Thread: how to check for fungus in a camcorder?

    Default how to check for fungus in a camcorder?

    I plan to buy a 2nd hand camcorder for my sis, but is worried about fungus problem. How to check for fungus in a camcorder (it is dark...right?)? With normal camera lens, I can see through it, and point it at a bright light source. How about camcorder lens?

    What else should I check/take note of when buying 2nd hand camcorder?

    Thanks.

    Use a penlight and shine into the lens while looking carefully. About the only way. Consumer camcorder lenses doesn't have that many elements and groups anyway.

    Thanks, CK. but I don't have a pen lightleh...torch light can?

    Plan to get the Sony DCR TRV 17e. Any comments? What's the reasonable price (in buyer shoe) to pay for a year+ old model? S$800 ok?
