Great Condition, Fast Delivery, Works Perfect!!

  • Summary: I received this all the way from Alaska in 2 or 3 days. Fantastic. Keep in mind with my review that this camera is Obsolete. It is standard definition in an HD world. However, I needed it to put Video-8, High-8, and Digital-8 tapes on DVD and it is perfect for that. It also looked brand new, not a scratch on it.

  • Summary: The Handycam works just like I wanted it to. I realy needed it to play back old 8mm's I hade from years ago when my boys were young and into sports. Have used it very little at this point but hope to use a lot more this summer when sailing. I'm sure it will perform well.

Defective, but seller made allowances.

  • Summary: Having owned the exact handycam and using it for many years, it finally quit working. I decided to check ebay for one, and knowing the original price, I decided to place a bid. After placing a second bid, I got it at a very low price. After receiving it, I found it had some glitches, but for the purchasing price, I can have it repaired and still come out ahead.

  • Summary: This is a great little camcorder. It is great for video tranfer to DVD because we can play 8mm, Hi-8, and Digital 8 tapes from it. It has the S-Video out port so we can send out at Y/C resolution insteaad of just composite. It fits perfectly in my hand, is easy to use, and has great Nightshot capability. Thanks Sony for a great product.

It was a great buy

  • Summary: I bought it primarily because I have a bunch of 8mm tapes that I couldn't watch, because my old camcorder died. With this camcorder I was able to transfer all of these tapes to DVD's. it worked great.

If you're ok with it's quirks, this will serve well for <= $100 used.

  • Summary: I originally bought this for the purpose of digitizing old Video8 and Hi8 tapes. I have not done a complete comparison to see if there is a difference in picture quality from using an analogue capture card with a beat up camera and this unit. If the tape was messed up or the recording is bad, most playback devices won't be able to help and it'll probably need to be cleaned up in software after digitization.

  • Summary: This is a great little camcorder. It is great for video tranfer to DVD because we can play 8mm, Hi-8, and Digital 8 tapes from it. It has the S-Video out port so we can send out at Y/C resolution insteaad of just composite. We had purchased this same model in the past and we wanted to acquire duplicate camcorders in order to process our video to DVD transfer services. Thanks Sony for a great product. J.H.

Great Camera

sassylove3, Ebay

  • Summary: It was even better than I thought it would be. We took it on a trip with us and it was so much easier to use than our digital camera! We bought it so we can actually have live footage of our kids before they were all grown up.
