Summary: Hi, It's an old fashion cam-corder, needed only to convert tapes to pc format or dvds. It was hit back in 2002 Product worked well, I just didn't realise it was for PAL system. We connected it via dvd recorder and converted the format to get video signal for PC. No problems. Thanks guys.
Summary: This Digital8 camcorder works well for transfering old Digial8 video to a PC for archiving or editing.For recording new video it has the advantage of having a VF for more precise shooting than using the LCD Screen. Another nice feature is the battery pack for using AA batteries as a back-up power source. Its size and weight takes a while to get comfortable with as compared to newer models. I would buy this product if I preferred using Digital8 format.
Summary: I love the top loading feature. Otherwise I found it a mediocre camera with poor playback and off center optics. This camera was a replacement for one that was grossly defective. This seller bent over backwards to do right by me and I am most grateful for that.
Summary: The sony Handycam works well. For what I purchased the item for, I think that I have a great product. I love how the camera has many feature like Nightshot and a LCD screen! It is very difficult to say that this camera is not worth buying because everything, so far, works great. I highly recomend this camera for any first time user since the handycam is very easy to use!
Summary: it's workhorse. Working as a new, no issues whatsoever.I needed to transfer many Digital 8 tapes to DVD and used this camera as a player. It has firewire output so quality is as good as you see on your digital 8 tapes. In case of emergency I can still use it to record pretty high quality videos.
Summary: The Sony DCR-TRV140 is an awesome video camera with excellent features for the average movie maker. Although it has somewhat intimidating components, navigating the options is moderate until you become used to what you want from it. Beware of the flashing warnings, one in particular – the C:31:23 which represents a unit malfunction. Sony lists it as moisture build up in their manual which can be true, but it is also a standard warning if moisture is not the problem.
Summary: I bought the used Sony DCR - TRV140 Digital 8 camcorder everything works PERFECTLY...looks brand new, MINT CONDITION SONY DCR TRV140 Digital 8 camcorder with Multicompartment Bag, Remote, New Battery, Belkin FIRE WIRE Cable, Charger, 2 Fuji HI-8 Tapes included.
