jump on deal for $50 off coupon

list price $799 at RCA Website

Great deal, but kinda heavy and lacking many, many features. Think I'll spend the extra couple hundred for something that won't become obsolete so soon. For example, no analog inputs so that you can route your old camcorder video through it and convert it to DV.

That said, it is a stellar deal for those who need something simple.

Thanks all. Where is that $50 off $250 coupon then? I can not find it.

if I need another digi camcorder, I will buy it. this is branded as RCA. but it is actually a JVC 300 miniDV and it is made by JVC and possibly made in Japan. I have a JVC 300 for over a year. very happy with it. $250+ is a very good price for this basic mini cam.
I am not sure about the 5 pound thing. My JVC is decently small.

I will buy this any time over a $500 SONY digital8 which is HUGE.

THIS IS A SMOKING DEAL.

FIREWIRE BABY EDIT AND MAKE YOUR OWN DVD.


GOT IT!!!

$262 after tax, ship date says it'll be here tomorrow. I wonder how long it'll stay alive


Best deal i've ever gotten in on, i registered because i'm EXCITED!

I used an iMac DV edition in school to make projects, we used a converter box(rca to firewire) and it didn't at all compare to the Canon DV camcorder the teacher had.
The one thing i regret is that my friend just got a Canon Hi8 camera for around 230, Digital is much easier to manipulate than capturing off composite/analog.
Now i need that 80gb Western Digital Special Edition, my 8 gb loaner won't cope and a new burner. Ugh and I was going to be buying a car in a couple weeks <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0>, 18 years old and i'm still a child

i bought one too. seems like is a great deal.

Amazon reviews look good.

Also the Amazon people paid around $600+.

Where is that $50 off $250 coupon then? I can not find it.Thanks all.

Well, I bought one with FAT-feaver and then decided I should find out what I bought, so...

RCA'S website has the CC9370 owners manual pdf and on page 68, specifications, it says 16:1 power zoom lens and 400:1 digital zoom. I hope this means we get a 16x optical. The funny thing of this though is that on eBay all the 9370 auctions state 10x, however all the auctions are resellers so maybe they don't know, like us. Also the JVC seems to have a F1.8 lens but the RCA manual says F1.6, f-3.9 to 62.4 which is 16x. I hope this bodes well. Oh shit!!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-frown.gif"border=0> On page 47, Recording, the manual says 250x digital and 10 times optical---I guess I won't put much faith in RCA or getting a 16x lens.

I believe this camera is the JVC GR-DVL505U without the remote, but possibly with a 16x lens. The 300 has a 2.5" screen, the 500 has a color viewfinder, which this does not according to the RCA manual, so that leaves the 505.

Oh, the manual says 1.3 lbs. just like the JVCs. The 4.5 lbs. quoted at OfficeMax and elsewhere hopefully show their ignorance of weight and optics <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

With a google search on the 505, I found a Consumer Reports article by clicking on cached (I don't have a subscription) and the only info I could gather was poor low light ability.

Can someone please suggest a digital camcorder which has analog inputs, as well as all necessary features at a good price?

Thanks.

Yes, they seem to be quoting the shipping weight (box and all accessories)!

The JVC 500 sounds like the equivalent medel, as the 505 has a card slot, which the RCA does not have.

It is a 10x zoom, according to the Amazon reviews, but one person recommends a 2x converter to go with it.

Bumping this up, so as to keep everything in one thread.

How would you guys compare it to the CC9373 which sells on Amazon for $288. Seems like a slight upgrade. Amazon gives free shipping and no tax.

This sounds like something to have. Any1 know of one like this?

Big difference is the multimedia card slot and the 16MB card included - this is likely the equivalent to the JVC 505 that someone mentioned earlier.

shucks, I thought i was getting a flaming deal, now its only hot

however, if you want a real digital camera, don't buy a camcorder. You'll get much better quality with a dedicated unit. My Canon G1 is an excellent camera and takes pictures at a much higher resolution than, dare I say it, any of these low end camcorders

The "problem" with Amazon is that they are possibly misleading - once the item goes out of stock, the offer price seems to drop as well, such as with the Panasonic deal. I wonder if anyone actually did get a CC9373 for $288!<img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0>

<< Can someone please suggest a digital camcorder which has analog inputs >>



Princeman,
I heard most new digital cameras no longer have analog inputs to prevent easy dvd copying.

Analog AV inputs

The Specs page seems to indicate that there are RCA A/V in/outputs as well as S-video connections.

Just scored one by phone. Thanks all.

Can someone please suggest a digital camcorder which has analog inputs

Check the JVC dvl920u. Has the analog inputs you want, and with most JVC520u and up, it is 1MP! See if Canon or Sony offer 1MP. Great images. Also does still images to MMC or SD card, also MPEG4 video to the card. I use the 10x optical zoom to for still images, since my normal digial camera only does 2x optical.

I just got one by phone also. $249.98 delivered.

No sales tax?

Those that order by phone

its backordered.

Brucelee3: The Specs page seems to indicate that there are RCA A/V in/outputs as well as S-video connections.

Thanks for looking! Still not sure it will record in DV from a VCR source however. The pdf manual above only talks about recording to a VCR the output of this DV camcorder. And the specifications in the pdf don't list it. I looked at the Canon ZR40, now at around $400, as a better bet for this. Will also look at the JVC suggested by dimwit. Nice price though. Thanks!

If yours is not available in you local distribution center, see if they can check the nearest alternative distribution center. Mine wasn't available in the one but was in the other. just mean a little bit longer delivery time (mine's due here in Rochester, NY next Wednesday). By the way, I called, they kinda implied that it was a rotating special. I told them my friend just ordered one and it showed as available. They had the price at $499 but they asked what "my friend" paid. I said $299, then used the $50 off $250 coupon. Total: $269.98! Terrific!

And, if anyone asks, you can just say that your friend in Rochester, NY just bought one...


Good Luck!
