I am looking at buying a used Panasonic DVX100 and was curious what you guys thought an appropriate number of hours placed on the camera would be? There is one for sale nearby that has 90 hours on it and have no idea if that is a high number or if it would last me quite a few years.

Thanks a lot,
Tom

Just test it and look at the cosmetic condition and you should know if it was treated right. 90 is pretty low, probably not owned by a production company, but an individual.

If you were to use the camera everyday, five days a week, for 3 weeks and 3 days, that's how much its been used in total.... Plus if the camera was being taken care of, it is probably okay. I use my DVX much more than that.....
