Summary: Still a great camera after all these years. Just the right editing capabilities. Really easy to use Likes: features: firewire/USB/fades/zoom/backward compatability of format/night vision/memory stik option Dislikes: Relatively bulky, upside-down tape access (time consuming when on a tripod) My...
Summary: I purchased this Camera so that I could convert my Hi-8 Tapes to a Digital format through my computer, and it does this job great. It also records well and has nice features that can be fun to play around with. Good buy
Summary: This is my third 730. The other two are still working. I use the cameras to film live music in niteclubs. Although not the newest technology these cameras are great workhorses. I use them handheld and they have been dropped-but they keep on ticking.
Summary: This camera is everything I expected when I successfully won the auction. It is a joy to use and functions as Sony advertizes. It has many more options than a new camera costing as much or more ie. i/o jacks for headphones and mic and the audio capabilities are great.
Summary: its a little bumped up for the price ,its a good deal, im happy my old one broke and ive have a stack of 8's to edit,and i bought a 90 doller trv40 to thrash as a stunt cam ,, oh yea smoke the humbolt, hold until u choke..420
Summary: This is a great camera from 1998-2000. I bought one and had almost a decade of great service - but finally it broke so I needed to buy another to save my old D8 tapes to DVD. It would not bother me to get a camera that did not have a batery, ac adapter, or whatever - I have all that stuff.
Summary: Good camera for the price. The features are good, takes excellent quality video and Digital 8 tapes are much cheaper than minidiscs. The one downside is having to buy a firewire card and cable if you've got a PC. Still, the ease of use is hard to beat.
Great camera for someone not used to expensive cameras

Summary: Used this for school and we are finding it works very well, so well, that our own high school is using this type of camera for all use of cameras for the school. Very reliable, high quality camera with easy to understand feautures and an easy way to film and to hold as well.
