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.
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

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.
