Hey All... I've got a Canon ZR70MC... about 3 1/2 years old. It's worked great and I've been very happy with it. I just took it out of the camera bag and it suddenly doesn't work. The view screen works for setup mode and plays back previously recorded video but new video is just black. It records sound just fine. And yes, I did take the lens cap off... I checked several times. As far as I know there's been no drops or damage. Did my CCD just die on my out of the blue? Is it worth trying to get one of these repaired? If I decide to replace it any suggestions? It's primary use is just shotting home movies of the kids so I don't need a lot of features or crazy zoom abilities. It's all about getting pictures of the little ones. I'm all set up to edit video with Pinacle studio on the computer.
