Summary: I received the Sony CCD-TRV328 camcorder and accessories within one week of my order. It works good. I played several 8mm tapes from the 1980's, showed them on TV and copied them to VHS cassettes. There is good video and audio. I like it.
Summary: Bought this tested for a day, the picture quality is awful. Recorded video had lots of grains in medium lights (even in a small room with 100 watts bulb), more yellowish even in bright (sun) light. Hoped the one I got might be bad, and exchanged for a new one. That was also the same quality.
Summary: I owned this camera for a long time and I absolutely loved it. I Don't know what that other guy with the bad review is talking about, saying this camera has grainy pictures. It is analog so the video is not as clear as digital, but for an analog camera the video is great.
Summary: When our 8mm stopped working that we had used for nine years, I found it overwhelming to research and find a new camera. I knew I didn't want digital because I don't even use my digital still camera very often, other than to e-mail pictures.
