Camcorder Canon L2 questions.

by Razaele / March 29, 2008 1:23 AM PDT

It's been about a year since I've owned this camcorder. My dad recently found this tucked away in this warehouse at his job where most of the majority of electronic/appliances are kept for auction or sales. After his retirement, he snagged this camcorder from the warehouse and took it to me. I came to find out that it was a Canon L2 to which i was suprised how in good condition it is knowing that it was manufactured around 93'. It didn't have a shotgun mic at the time, so I was lucky enough to go on ebay and bid on one for about 30 bucks. The camera works alright for its condition, the only few problems is that the view finder had suddenely gave up on me sometime ago as I was testing out some footage. The picture qaulity tends to seesaw on black & white to color picture. Picture qaulity is alright, but it seems as if noticable lines that run horizontal on the picture contrast the video. I have pictures on here to show what I'm talking about. I'm not very ergonomic on this paticular camcorder, So I'm hoping any of you out there might know a little more about what I'm talking about. Here are the links to the pictures;

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
