Back in 2005, I bought a top of line consumer grade 3CCD Panasonic Mini DV camera - PV-GS65. I used it for college film classes and shot a few projects with it back then. I used it to capture and edit on the old Powermac G5's in college at the time. Now it just sits and never gets any use. I can't even remember the last time I used it. I have since upgraded to a HDC-SD600K camcorder, which I would use before the old Standard def Mini DV anyway. I really want to sell the Mini DV but the only thing that stops me is the possible need of playing or capturing footage from an old tape. I can't imagine ever needing to, but still. Also, I don't have many tapes either. I would say maybe 5 tops. I guess I could transfer the tapes to DVD then maybe get rid of it all. What would you guys do? I noticed this particular camera still goes for around $100-$150 used on eBay. Mine is complete and hardly used.
