  • Summary: Well... Outside of not being HD.. This is just about the best professional DVcam ever produced. I chose to track down the Sony PD 170 cam because this is the exact model we used to use at out old Public Access TV station in Asheville,NC.

Outdated Crap

Ben, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • 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.

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.

Used, Out of Production, Still a Work Horse

10101bud, Ebay
4 November 2010
  • 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.
