I've borrowed my dad's Panasonic NVDS15B to check if I'll make use of/get along with this type of thing (up to now I've only used point and shoot 35mm/digi cameras). Assuming I get along ok with it, I've seen that for approx. £380 I could get the newer NVDS29B Then I thought "hmm! What Panasonic camera could I get in Canada for the same $$$ (approx. Canada $1000 ?", and I found this: Panasonic PVDV202K . It looks to be alot higher spec than the UK model Anyway, my question, finally, any one else bought none UK models of camera's etc,? Any pit falls re. spares etc.? Thanks for reading - look forward to your replies.
