For audio, the DCR-HC28 offers 12-Bit/16-Bit PCM digital stereo audio. If you're planning to play your video on a TV or if you are going to digitally transfer your videos on your computer/DVD, this Sony includes an industry standard AV port, and Firewire port (Sony iLink/IEEE 1394).

    Finally found someone that has these. I have so many old tapes and needed something to be able to put them on my computer.

    Price seemed high but I like the warranty. This was my favorite camera when the kids were younger - I think it is so much easier to use than that new stuff.

    Video Quality

    Posted by Jeannie Shackleford on May 21st 2018

    Video quality seems low for recording, but I am going to use this to transfer cassettes anyways so it doesn't matter.

    Nice camcorder for the price

    Posted by Arthur Knight on Jan 4th 2018

    I've always like the handycam line of camcorders. It is ashame they do not make these anymore. I like being able to record continuous video onto a single tape instead of having chapters like the new SD cards.

    Love the quality

    This easy to use camcorder packs a ton of quality. I really like it a lot. I'm glad I found it here because these are so hard to find anymore.
