    I am testing out a second hand one of these (£340) and whilst it is rather good, I notice some odd behaviour. The auto focus seems to need quite a brightly lit area to trigger the refocus on on area. Also when shooting sunlight + shadows on grass, it causes a shimmering effect that almost pulsate (while camera moving or not moving). Do you think there's something wrong with the camera, or could this just be a 'feature' ??!!

    Also i've had a couple of 'drop out's' on a brand new Maxell tape. Is this normal for Mini DV ? Or could the head be dirty ?

    Other than that the colour looks very good, pictures seem pretty sharp and I like the viewfinder.
