this must be what evolved into the DSR-200, minus DVCAM format.

I remember seeing one of these on ebay a year or two ago.

I thought they used full size tapes and could record 4 channels of audio.

This information is strictly off memory and could all be inaccurate.

As I recall the VX9000 is a Euopean model equal to the DSR200. I could be a bit confused but it is a very old piece of technology and frankly wouldn't be worth spending any money to buy something like that. The image quality is about the same as my now DOA VX1000. At the time it was mind blowing, today, not so much!

You know these days the DSR 300's are going for pretty cheap.
I have one and love it. It can match up with my pd 170 yet at the same time blow it out of the water.

I saw DSR 300 go $2,300 on ebay.

The VX9000 is the PAL version of the DSR200, which is the pro version of the VX1000. By today's standards, it's not all that good. The image will look soft when compared to any of the 1/3" chip cameras.

Did that DSR300 include a lens, batteries, charger, power supply? If you can get one in good condition, it was probably the best standard def 4:3 1/2" chip camera made.

That one included lens 2 batts and a charger.

I payed $3,251 for mine, came with porta brace bag, lens, VF, StudioVF, AC Adaptor, 4 Batts, Charger, AB camera light, tripod plate, and some Varizoom controllers in a pare tree!

I am sorry I had to brag it was such a great deal.

It's a fine camera, but why would you consider a cam that only does DV and can't do widescreen? For the same price you could have an FX7, which will blow it away, resolution-wise, or if you must have a shoulder-mount, an HD1000.

Buying a new DV cam today is, in my opinion, like buying a B&W TV.

Re: VX9000 / DSR200 / DSR250 various topics

I just purchased a DSR-200 for $140. I already had SONY batteries, so it got used the very same day to record a girls High School Varsity game. Even though I've been shooting HD for 2 years now, the DSR-200 still impressed me with the quality of its video. I did have difficulty using it, since I wasn't using a LANC. When shooting on tripod, you just gotta have a LANC attached when using this behemoth.
