great product , had one since it was brand new, that's why i am buying more
13 July 2013
Summary: bought this product for parts for my unit I have had since it was brand new. however this unit works perfectly. don't have the heart to tear it apart. so I will buy batteries and a charger for it and put it in service. I like the zoom, must use tripod, and the sound quality. newer is not always better, but always more expensive. so I want my sony ccd-trv57, and jvc gr da30u cameras working for vacation. picture is not bad, sound is great.
Summary: The camcorder is very close to what I was looking for. Great description listed on ebay. However, the door for the tape does not open or shut properly most of the time. I cannot forward or rewind the tape. I can however record when I get the tape in, I just cannot review what I record due to not being able to rewind. The zoom works well while recording and hopefully it shows up well at review. battery seems to hold up well.
Summary: I hate the product i was very desapointed it doesn't work and look nothing like the picture .I bought it because i have the same camera that is not funtioning, and a lot of souvenires in the small tapes so i needed to tranfer thoses tapes to a video tapes unfortunatly the saler rfuse to take it back, and..... insult me!!!
Summary: Item is awesome & great for Day, Night or twilight filming. 20X optical & 360 Digital Zoom helps get all the shots without having to change your location all the time. Good battery life and easy transfer of movies. Plug directly into TV to view home movies.
Summary: Picture quality is good, loud & sensitive mono sound, easy and not too heavy (about 2 lbs with battery), not too big size for travelling (about 4.5 x 5 x 11 inches). STANDARD BATTERY that came with this camera works 2 hours for B&W viewfinder recording 50 minutes with color LCD recording. If you play black a lot on the LCD (I like to do that), this battery will last about 30 minutes, charging time is about 1 hour.
Summary: I just received this today and I'm very excited about this camera. It comes complete with bag (in primary colors), strap for camera, A/V cable, remote, batteries for remote, AC adaptor, and rechargable battery pack. Only thing you need to buy is the 8mm tape. Well worth the money considering you don't have to buy the extras. This camera will help make some memorable holiday moments last forever.
