Summary: Perfect as state condition. only problem is that he had left an adapter ring on it, which he forgot about and was stuck. i got it off. and camera works great evn for how high the hours are. fair price.
Summary: I can't believe they are asking $4790.00 for this cam. I bought mine 3 years ago(with xlr adaptor) for just under $2,000. Nice camera but not good in low light. I've ended up buying oncamera and off -camera lights. is the extreme price(what you would pay for an HD cam these days) because they don't make them anymore? Can't believe it. Because it is 1/4" 3CCD, the cam is kind of obsolete at this point.

Summary: I have had a Panasonic cam-corder for several years - a high end consumer model. (NV-MX8 / PAL) It had given me some technical faults during its life, but picture and sound quality were never in question. After a tiny JVC cam-corder that was my first Mini-DV based video camera, I swore never to get such a small unit again, so I was not interested in a pocket-sized unit at all.
Summary: A camcorder with features found only on more expensive models and resonably easy to operate by a beginner. The quality of the picture was very good and the zoom operated very smoothly. Overall I felt it was a product that was well thought out in design and well made.
Small, but sturdy - excellent low-light capability

Summary: This is a great camera for the wedding videographer or other serious amateur or semi-professional. It's well built, has great manual control, and takes super video including good low-light performance. You will probably want the external mic attachment, which lets you use professional microphones without additional adapters and signal processors. Now that the price is well below $2000, it's a great deal.
Summary: This is a superior camera for the money. Simple operation and well constructed. It has a "well built feel" to it and fits well in your hand. The detail of the image is awesome, better than I hoped for. I'm very impressed with the 16x zoom, very nice and clean image. Don't be fooled by the size of this camera, the quality of the image is beautiful. A lot of camera in a little package. It has 4 built in shooting settings for different situations.
