So is it 35 or 30 times optical?
Great Price, but now Inferior Technology. Good as backup though because soon you wont have a way of playing your old tapes.

Definitely not inferior technology, just less convenient. miniDV compresses footage much less than a HDD or mini-DVD camcorder, therefore producing superior final results.

The only downside is lazy people not taking the time to capture footage properly onto their PC's. However, if you have a DVD recorder with firewire input, miniDV is a breeze to put onto 12cm DVD's. If I were buying a consumer camcorder today, I'd opt for miniDV, and spend the savings (over buying HDD or DVD camcorder) on getting a half-decent DVD recorder.

The advantages of miniDV marginally outweigh the advantages of HDD, and are vastly better than ****** DVD camcorders.

So is it 35 or 30 times optical?

Definitely 30. The OP has just copy-pasted from Amazon, who have the title of this product wrong on their website.
Price on the linked page is £136.99.
