Saying goodbye to another one of my babies...
It's time to retire my baby (a SONY PD-150 that I've had since 2000 (the day after the "Rage riot" - was filming at the DNC when police shot my 3rd VX-1000))
So now my camera is dead. I've had it refurbished already ($600+), about 3 years ago, so it's over now. The audio board is shot - you can only hear out of one headphone at a time, after a fair amount of jiggling. Now the camera is shooting things all dithered, no matter how many times I clean the head.
I don't know how I'm going to buy another camera (as I finish grad school) but my fingers are crossed. I don't need anything too fancy. I'd like a Panasonic's AG-DVX100B. Can I borrow $3000?
