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!!!

  • Summary: These cameras should be perfect for my purposes, one of the only types of camera with night vision, which will be perfect for filming in darklight conditions, which I will be using them for. Great Stuff!

A plus

  • Summary: My first Sony DCR hc40 was stolen and I purchased the same model again. I use it for taping golfers and bowling students. I find this model so easy to understand and use; the quality upon playback is great and it exceeded my expectaions when used in low light surroundings.

Handy Cam purchased does not work properly

santa_dasu, Ebay
1 June 2009
  • Summary: I purchased a sony handycam, here are the issues - Main reason for purchsing this camera was to upload videos thru firewire. I wasted atleast 30 hours debugging why this product is not recognized by computer when connected via firewire port. It still does not work. I tried multiple computers, multiple cables and Windows XP, Vista and Mac with no luck. The same model number that I purchased 3 years ago works. I checked the menu settings menu by menu.
