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: 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: 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'm a Pro Videographer - so I have used every format of camera made - this one is Not a bad little cam - it's not as nice as say, a TRV-900/950, but for about $150 used, it will give you D8, if you for some reason wanted to use 8mm tape. It's a great cam to take to the beach, cuz if you ruin it, it's not a huge deal - and they are cheap enough in good shape to just get another one - the downside is that D8 is a dead format, and MiniDV is even starting to show it's age...
Summary: I BELIEVE THIS CAMCORDER IS, IN RESUMED WORDS PURE AFFORDABLE QUALITY. EXCELLENT VIDEO QUALITY NOT TO MENTION A GREAT DEAL FEATURES, FROM THE VIDEO LIGHT TO THE TITLE CAPABILITY, ETC. AWESOME PRODUCT!
