Summary: This is my second camera. We use it in a ballroom dance studio to record lessons for our students. Very good quality picture and sound. Easy to use and compatible with DVD players. Needed a second camera because we sometimes have two students on floor at same time and sometimes one of us is on the road coaching and needed a studio camera.
Summary: I used to have a DVD200 that was lost over the years and had several family memories on discs that had not been finalized. I was able to do so, within minutes of receiving my new camera. It also, had the added bonus of a wide-angle converter that wasn't factory original attached and it makes a HUGE difference when filming in small rooms!
Summary: I have owned one of these before and it was a great camcorder to use. One day I was tying my camcorder to a tree branch to get a good camera shot. I had done this before so I was not very worried. All of a sudden the rope had broke and my camcorder smashed onto the pavement. It had then rolled and bounced a few times more. I had picked it up and looked at it. The camcorder looked like nothing had been damaged at all.
