Summary: Ordinarily, this is a good camcorder but this particular one was defective and non-working, I've always owned a sony the shipper just didn't care to check it out to know if it really worked. and I just lost money and because he didn't offer me a refund.
Summary: Product was exactly as described and at a great price! The package was very protected ! I've been looking for this type of camcorder and could not find it until I came along to this seller. I would deff. buy from again! I'm so happy to be able to watch my tapes !
Summary: I used this camcorder(my camera was different and broken) to import old 8m tapes to my computer and make dvd's. I was going to order another more expensive but this seller advised me it wouldnt work for what I wanted it to do and this one would be better and cheaper.
Summary: I bought this camera in Summer of 1999, when raising roof on my house. I loved the idea of the Digital8 feature. The Camera had functioned well for me until early 2008. Then when I knew it was time to convert my 50 or more 8mm tapes over to DVD, I started getting these moisture warnings.
Summary: I ordered this camera because I already owned one which needed repair. I could not find anywhere that would repair it. I have many movies of cherished events from years past that I wanted to be able to edit for my children and grandchildren.
Summary: * * * * * I M P O R T A N T * * * * * Ignore the bashing of this camera for CCD problems (with a reference to CNET forums). This camera is NOT one of the models affected by CCD's manufactured between OCTOBER 2002 and MARCH 2004.
Another FORMER Sony customer...BLACK SCREEN of death
27 May 2005
Summary: I bought Sony camcorder last year. It has stopped recording video. I can't see anything in the viewfinder or screen. Absolutely nothing. On the flip side, it did work nicely for the year when it was working though.
Summary: I purchases the Sony DCR-TRV103 Handycam just after my first son was born, and just after my VHS camcorder died. I have used this camera extensively over the last 7 years, never have had a problem, until recently. I have filmed several hundred hours worth of videos with great results.
