Summary: I bought this camera brand new and only used maybe 5 times and the finalizing of the cds wont work. I tried to get it fixed and of course $225 needs to be up front. Really for that much just buy a new one.
Summary: I admit this isn't what I'd get if I was buying new, but recently I got this at a yard sale for diiiirt cheap, and it works great. My previous camcorder was tape, so for me this DVD cam was an upgrade. It's fairly easy to use.
Summary: I was shopping for an affordable camcorder and really lucked out by winning this auction. I was able to print an owner's manual online and took it to n event that I easily filmed just days after receiving.
Summary: Do not buy this - time has passed this by. It's cheap, because you can do so much more now than you could in 2006. You simply cannot manipulate the videos you take on this - no USB connection to upload to a computer, no software to make changes if you could. Get a miniDV or something more modern.
Summary: THIS WAS A XMAS GIFT FOR MY SON IT WAS A GREAT SIZE FOR HIM TO BE ABLE TO STORE AND TAKE CARE OF! IT WORKS GREAT AND RECORDS RIGHT TO DVD (NOT THOSE GAUDY VCR OR MINI CASSETTES ETC) IT IS,ALSO GREAT FOR STORAGE AND OF COURSE THE PRICE WAS QUITE REASONABLE AS WELL AS A SMALL FRACTION OF WHAT IT WOULD...
Summary: Love the size of this camera. It is a little tuff trying to figure out how to use it. DVD-RW will not work in this camera, and the instructions do not state this. The mini DVDs to fit this camera are very hard to find, and buy.
Summary: nice camera very good. recommend for international Bayer's too i am one of them. every thing work fine. but this hasn't the PC connection. so only play the records with the TV. this is a problem.
