Hi all. I need a new DV cheapish camera for capturing some old DV tapes and noticed that my local Sony dealer are selling off HC7s £290 GBP (or about 410 USD) Thats not much more than I was gunna pay for a SD DV - and it will give me HDVto boot. God deal do you think?
Sounds like a good deal.
I use a Sony HDR-HC7 (same camera?) for my B-roll footage. Outstanding HDV image quality in good light; not very good for low light situations. Manual controls quirky or limited so it's best suited for point-and-shoot situations. Battery life not very good. Great price! I'd get it.
