Summary: I'm very impressed with the camcoder. It's like a new one I had before that I couldent get repaired. I had several lens. memory sticks & recorded tapes I can now use with this one. Thanks again, Elbert
Sony DCR - TRV740 perfect for digitizing your 8mm tapes
7 October 2010
Summary: The 8mm format is dead. So is pretty much all tape-based consumer grade video. Your only chance to save those videos is to get them on disk. Here's the problem: 8mm cameras are no longer available.
Summary: My husband loves the camera. It works great. My husband had a camera just like this one for many years. His camera wasn't working just right, so we went on e-bay and found several, and got the bid on this camera. He has been very happy with the camera.
Summary: I bought this camera for filming some deer hunting videos. I like the fact we can plug in our wireless microphones and use our headphones for monitoring voice. The camera I bought did have the slap C code on it. Turns out the roller had fallen off.
Summary: I purchased a 2G SD card to store more pics that the one that came with it. I put in the card and kept getting a "card reader error". The store indicated that the cam cannot handle the additional memory for storing pics.
