NOTE: It is highly recommended that individuals unfamiliar with this equipment spend some time learning about it before its actual use.

For example, you should assure that the camcorder batteries are fully charged before placing the camcorder in service. Also, the camcorder has many programmable settings. You should familiarize yourself with its operation before you find it not working as expected while taping your event.

Priority is normally given to classroom presentations by faculty who are unable to reserve equipment from Penn State's Media Tech group. Since most items are checked out several times per week, it is normally difficult to reserve these items for long periods of time. Contact our office for more information.
