  • Summary: I bought this so I can transfer my videos to my PC, everything works fine, except the fire-wire port, so I was unable to transfer my videos, don't know if it is the cable, my laptop or the port in the camera, other than that it is a good product.

Big surprise in a small package

  • Summary: This is the best easiest digital camera I've owned. In that it's easy to operate, small enough to handle well and it's weight is perfect. Easy digital conversion from tape to digital format directly into a usb port on my computer. It was recommended to me by a dear friend and worth it's weight! I can't find a single thing I dislike about it.

If you demand Superior Sound quality during Ultra High Volumes, Get This!

  • Summary: You can't beat these things. I owned one for 7 years and used it for my job, full time, all day every day. It finally konked out on me and I don't blame it. I bought 4 digital HD cameras to try to replace it, they were all horrible and I 100% honestly went back on Ebay and purchased a used one of these again because I know how great they are, they don't distort while recording EXTRA LOUD sources (Such as live bands) Crystal clear sound.

Great if you have a firewire port and cable.

  • Summary: I purchased this product to be able to save my movies onto a computer. Unfortunately, I didn't do enough research and even though this camera has a USB port on it you need a firewire to actually be able to transfer the videos to your computer. None of our computers (even the laptop purchased within the last month) come with a firewire port and so that and the cable are an extra $50+ expense. We'll probably resell the camera and purchase something different.

Simple, great quality, and fairly easy to use.

  • Summary: This is a great camera. The overall quality is great for a small and simple Handycam. The only thing I wasn't satisfied with was the LCD touch screen. It responds to touch perfectly fine but it goes from normal color to blue a lot. In other words it flickers between normal and blue.

  • Summary: Now out of date since everything is digital hard drive. But it has great video quality. I bought this one since my first one broke after 7 or 8 years and I need to convert the tapes to a HD.

problem with viewing old tapes

shakticat, Ebay
2 January 2011
  • Summary: I recently found out that using old, recorded tapes and viewing them and downloading them on different Sony models of mini DV Camcorders is a problem. The tapes don't run correctly and the sound and picture is distorted. So be careful and replace your old Sony camcorder with the same, exact model or will have problems with your old, recorded tapes. You can call Sony technicians and verify this.

Wonderful product!

  • Summary: I think that this is one of the most amazing cameras in the world. It's lightweight and compact, so it can fit along with a tripod and other camera equipment nice and snug into the camera case. Came quite in handy when I took it out for a test run to my friend's baby shower last weekend. Awesome!!!
