Summary: This used Sony Handycam was listed as "near new" condition. When I received it there were several major things wrong with it. The picture was broken up horizontally six ways so you couldn't get coherent picture. The audio sound was chopped up you couldn't understand what was being said.
Summary: I finally gave up on my old Video camera since I can't buy batteries for it any more, and bought this Handycam. (Comsumer Report liked it, I listen to them) It is easy to use and has nice pictures. Very good price too. I like Amazon, they deliver fast and have everything I could ever be needing.
Summary: For $300, THIS IS AWSOME! The + are: 20x zoom, USB connection, Effects, Titles, Lights, Small price, Nightshot plus, Stereo sound. The - are: Low lighting inside without all lights on, Low picture quality without computer editing. You can also play back video on your TV. Hope this review was usefull
Summary: I had several Digital8 tapes from years ago that I wanted to upload to my computer. I was able to get that done with this camcorder. However, my previous Sony Handycam also allowed me to view Hi8 tapes as well. This camcorder does not allow you to do that.
