Eating tapes

PB, Amazon
21 April 2009
  • Summary: My husband purchased this in early 2000 for a trip to Africa. It worked well back then, and it worked very well for our wedding in '04. He hadn't really used it since Africa, though. Since then we have used it very little, maybe 6 hours worth of total video taping before we put it away for about 3 years, until yesterday. I've been digitizing all our old home movies from VHS to DVD on a GREAT little Sony DVDirect(purchased through Amazon).

Just wait yours will eat tapes too

Steve V. "svandi", Amazon

  • Summary: All those that wrote great reviews about the camera will be back extolling how their camcorder now eats tapes. I've had my ZR-10 since Dec 2000 and now just in the last couple of weeks of Nov 2003 it is eating tapes and will not accept a brand new tape. Luckily (maybe) I did buy the extended warranty that the retailer offered and it is still under some sort of warranty. We'll see.

Worked for the 1st year, now eats tapes

Linda, Amazon
12 December 2002
  • Summary: I got this camera almost 2 years ago. I was very pleased with its simplicity and quality, which suited my weekend-homemovie-making needs. I have used it in Florida humidity and Nevada dusty desert with no problems. I had taped and watched well over 100 hours of footage, and then began to have occasional problems like a tape being eaten. However, now that my warranty has run out, I am encoutering more frequent problems with loading tapes, both for viewing and recording.

I can't believe they call this a digital camcorder

nicole, Amazon
20 February 2001
  • Summary: The size is perfect. It's easy to use, once you figure it out. Also the special effects are cool. But when it comes to video quality--what a disappointment and the still pictures are terrible as well. Who wants a camcorder that looks good but doesn't perform well? I returned it not even a week after I bought it. If you want good video quality don't buy this camera.

Bell and whistle dream- with a few flaws

James M. Sellers "sellersphoto.com", Amazon
20 November 2000
  • Summary: I bought mine to replace a 5 year old Sony Hi-8. I was very impressed with the small size, recording quality, and the amount of bells and whistles that came with it. I was a little displeased with the zoom range of the lens. It dose not wide enough and shooting in tight spaces is difficult. It does however zoom to 200 with pretty good quality. Other complants are: *The 2" viewing screen in not brigh enough to be seen clearly in daylight.
