Not bad, not the best. Today, you'll need a converter to edit it on a PC or Laptop
21 November 2013
Summary: I've owned this since it 1st came out in 2000 or so. Obviously it doesn't compare to today's technology, but if you buy an adapter to convert your tape to digital format on your PC or Laptop today, it's not to bad at all, even at the end of 2013. Maybe I'm biased since I've had it a long time & have been converting it to digital format for several years now (& dont have to buy a new camcorder) but I really do like it considering what I use it for now.
Summary: item was as advertised very good condition and worked very well, arrived quickly as promised had a similar camera which broke and could not find anyone to repair and this is about the only way to play all the tapes made before
Summary: I bought a display model at target years ago of this camera and then it brought a few months ago. When I bought my PC I got one that had a Firewire port just for this camera! Lasted along time.
I use the Camera for Rail fanning in North East and it does very well.

Summary: The product was Identical to one it replace. Item function very well and so far no problems with it! The picture quality was excellent and ease of use was fantastic. Battery life seems to be what is expected with present size of battery. Value for money was right on since replacement part plus shipping would have been about the same as the replacement camera. I would give the camera a five star rating as a used product!
Summary: Wow, I can't believe theis camera is still offered. I came on Amazon to look for a new battery charger for mine. I purchased mine new from Circuit City in June of 2001 to take on my honeymoon cruise. It has performed flawlessly over the past 9 years, recording the birth of all three of my kids as well as countless birthdays, Christmas mornings, and school programs. The only drawback to this camera is the size. In the age of tiny cameras, this thing seems like a beast.
Summary: This may be an older camcorder, but it is pretty good for users who aren't interested in speculative HD recording or who do not have money in their budget for something better. Having never used high-end video equipment, I have no frame of reference by which to judge the quality of the Sony's features. I can only say that it serves my needs fairly well with a couple of small flaws. But first, the good. First, the picture quality is fine.
Summary: I like it because the price was appropriate for the product. I Needed a digital camcorder because mine broke, but I did not want to spend a ton getting a top of the line product. I probably will upgrade to something other than 8mm the next time, so price was key. Only problem, is I don't think it plays non-digital tapes.
