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.
This product is disappeared from the market, be careful

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...
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.
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.
