At work we have a Panasonic NV-MX300A digital camcorder. Someone bought it years ago (2002?) and it's never really been used. No one knows how to use it, and the manual is lost. I've got a few question I'm hoping someone can answer.
Is it worth my while working out how to use it? It was very expensive at the time, but is it any good by today's standards?
Where can I download a manual? A search of the US Panasonic website comes up with no hits. The Australian one comes up with hits that are other models. What's going on there? On the UK site I found a manual for an NV-MX300B (in about 6 parts) - what's the difference between that model and the 300A?
Our basic problem is that we have no idea how to download from the tape. Do we need special software for that?
The alternative is to use the SD card slot. I tried a 2GB card in it (out of a Canon camera), but it refused to write to it. Does it not support a card that big, does it need to be reformatted in the camcorder?
