Very Compact, no issues with playback, transfer

Nick, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera to transfer old MiniDV tapes to PC and for the great price. I didn't notice the complaints from a few reviewers saying that the camera had playback issues on their tapes. Well, I've tried the camera and tested several tapes so far and no problems with playback on the viewfinder or while transferring to PC.

  • Summary: This was a used camcorder that I got so was not expecting for it to be perfect but firstly it did not have the power cord and second the camcorder tape reader voice boradcast is faulty...sound it just a big screeeetch! This items was advertised as "like new" so was hoping that it would at least work...it chewed one of my tapes and I cannot even get the tape out since I do not have the power cord and the battery is out.

  • Summary: I like this camera, easy to use and very light, video is crisp when played back and audio is good. The digital stills are 7 second clips that give good detail during playback. Remote is handy to get yourself in the action.

A disposable camera...

Luis Martino A "cygnus", Amazon
20 April 2011
  • Summary: This is a disposable camera. After having it for more than a year, I can say the following: a) Autofocus is bad. It tends to lose the focus of the subject very easily. You can control the focus manually, but that is a hassle. Every time the camera loses focus, the quickest way to restore it is to zoom a little, then pan out. b) Batery life was dreadful. When new, the battery allows for more than 70 minutes of shooting.

Do not buy this if you want to connect to a PC

hurtsdonut, Amazon
16 February 2011
  • Summary: Like other DV camcorders, this can only connect using a 1394 port. Even if your PC has one (most don't), you need a add-on video capture card. And even if you have that (and get it to work) you have about a 50/50 chance of this working. Good little camera if you only intend to watch your movies on a TV. Not worth the head aches of trying to get it on a PC. Many have tried, few have succeeded.

Decent for what it is

Verc, Amazon
19 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camera independently for about $60. It's not all that bad for an older camcorder. The picture is decent. It's a good camera to have around for random things, nothing on a professional level though. I wouldn't value it at more than $100 max for it.

good camcorder

Jim Lively, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I bought this a couple of years ago and have used it like crazy to capture my young daughter's escapades like softball, cheerleading, Xmases, b'days, and concerts. The sound is okay and the picture is very nice, even indoors. The cost was very reasonable. I recently bought a Samsung hi-def to replace this one because it is starting to slow down. The auto-focus is going and the picture is becoming milky at times.
