Great video camera - love it!

  • Summary: I bought it used because I wanted to film the birth of my niece. It has worked great every since and takes stills that are great for slideshows, as well as high quality video. I can transfer the videos to VHS or DVDs simply. The bells and whistles on this model are great, couldn't ask for better. Pros: lightweight, easy to use, VCR playback, tilting color screen, still photos, long battery life Cons: None yet!

Great camcorder. Discontinued

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder in 2000. The price was great at $500. It was a sale to get rid of the 900s before the newer series came out. The camera is basic. The eyepiece doesn't swivel. Which doesn't matter. I usually use the lcd, which drains the battery faster. The screen is 2.5" small but in color. All in all it is a good camcorder. Like the other reviewer, be careful. This camcorder is discontinued so the price has been jacked up.

  • Summary: Good cheap cam with nice features... Has firewire IEEE1934 interface to interact with the PC. Still shot capability holds up to 700 mid-quality images. The problem is that the product is not even listed in the Panasonics site oficially, it's been missing between DV800 and DV950 models ( and 910 misses too ). But actually the info exists in the site when you edit the http address and replace the "950" with the "900".

Great Camera

  • Summary: There are many different dv camcorders out there for all kinds of budgets. My budget was no too large for my dv purchase, so I shopped around and found the panasonic. I had read both positive and some luke warm reviews of the pv-dv900, but decided to go for it. I am so glad that i did. I am not a videophile, but the picture and sound i get out of this camera are amazing. It is still better than my old vhs-c camcorder after I dub onto VHS. It is awesome.

Very good budget DV camcorder

  • Summary: The Panasonic pv-dv900 is a very basic DV camcorder. It uses the mini-dv cassette which is supported by many and is probably better in the long run than Sony's Digital 8 which uses standard 8mm for Digital 8 recorders. The picture quality on the Panasonic pv-dv900 is very good. When I first purchased this camera, I tried it out using a JVC mini dv tape and the picture quality really looked bad, then somehow like overnight, it cleared itself up.
