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. Thanks for helping to preserve history.
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. Although it didn't specify, it came with alot of extra stuff such as an extended battery, extra cables, camera bag, and even came with the original receipt of the items purchased years ago.
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.
Summary: We ordered this camcorder because our old one was failing. We know the Sony name is very good in electronics so we decided to try this one. It arrived exactly as the seller said it would. It had all the accessories and was in very good condition. Very happy with this purchase.
Summary: This camcorder is easy to use right out of the box. It has Sony's famous nightspot system, that allows you to record even with 0 lux, and makes great recordings with really good audio. This is a great camcorder for anyone.
Summary: This unit was sold with a known defect at a reduced cost. The defect would have been a major concern for most users in that the owner indicated that the unit would no longer record but it could play miniDVD movies just fine. I needed a camcorder to only PLAY miniDVD tapes so I could convert the tapes over to DVDs. Hence, this unit for the cost was a perfect fit for my requirements.
