Re: how to check for fungus in a camcorder?
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.

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?
