Hi all,

I'm thinking of purchasing a used PD150 Sony Camcorder with the following hours:

Operation 304 x 10h
Drum Run 104 x 10h
Tape Run 67 x 10h
Threading 358 x 10h

The seller claims the product is in good condition, but the drum and tape hours seem to be approaching their life expectancy, so I guess I'd just appreciate any kind of advice as to this one.

I've asked the service history and use of the camera and i'm waiting the seller's response. what are the typical problems associated with a camera of this usage. I'm not keen to buy the camera, and have it serviced only to find out that half the inards need replacing.
