Summary: This was a purchase for my 9 year old son. This product is way more than I expected. I've owned Sony's in the past that survived toddlers and the sands of Afghanistan. The night shot was the most sought out feature along with size and both are perfect, easy to use and easy to hold.
Summary: Prompt service good condition as described, Only drawback is that it plays only one brand cassettes. It does not playback sony brand.......don't know what is wrong. I have loads of sony pre-recorded memories.....the prime reason why I had to buy the older model of camcorder.
Summary: While updating the historical files for our church, we found a presentation that was recorded with this older model camcorder. No one had the equipment to transfer the tapes to a disc so we found this item at a great price. It solved the problem and is still being used.
You can't go wrong with a Sony, they are very durable.

Summary: I recently broke my Sony miniDV camcorder, so I decided to purchase another one. I tried the malls, but found the prices to be very high. So I decided to purchase a used one here on Amazon, and found my same exact camera model on sale here. I didn't waste a minute in ordering it.
Summary: I bought this camcorder because mine will not quit ejecting and I want to transfer about 20 tapes to DVD. The camcorder is working far better than I expected. This was a great buy for the money. Now I have 2 camcorders, charging unit, 3 batteries, strap, case and about 20 tapes.
