Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  will this camera use the mini Dv tapes?
Andrew R  No, this unit uses memory cards and its own internal memory to record video.
Judy W  Will this camera project live video feed? I'm presenting finger puppets to a large group and want to project presentation onto a large screen.
Andrew R  Unfortunately the user manual is unclear, however it would appear that the projector will not work with a live feed.
Shopper  What do I need to mount this to a telescope? I have a telescope that takes 1.25" eyepieces. Thanks
JAMES B  I think the threads on the lense are 52mm. So you will need an adapter with 52mm threads going to your 1.25" eyepiece mount. You might have to jerry-rig this yourself.
