Question about Cameras

Open Question

I have an old Daveco TR-05-A tripod I inherited. It was bought for use with an old 8mm Sony Handycam, but I would like to simply use it for a still camera. However, when I take the top assembly off, I cannot see the usual screw needed to sit the camera on top of, only a round ball-style pivot for the 8mm camcorder mechanism. Please advise.

SOURCE: Mounting camera on Fotomate Tripod

Try adding a flexible filler, such as cork or card stock, or a few buisness cards work as well at times. Cork and card stock are both avaible at a hobby store. Place the mounting bolt through the filler, and snug it up. it should fill the gap you have between the camera and plate. Also take care of the sloppyness of the screw. Good luck.

SOURCE: Screwing camera onto tripod quick release

Usually the camcorder has a hole next to the mounting screwhole. The plastic nub fit into the unthreaded hole, the mounting screw screws into the threaded hole. The nub is to help prevent the camcorder from rotating while you are using it on the tripod.

SOURCE: playback problem

Have the same problem.  This is what I have found in trying to solve the problem.  It appears that it is a tracking problem and it appears that either your new "used" camera has the problem or your original camera had the problem.  
A simple test would be to take another camcorder and see if the tapes play. If they do, and a recently recorded tape DOES NOT, you may just need to get another camera. Or, see if the camera can be re-tracked at a repair shop. However, be sure you have copies of your most recent tapes recorded with the bad tracking

SOURCE: Transfering 8mm video tapes to dvds

Hi there. You need to transfer your videos to your computer and then burn them to DVD using a program like Record Now, or Nero. You should be able to get this from Best Buy, or you can get it online from their websites. If you have any other questions, let me know with a comment. Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Does the sony handycam HDR XR520 camera have pass through facility to convert old 8mm/hi8 and VHS please?


Not many cameras will use all formats in them no, but once your movie is on your hard-drive of the PC you can copy the film to any other media.

Yes the good old DVD camera, you like millions of others get this problem with that model, it is looking like DVD disk cameras have a 84% break-down problem, we need to get Sony to start to make proper cameras that use 8mm tape again, it is a media which does work well.

Yes It Is Possible.
1. Cable options you can use S-video or RCA.
2. VHS payer that has a recording option. Make sure that it supports the Sony Handycam 8mm.
3. The procedure on how to transfer the 8mm to VHS is the same as how you view your video on the TV.
4. S-video or RCA should be connected on the Handycam and the other end is on the TV.

5. You can follow the instruction on page 27 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37)
6. You can also follow page 52 (Sony Handycam CCD-TRV37 )

No adaptor for 8mm tapes. You need to have Sony camcorder or video-8 player for playback these tapes.

Viewing SONY 8mm Tapes -- Please help


The older tapes were shot on a 8mm camcorder and the camcorder you have wil not play them becasue it doesn't have backwards compatability with the older format. The tapes you recorded are on a digital 8 camcorderr and it is different encoding than the one you recorded the other 60 tapes with. You will need to find either a dcr-trv 350 trv 530 trv 730 ect as these have the ability to play all the tapes.
Or find an older 8mm camcorder to play your tapes with.
Hope this helps
Cheers
