Summary: When This was purcahsed it said NEW.. When it was received it really does not seems new at all since it was in a generic box, with a manual that is dirty and the charger and other cables were simply on the side.
Summary: my old compact c cassett bit the dust after10 years after carefully shopping for the correct camera. found this one it works great with this model you need not to finalize only if you use the +rw format and you use at least or more than 15 min. love it.
