Optura 50/60 Footage

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me where I can find footage and short films of one of these cameras in action.

I'm planning on buying one real soon and I really would like to get a good idea what I can expect to get.

So far the only thing I could find are a few small clips on DVSpot.

Thanks guys

- Shane

This was posted by someone way way back. Done with the Optura Xi. http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/blogs/gems/philg/MG42.wmv

There are also a few Optura Xi videos here: http://users.frii.com/uliasz/wayfarer/video.htm

Is the Xi and the 50 similar in image quality?

Yes, the imaging platform is identical. The Optura 50 is newer with much needed usability enhancements like the widescreen view in the LCD and a top loading tape drive.

Its not the best, but I've got an Optura 30 sample on my web site.
