The HV20 shoots 1080i on HD tapes, but can also shoot 720x480 on regular tapes. Some notable features are 24 fps, microphone in, firewire/USB, HDMI, lots of manual control (focus, aperture, shutter speed), 10x zoom, f1.8, etc.
I am also including a Raynox 0.66x wide angle conversion lens (43mm attachment). This thing is awesome, I used it a lot this season to film skiing, and it makes a huge difference. The HV20, like many prosumer HDV cameras, has a pretty bad FOV, and this lens makes the FOV phenomenal. At full zoom however, there is a little distortion on the image with the conversion lens. Unfortunately I lost the lens cap for the Raynox, but I've kept the lens tucked away safely in the original case most of the time, so the lens surface is pristine.
This will also include an extra battery, nearly identical to the original battery. Both batteries work perfectly. In fact, everything works perfectly, except there are a few harmless dings on the HV20 body. This is a great camera for skiing, plenty of battery life, good wide angle, tapes are cheap, great video and on-board audio is actually decent.
So, the list of included items is as follows:
- Canon VIXIA HV20 HDV camcorder
- Raynox 0.66x conversion lens
- 2 Lithium ion batteries (BP-2L13, BP-2L14)
- Canon remote control
- Charger for HV20
- Original box and manual for HV20
- Original box and manual for Raynox lens
All for $500, fairly firm.
Unfortunately I can't include any empty tapes, sorry.
