Good points:
None In this day and age - I bough this camera 7yrs ago!
Bad points:
DV tape camcorders are too much hassle! You have to capture/rip the footage (into a 13GB AVI file for a 1hr tape) which takes an hour real-time to capture. You then need a super-fast computer to process the captured footage. And you also need to purchase some editing software to edit the footage too, adding extra cost.

I replaced this DV camcorder with an HD Sony camcorder with memory stick storage.

Much, much, much better!
