GREAT VIDEO CAMERA

gutz6224, Ebay
2 June 2009
  • Summary: Got it used on ebay and once I fixed it got it to take some amazing video. This is a consumer camcorder that clearly can measure up to prosumer or even better. For me it was definately a good investment and would recommend to others wanting a camera that shoots great video.

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder in 12/04 and I had to take it for service 4 times already. The screen was too dark and when I record, it show in slow motion. The worse camcorder I ever bought bought not to mention the service I received. I take it for service, 2 weeks later I pick it up only to find out I still have the same problem Don't waste your money.

Great Quality, Great Price

The Trojan, Amazon
7 January 2005
  • Summary: I bought this as a wedding gift for my sister, and have used it to shoot loads of footage at the wedding. Firstly, I havent heard ANY motor noise (and nobody else seeing the video has either). And I used it in both dimly lit rooms and normally lit rooms as well as outdoors. The picture quality is great, and the sound quality too. The ease of use of this camera in automatic mode meant that any relative of mine could step into my shoes when i wasn't around.

S. Nguyen, Amazon
4 January 2005
  • Summary: I see two people reported noise and 17 mentioned no problem, with one specifically saying they had not noticed this at all. I just want to second that I have han NO noise at all. I have tested it with both normal volume recording at a christmas party as well as a situation with no noise at all, and I can here no noise from the motor on any recording. I am also surprised that soemone mentioned no tape in the package.

How to make the Date & Time showed when transfer onto PC?

Visionner "Ho", Amazon
3 January 2005
  • Summary: Basically, It's a median quality product for a very reasonable price. Mine is working without any huge noise. Just one thing though, does any one know how to make the Date & Time shown when transfer onto PC? I need help. With analog A/V output to VCR, there's no problem. But when I use either USB or i-Link to transfer the Pictures or Mini DV Video onto the PC, the the Date & Time can never be displayed in my Video Edit Program or the DVD I made, and I don't really...

Motor noise is, in fact, excessive

Travis Bird, Amazon
20 December 2004
  • Summary: I read the reviews and decided to take the plunge anyway. This was a mistake and I ended up returning the camera because of the loud motor mechanism that resulted in a constant train sound in the background of my video. This is my first review on Amazon but I felt compelled to express my disdain about the audio quality of this product.
