Outdated Crap

  • Summary: You know, there is still a market for film cameras, bringing a sort of character novelty now with the digital revolution, but there are some cameras better left in the past, if you know what i mean. We have a bunch of these in the video cage at my art college, and they suck. I paid less for my T2i and it gets much better video, and its only a prosumer DSLR, this is supposed to be a professional grade camcorder.

Workhorse no longer made, sad passing

Charles H. Harpole "Charly", Amazon
28 November 2010
  • Summary: Here we record the sad passing of the PD-100 series of SONY grab-n-go solid video cameras. The PD-170 is discontinued, sadly, lackiing the glitzy features of HD, chip recording, etc. Its single HD replacement model has not shaken out, yet, but when it is proven (if ever) THAT will be the video camera of choice for bottom end of pro video cameras because it will have all of the PD-170 ruggedness, great optics, flexibility of audio, clean recording ONTO REAL STUFF..

Used, Out of Production, Still a Work Horse

  • Summary: A Great camera for low light videoing to MiniDV tapes. A private investigators favorite it can permanently burn in the date and time stamp onto the tape so transfers can be done in any format and keep the stamp. It has a 1 LUX rating and has lived up to it with me. If you are under dim street lighting I can video you @ 30fps. It's not wide screen but who cares in court. Cinimatographers can crop it to 16:9 but........ If your a PI get one while you can!

Sony PD-170 review

ilook2u, Ebay
1 June 2010
  • Summary: I purchased this camera and I am amazed at it low-light capabilities. I currently shoot with a Canon XH-A1 and I have found the PD-170 to be more useful because of it's ability to turn a low light environment into a useful video. The PD 170 is standard definition and has an amazing picture. I am very happy with this camera. I should have bought two of these for the price of one XH-A1. Most people I work with just want a standard definition DVD anyway!
