    MINI-DV camcorder...
    Any thoughts on where I could look for a used one? (Not Ebay!)

    I'm looking for a miniDV like the Sony Trv-22 or the JVC GRDVM50. Any help
    would be appreciated. (or any thoughts on which one to get?)

    Are there any newsgroups that deal specifically with this sort of equipment?

  2. No.... ;-)
    I don't know the JVC, but the Sony has a good, neutral-pleasant, moderately-sharp
    image with minimal motion-artifacting, good color, and (by current standards...)
    good low-light range. See the PC9 images compared with other Sony imaging
    types at www.ferrario.com/ruether/camcorder--comparison.htm (the Sony PC9,
    TRV11, 17, 18, 19, and 22 all have the same picture...). The 22 is pleasantly tiny,
    and I'm (sorta...;-) getting used to the touch-screen controls (I prefer buttons
    and a wheel for controls). Look also at the TRV33 - it has a sharper image and a
    bit better color, but less low-light range and higher picture contrast ("normal" vs.
    a bit o' "pizzaz"...;-).
    Try rec.video...

    Just wondering - why not ebay?

    Try amazon - they have some used items, too.

    www.bhphotovideo.com has a used equipment section also.
