Summary: I bought this used camera and have used it few times. The camera has few minor scratches but is working fine for now. I think it was a good buy for the price I paid. The only thing that I would have loved was if it came with carrying bag. Overall decent buy!!
Summary: I have been looking for an "older" mini-dv type camcorder for sometime now. It appears through some research that these type of camcorders with the firewire output are the only ones that can be used to stream live video for use as a webcam. This little Sony does the trick.
Summary: This handy, excellent camcorder can handle most of the work done by armature, even polished recorders. The size is perfect, even sexy. You can easily slide it into a small bag or pocketbook and you are good to go. It uses mini cassettes, which can be easy to carry.
Summary: This sony camera is a nice, but exspensive, camera. It has an easy touch pad, along with an 800x digital zoom. This camera also has a quick battery charger that can charge the battery much faster that an anolog camera.
Summary: I ordered this camcorder directly from Amazon with 1-day shipping. My package did not arrive on the promised day. The next day I checked the DSL tracking and found that the package was marked as delivered.
Summary: The machine works fine. If you buy the firewire cable (e.g., Sony VMC-IL4615 1.5 Meter i.LINK 4-Pin to 6-Pin Digital Video Transfer Cable) you can actually download the movies to a computer (as another reviewer pointed out).
