Sony DCR - TRV740 perfect for digitizing your 8mm tapes

cyphercube, Ebay
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.

Nice 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: This is an excellent camera, however, anyone spending more than $200 dollars for one is wasting their money for some very old technology. Buy one, if you can, but do not spend too much money.

Only good intermediary for Hi-8 tapes into Digital 8

  • Summary: I bought the Sony video camera recorder, DCR TRV740 as a backup and replacement for my old TRV740. It is a good digital 8 camera that uses Hi-8 tapes. Its dual purpose of converting/transferring hi-8 material to computers for editing is great.

  • Summary: I am using this camera with a Sony helmet camera and it works excellently for this purpose. Excellent picture, good stability and excellent audio and video inputs. Good battery life and very rugged platform. Only problem is that it is a heavy camera compared to some of the newer ones.

Have Older Analog Tapes?

ibolt, Ebay
24 December 2005
  • Summary: Sony Handycam DCR TRV740 Features • Records on Hi-8 Tape, not Mini DV-Tape • Records in Digital format – (Digital8) • A 120 minute Hi-8 tape will record 60 minutes of digital video. The higher requirements of digital video are laid down on the Hi-8 tape at twice the speed of analog video.

Good VFM

  • Summary: This camera is excellent for capturing Videos, the Still Picture quality is good if you are outdoors, for shooting still pics indoors & especially during night-time, you must have a very bright Light Source or a very brightly illuminated room.

  • Summary: i have had this product for 4 months and love the unit. Pro's: 1. portable, small for the price 2. Mega pixel is nice option but you may need a separate camera if you are a stickler, but more than adequate for general pics 3. reversable swivel screen for viewing from any angle 4.

Wonderful Camera

Amazon
17 January 2003
  • Summary: We bought this camera before Christmas to replace an 8 year old VHS-C. We were very pleased with the features. It is not a High-End camera, but definetly for the price we paid, we could not have gotten anything close.

Great Camera

  • Summary: I bought a Sony DCR TRV740 this summer and have been very pleased with it. It was my second D8 camcorder and is a nice step up from the DCR TR7000 it replaced. I used the still photo function recently at a boat race and was more than pleased with the results.
