Panasonic PV-DV100 Camcorder Review - Panasonic MiniDV Camcorders

...but golly it's CHEAP!

Not the best but Good for the Price

Price, Price Price. Good clarity in bright light. Compactness. Easy to use.

poor in lo light - stills & camcorder. Only 7 LUX. Jog button is overused

A great inexpensive mini DV!

 

If you are struggling with the decision to buy a mini DV versus a Hi-8, I suggest you take a look at the features and price of this great camcorder.

Nice Price
