I am buying a video camera tomorrow and I thought I'd come ask yer honest opinion. For around the same price ($550) I can get either an open box Panasonic 3CCD MiniDV camcorder (forgot the model number, but it had a manual focus ring [which I wanted] and Leica lens) or a "sealed" Canon 1CCD camera (Optura 20). I'm a Canon man and have been for several years in the still image area... but the Panny seems to be a better deal. What do you guys think? How are Panny's cams?
