http://www.woot.com/

do notthink too much

woot is have a 24 hour sale 100.00 after tax, shipping and paypal charges. 89.99 is a great price but not when 5.00 is robbed to other areas.

I owned this and would get in a heartbeat again. I d id with woot, but denied the sale due to the reasons above my opinion only.

yes its MP4 format yes its 3x optical zoom, and yes its a Cell type cam, why one must compare CELL to CELL , Pistol to Pistol. LMAO!

I still have this cam but I don't quite recommend it. If you spend well under $100 it's not bad like maybe $75 or $80 but for $100, rather spend a little more to get a lot more. The PD2 is the red-headed step child of Sanyo camcorders, didn't seem like much work was put into it. Specs look good on paper but not the Sanyo quality I'm used to. You can get a used or refurbished higher-level Sanyo cam from amazon for maybe $10 more.

Please take a look at this thread -

Choose: Kodak Zx3 or Zi8?

where I'm indecisive and vacillate between the two (I have both).

The Zx3 has the great advantage of being waterproof and pretty rugged -
having said that, I just use the Zi8 a lot more -
that is since I got the Kodak Silicone sleeve for it -
then Fishy told me his Zi8 survived a splashing at Sea World
(what he was doing getting in the tank with a killer whale I don't know....)
To quote Fishy - "your choice"
both are very good pocket HD camcorders -
I can't choose,
so I got both (cheap - refurbished and used "Like New")......
