Summary: We have been using this camcorder for a few years now! It was far more expensive when we bought it but it has done us so well over the years. It is a solid bit of kit and we subtracted a star because we need to move on from minidv tapes.
Summary: The BBC owned many of these professional camcorders for TV news broadcasts ENG= Elec News Gathering (3 CCD = TV broadcast quality). The BBC probably now use the newer model - Sony Z 5 (£4,500) because it also records in 1080i which the BBC prefer instead of 1080 p.
