Hi, Just bought an HV20 with low hours usage from eBay and am waiting for it to arrive. So I now I'm wondering what to do with my standard-def JVC GR-D850 miniDV camcorder. Its is a 2008 model consumer model, and although I was never blown away by the image quality it was always a reliable (if middling) performer with a good selection of manual control options -- but it is standard definition.
If I sell it it's likely to not garner more than $50-$75 on eBay - then eBay and PayPal will take their nearly 10% cut out off that. Almost not worth selling.
But would there be any sense in keeping it? Useful as a "B" camera maybe (but the footage would obviously stand out). Can anyone think why it might be useful to keep a spare standard definition camera around?
My problem is I form a nostalgic connection to old-technology!
