I am selling a Canon Vixia HV30 for $200, plus shipping. I have been using this camcorder for a while now and have been impressed by the quality but need some cash now. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REASON FOR THE LOW PRICE IS THAT THE DV PORT IS BROKEN. The camcorder is functional but the DV port is not. However, there are other ways to get the footage for editing:
1. If you have a buddy with an HDV camcorder, simply take the MiniDV tape out of the device and put it into theirs and transfer the footage to your computer. (This is what i have been doing)
2. If you care to purchase a Black Magic Intensity or similar capture card, the HDMI port can be used to capture the footage.
3. You can always take the MiniDV tapes to a photo/video store and have them digitized, although i think it may be a little pricey.
If you can work out a way to get the footage, this price is a steal. With the camcorder I will include the battery, the charger and the component out cables. I do not have the instruction manual but it is available via PDF download. I would like to sell via paypal, or in person if you are in either the central NH or boston metro regions (Im going to be back in school in a week)
