    Have these left over from my business partner father, he sadly passed away a couple of years ago and these have just been sat around. Anyone know if they are still of any use/value?

    Sony handycam pro CCD-V90E

    Sony handycam DCR-TRV130E

    They look a bit old school[emoji23][emoji23]

    Cheers

    If they are in working-condition right now ( having charged the batteries, etc.) - then transfer any films onto a computer hard drive for posterity.
    + You may not get the chance later on.
    Today these older models are not very useful, either for film-making or as props - possible of interest to someone that needs one to replay their own media - but they won't pay much for them, as they are on "Borrowed-time".

    Unlike Sewing machines, typewriters ( and even wind-up gramophones ) the modern consumer stuff is more than likely to not work. It may be difficult to get replacement batteries, the internals may not work ( capacitors can fail if kit is not used ) - and existing batteries don't like being left to discharge.

    Maybe you could think of buying something new and start recording yr life's interests, etc.?

    Good luck
