It had been a long time since I owned an 8mm camcorder and I can remember the one I owned by Sony was larger than the DCR-TRV460. This is such a nice size and fits quite well in your hand. I bought mine here on eBay from e-zdigital and it was in excellent condition. I'm so glad I waited to find the perfect Sony Camcorder and an eBayer that had the knowledge to answer my questions. I found one that came with a nice case, NP-QM71D Battery, all the paperwork, all the cables (A/V, USB, and i.Link) Handycam Software CD, charger, shoulder strap, remote, lens cover and even a extra tape. This was so much nicer buying every thing all at once and this way I was ready to start taping when I received it. It's easy to transfer video's to your computer or VCR and easy to hook up to your TV. It takes great videos and the color and clarity is pretty good. Not very turned on about the single pictures it takes. I took a few and if I didn't have my digital camera with me I guess I would use it. The pictures were a little too grainy for me. I have not used the Nightshot Plus but I've heard nothing but good comments on it. I like the large 2.5" touch screen. It's so easy to use and so is the menu. I like this little guy so much that I have bought filters, a wide angle and telephoto lens for it. I'm happy with this Sony and would advise anyone who is interest in a good 8mm Camcorder to take a closer look at the Sony DCR-TRV460. Another nice thing to know that there are still some decent 8mm tapes out there at a fair price. Excellent product and well built. I like mine.
I'm using the camera to transfer old 8mm tapes into my PC. The firewire works perfectly into Windows 7 64 bit. Great camera! Night shot is cool 2!
I bought my first one of these several years ago. Recorded the kids growing up, and it was always a temperamental beast. A few years ago it gave up.
The nice thing about the camera was that you could export tapes directly to AVI via IEEE 1394 (and older 8mm tapes too).
I bought this one to do just that, import to AVI. With that project done I'll be putting both on eBay for the next person.
I bought this camcorder because it's the only one I've ever found that has a built in Analog to Digital converter. I was so disappointed when Sony discontinued that feature. Now you have to buy a separate unit if you want to go analog (VHS) to digital (pc). I've got 2 of these cameras specifically for that purpose. And for converting 8mm.
The TRV460 and TRV480 are the best camcorders to either record new Digital 8 video, or to convert your old Hi-8 or Video8 footage to DVD. Sad to Sony discontinue this line in favor of camcorders that fit on your pickie finger.
