not work but the viewing screen works so I will be keeping the item. Ate a tape once and cannot fast rewind tapes so i use my external rewinder there were several scratches on the housing but other than that it was worth the money and the seller response was aces.
