What is the connector on the DC charging cable? What is the name of the small square-ended connector which charges the camcorder through its DC input slot?...
Open question Answer

Not for me

published 26/01/2008

This product is not worth buying. It is not easy to use and doesn't record without error,. It consistently comes up with disk error or format disc even when in the middle of playing or recording something. It has ruined my bonfire night, grandsons birthday and Xmas all of which I have tried to record. I have taken back to the shop I bought it from and had an exchange, but the model is obviously seriously flawed. My advice is Do Not Buy!
