The Panasonic pv-dv900 is a very basic DV camcorder. It uses the mini-dv cassette which is supported by many and is probably better in the long run than Sony's Digital 8 which uses standard 8mm for Digital 8 recorders. The picture quality on the Panasonic pv-dv900 is very good. When I first purchased this camera, I tried it out using a JVC mini dv tape and the picture quality really looked bad, then somehow like overnight, it cleared itself up. Its basically the same as the pv-dv910 by Panasonic, except for the fact that it doesn't come with a light, remote and the viewfinder doesn't move up or down. It does have close to a 2" viewable color display on the LCD. The viewfinder (not the LCD) itself is black and white, so its better to use the LCD color display when recording. You can purchase a light or remote seperately. The battery time is about 1 hour and a half. The charging time is close to an hour or a little less. You can ofcourse transfer your mini dv recording to standard VHS using the supplied video cables. It's also IEEE 1394 pc interface compatible but it doesn't come with the supplied cables.
You can also use this DV camcorder to capture still digital images on your mini-dv tape.
Not such a bad camera. If your looking for some basic mini-DV camcorder then this is probably just for you.

There are many different dv camcorders out there for all kinds of budgets. My budget was no too large for my dv purchase, so I shopped around and found the panasonic. I had read both positive and some luke warm reviews of the pv-dv900, but decided to go for it. I am so glad that i did.
I am not a videophile, but the picture and sound i get out of this camera are amazing. It is still better than my old vhs-c camcorder after I dub onto VHS. It is awesome. Haven't installed my IEEE 1394 card yet, so I am not sure about vid capture.
The other reviewer is right about the few differences between the 900 and the 910. The 900 doe not come with the $40 light or the $30 remote control nor does it come with a blank video tape (that seemed kinda cheap to me). The 910 has a color viewfinder and a 3" LCD versus the 900's b/w viewfinder and 2.5" LCD.
I reccomend this camera very highly.

I bought this camcorder in 2000. The price was great at $500. It was a sale to get rid of the 900s before the newer series came out. The camera is basic. The eyepiece doesn't swivel. Which doesn't matter. I usually use the lcd, which drains the battery faster. The screen is 2.5" small but in color. All in all it is a good camcorder. Like the other reviewer, be careful. This camcorder is discontinued so the price has been jacked up.

Good cheap cam with nice features...
Has firewire IEEE1934 interface to interact with the PC. Still shot capability holds up to 700 mid-quality images.
The problem is that the product is not even listed in the Panasonics site oficially, it's been missing between DV800 and DV950 models ( and 910 misses too ). But actually the info exists in the site when you edit the http address and replace the "950" with the "900". I couldn't confirm any problem with the 900 & 910 series but some dealers stopped to sells these models too.
So, go for the 950 which is lot more expensive but a real professional model or stick with the 800 one...
