Even after 8 years it is a great purchase.

  • Summary: I bought this model almost 8 years ago. I have already a new one and it simply doesn't match my old DCRHC40 model. The Carl Zeiss lens gives great zoom definition at 10x and enhances the 120x digital zoom capabilities. I added a wide angle SONY conversion lense x0.6 and a NP-FP90 battery for extended operation. Simply one of the best cam-corders I've ever had, back from Beta, VHS and even compared to the new memory integrated HD one I have (Sony also).

did not come with the power cord needed to operate it without batteries.

  • Summary: This did not come with the power cord needed to operate it without batteries. Luckily this was a replacement, and I had the old power cord, which was included when I bought the original back in 2002. A separate shipment came with two batteries and a wall charger, but i still was wondering where my power cord is.

Wanted to keep my DCR-HC40 alive a bit longer!

  • Summary: This has been a great little camcorder. We bought this one to help with a problem in our original DCR-HC40. It has stopped charging the battery. Now that we have this one, It has been determined that the problem is in the camera not the battery or charger. The price and included parts make this a really good way to extend the life of a fairly dependable product from Sony. We have enjoyed the performance of this handy little device. Ebay has come through for us again!

Sony camera

  • Summary: We dropped our camera that we use for football and it broke into little peices. Saw this camera on Ebay and it was a perfect match. Works awesome and the price was right for our program, It will get many more years of use even though the mini-Dv is on its way out.

  • Summary: I thought it a great product. I had bought one 8 years ago and recently broke mine. When I went to find another camcorder with a tape I could no longer find one. I have many old tapes and needed this anyway! Besides it works great!!!
