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.

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.

USB streaming / Firewire

Evan, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera works just fine; and despite having a few too many bells and whistles for my taste, the picture is as good as my trusty eight year old Sony camcorder that died last summer. BUT!!!... Be aware that the USB streaming capability that is touted as a selling point is absolutely useless.

Great camera, but watch out for hidden costs

World Traveler, Amazon

  • Summary: I wanted to give this camera Five Stars because it is splendid, but there are hidden costs associated with this camera that I was dissapointed to find out about, so it is only getting 4 stars. Read on to learn more. The camera itself is fine.

Un appareil vidéo polyvalent

3 January 2008
  • Summary: J'ai acheté ce camescope car il était livré avec la carte d'acquisition PC et je dois dire que je n'ai pas été déçu par ses prestations. Par contre, il faut bien préciser que la fonction photo sur memory stick n'est pas disponible sur ce modèle(à partir du TRV340).D'autre part, la notice d'emploi...
  • Pros: peu onnéreux
  • Cons: disproportionné pour les standarts actuels

Preiswert und Digital zugleich

kaschperl, Ciao

  • Excerpt: Mit dieser Videokamera bin ich sehr zufrieden. Durch ihre ansprechende Optik im Sonydesign und ihre relativ geringe Größe ist sie mir auf den ersten Blick sehr wohl in Erscheinung getreten.
  • Pros: 700fach Zoom, DV - In und DV - Out, .  .  .
  • Cons: fummeliger Zoomschiebeschalter, relativ hohes Eigengeräusch
