I purchased this camcorder for paranormal investigations and to play back on the TV my old 8mm cassette videos I had from the 90's since the original 8mm Samsung camcorder died. The night vision works well but with an external infrared light mounted to the camera made it work very well with good quality for distant shots. An external infrared light is inexpensive and worth it. I was lucky to use this camcorder for a ghost investigation at Miss Carolines Bed and Breakfast in St Augustine FL. It worked fantastic. I purchased this on eBay and got one that was in mint condition, I was so excited.
It is however standard definition and mono audio. I have not tried to upload to PC yet but I'm sure there is an adapter to convert RCA to USB or serial. It may be or not possible to upload to PC.
I ordered this camera for my Ghost Hunting hobbie to shoot in low light. While it does work for that, the first time I used it it kept shutting off and the batteries went dead within a half hour or so. Could it be paranormal? Now I have to test it at home to see if that really was the problem or not. Also, I would like to be able to convert my 8mm tapes onto a memory stick or my computer as the manual says that is not possible. Anyone can help me out? Mabie I am doing something wrong....Other than that, I am very happy with the product I received
This has been one of the best cameras I've ever used. Its very simple, it has all the features I use like zoom, back light, night vision and the battery on it lasts as long as the film. Also the rewind and playback are great and the sound is real clear when you do playback. My son had one similar that I had gotten him and I liked his so much that I got one for myself. I would recommend this camera to anyone and since I've told my mother how easy it is to use, she wants to get one for herself. And the price was very reasonable. I'm very happy with this item.
I’m very happy for this purchase. The camera works great, is light weight and
very good in low light areas. Battery lasts almost two hours and maybe I consider upgrade with longer life battery.
This Camcorder is very good for general use, especially for family events.
The most important thing is, this camera is very easy to operate.
this Camcorder is Reliable, Rugged, and will work well in Low-Light environments. The TRV 318 is an Excellent way to Videotape in all Light environments, and is an affordable way to enter the Digital Video world. We use 8 TRV-318's in outdoor Environments conducting Research, and we have found if you keep the VCR portion Clean, it will give you trouble-free Service.
