20 June 2012
Summary: I purchased this camera to convertsome old 8mm tapes to dvd but have decided to keep it after I am done as it has an awesome night vision for paranormal videotaping in complete darkness. Just a nice little camera to go along with my other more updated ones...
Summary: Sony Handy Cams are all high quality. Very well built and feature packed. Combine this with a USB adapter called Easy Cap, and you now have a HQ camera for your pc that captures video in High res .avi format.
Summary: Great camera! My uncle and grandma were stuck with a bunch of the tapes that you can only play in this kind of camera, but have not had a camera for quite some time! So we could not see our family memories.
Summary: The Sony Handycam is one of the best cameras that I've ever owned! It's very compact compared to older models and the quality of the recording is very good, but not as good as digital or even HD of course. The only thing that I wish that this camera had is USB connectivity. Other than that, it's a great little camcorder.
Summary: Let me start by saying how much I love my new camera, It's great I had been looking for quite awhile for a 8mm camera so I could play Old family tapes from when the kids were growing up.Nobody really sells them anymore and if they do they are very expensive. I even looked into renting one or renting a machine that plays the tapes but again it was way to much.
Summary: Good camcorder love the size and NightShot Infrared system , except it is missing SteadyShot Picture Stabilization. With out steadyshot the digital zoom is somewhat worthless. There is also a buzzing sound when its recording and comes out on the tape.
Summary: This is an absolutely wonderful camcorder. It is from a very reputable brand Sony which makes excellent products, this being one of them. You will not be disappointed with this camera, it captures your most precious memories with exceptional quality. You won't regret your purchase and you won't have to find a replacement for years to come unless of course you would like to upgrade to a newer model.
Summary: Ahhh, this is a fantastic prospect for a camera, I mean I have watched rookies practice with it and its just great, the best part I think is the whole way it works. let me explain the process, ahh you hold the thing up to ypur eye and point it towards the players and whatever you see, it captures on this little plastic thingy that holds iron oxide tape, its really something to see and then latter after you go home you hook it up to a tv set and watch the action again,...
