Sony's last camcorder to use tapes & a firewire also uses a USB 2 if needed

paulfschmidt2012, Ebay
9 January 2014
  • Summary: This my second HDR-HC9. I bought it as a back up for my first one, which I've had for about a year. My first Sony HDR was a HDR-HC3, which, after about 9 years of great service, gave up and quit on me. The HDR-HC9 is very similar to operate as the HC3 but it is slightly smaller and has the unique feature of downloading to a computer with either a firewire ieee-1394 for the older computers or a USB2 for the newer computers, which no longer accept firewires.

Great camcorder,takes great video,fits comfortably in my hand.

  • Summary: I purchased this camcorder because I have the same model that needs repair and I wanted another because it is so dependable and easy to travel with, takes great video and decent photos with flash. It is small enough that it easily fits in my hand and I can carry it around all day when traveling and on the cruise ship also. It is top loading so is easy to change the tapes when mounted on a tripod.

  • Summary: This camera is everything I had hoped for. Compact, lightweight and takes great video. I needed something smaller than my Betacam rig to take to the jungles in Ecuador and this is perfect.

  • Summary: This camera is an awesome package for me. Has every conceivable connection for exporting and editing video to a variety of formats and records great audio as well. We are just getting acquainted with it, but so far it has exceeded our expectations.

Great Sony Quality

Bill Raddatz, Amazon
1 September 2010
  • Summary: I am producing a series of cooking shows for broadcast and internet distribution and decided on the HC9 because I wanted to shoot with the camera on a Merlin Steadicam so that I could shoot everything for each segment in one shot. Plus, I wanted the best HD image I could get in a small camera package. I couldn't be more pleased.

Specs Correction USB1.1 Not 2.0

William Brown "BillyRave", Amazon
23 November 2009
  • Summary: I'm on the verge of buying this camcorder after much research. It has most of the same features of my superb 10-year old Sony DCR-TRV10 mini-DV digital camcorder, with the addition of USB connectivity - but note that I've posted to Amazon two links to specs for this item (one directly from Sony Style) that state it's USB 1.1 not 2.0. Hardly a show-stopper but not irrelevant. (Go to [...

  • Summary: Great camera, this is my second one. I shoot underwater video and found this to be one of the best cameras. I use one in a housing and the other for land video and backup.
