Sony Mini DV DSR PD150 Broadcast Quality Digital Camcorder

Comes with original battery NP-F330 plus a second battery NP-F550. Strap, microphone, remote control and high-quality case all included.

Very little use from new. Low hours, serviced last year and hardly used since. A real snip. I also have the USB adaptor, lead and software that makes it so you can load and edit with USB onto your computer. This would be an extra £15 if you wanted it.
