I am thinking about purchasing a Panasonic AG-HMC150 with 285 hours on it. The seller is including a 4gig card and the items listed below for $1850. The unit seems to be in great shape but I have seen prices that range from $1675 up to over $2200. Can you give me an idea of what a good used price would be?
The camera comes with:
-AC power supply cords/DC cord
-Two (2) extra Panasonic brand VW-VBG6 7.2V 5800mAh Batteries
-Panasonic CD Operating Instructions
-Original Panasonic wireless remote
-Panasonic camera strap
-Original component video cable
-Original Lens hood (as pictured) and original lens cap
-Three (3) PIN-BNC conversion plugs (unused)
-Four (4) Ferrite cores
-Rubber eye cup (pictured)

That's a nice camcorder with a CCD image sensor and decent low-light performance. That said, the new AC90 can be had for less brand-new with a 3-year warranty. Uses a smaller CMOS chip, but can add quite a bit of gain without adding noise. Is said to have an amazing image stabilizer and amazing sharpness.

I've been following eBay for a few months looking for the exact same camera. You are correct in that most seem to be selling around the $1600-$1800 range. If you can land one for less than $1600, you probably got a great deal.
If you did get that 4 GB card, toss it and go out and buy a 32 GB. The cost on those are ridiculously low now.
