Are there any [b]MiniDV tape player on the market?[/b] Basically, so that I don’t have to use my camcorder to play back the tapes which degrades the heads.
I figured there was some sort of external device such as with VHS-C tapes have (Obviously, I know that I can’t play a MiniDV in a standard VCR. That is not what I mean. Just a for example)?
I have seen MiniDV rewinders but that’s it, although I haven’t really looked yet.
You can find MiniDV VCR’s out there, but because they’re mainly produced for studio use, you’re looking at around $1000. Your best bet would be to buy a cheap camera for playback.
