Hey Fozzie,

It sounds like you are trying to carry out surveillance from a vehicle,
there are many factors to consider. Lighting, distance from camera to target, duration of recording etc.
Depending on your budget I would consider using a bespoke system.
Look up Vis on here and pm him as he has lots of Gucci kit

Cheers,

im trying to utilise the equipment I have at present, I have a 12v bullet camera and an old pin camera that has been used with other camcorders in the past, the real question I have is whether they can be attached to the Panasonic camcorder for recording. I fully understand the parameters and limits to these lenses, it’s the recording side I’m needing assistance with, both have AV leads (red,white,yellow), I just need them to attach to a mini dvr to capture the images

Fozzie,

I don't think the HC-V270 has inputs only various outputs, if this is the case you won't be able to use it as the recorder. If you buy a recorder make sure it is compatible pin hole cameras are normally analog rather that hd digital so bare that in mind.

yeah I’ve had a play with it and it’s not going to work, I’m happy with it as a handheld for other work. Cheers
