This camera is worth reliving again!
I bought one of these new in 2003 and use it for my Architectural Profession. Having a viewfinder is invaluable for me since shooting outdoors with a screen is so inefficient, however, having a viewfinder that both extends and focuses to your vision is the best and this camera has it. The only shortcoming is no earphone jack to really get the playback info loud and clear. I suspect that I may be able to rig one from one of the lead-out cables in front but never invested the time to experiment. I just bought another one only because my tape carrier mechanism is just about inoperable. Get a nice wide angle screw on lens, make sure you get a remote control , all the patch and power cords, and at least two batteries---one being the genuine Sony brand fat NP-QM71D, and, a good combo house current/car current charger. This camera shoots at digital quality or any other lesser setting and speed. The controls are all based on human hand sizing, not micro-alien phalanges. Ten Thumbs Up all the way!!! If Sony would make these nice substantial cameras with only a high capacity card slot and all the existing features plus earphone jack, I'd get it next.Read full review

Very Nice 8mm Sony Handycam DCR-TRV460
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.Read full review

AV DV built in!!!
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.

Old tapes to convert - great. Recording? Get something with SD Cards.
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.

Worked as hoped, can now save my precious childhood tapes!
Received the Cam in a timely fashion, and it worked as hoped. I had a Sony Cam I bought in '99 when my oldest was born and used it through 5 kids.. Well the Cam broke years ago and now i want to copy my tapes to my PC. Bought a cam last year, but it didn't play the tapes at the same recording speed, so the video played too fast. This one works just as good if not better than the original cam I had.
