If you are sticking to video then this is a good all-round, budget mini-DV camcorder.
If you plan on doing still image capture this is not for you as there is no removeable memory/disc. Which is a pity really since it is the only place this camera falls down...
This NV DS27 Mini-DV Camcorder from Panasonic is a well-featured, nicely presented mini-DV camcorder, especially considering its low price. The image quality of the DV format is good and it also has a 15x optical zoom.
The facility for shooting in zero light conditions works pretty well.
The motion sensor which kicks the camera into record mode when movement is detected is great for recording yourself and setting up tricks if you are that way inclined...
All in all a good piece of kit at an affordable price.
