Summary: Basic mini dv cam. Nothing special. I used this back in 06'. I'm sure it was more up to date then. It turned on, shot video and didn't give the usual sun-spots in the mini-DV tape. 3 stars. Good and reliable if you need a mini-dv with no frills.
Summary: I purchased this camcorder used, with nothing but a battery on its back. I had a 10 year old Canon ZR60 which went dead in the middle of recording and I needed to get video off some miniDV tapes and finish my project as inexpensively as possible.
