This is a camera released two years after Sony introduced its Video8 tape to replace the previous Betamax system and take advantage of JVC and its VHS system. The reduced size of the tape with respect to its predecessor and its competitor allowed to begin to reduce the size of the cameras giving rise to the name Handycam.

This camera, although it incorporates a good quality microphone, offers the possibility of connecting an external microphone to achieve better results and a hearing aid that allows monitoring the sound of the recording.

The camera offers many possibilities to achieve videos of very good quality in both natural light and artificial light conditions. For example, the electronic viewfinder can be disconnected giving space to the connection of a larger external monitor.

The camera that we present here corresponds to the model marketed in Japan.
