PXL-2000 Camera

Back in the late 80's, Fisher Price released a working video camera for kids, called the PXL-2000, which recorded highly pixelated images (Pixelvision) on audio cassette tapes.

I'm trying to find one for potential use on my next project (they're only available used now, as they were discontinued in 1989). If you know anyone who has one and wants to sell it, please contact me via the comments section or here by email.

Thanks, Dan. I had checked out ebay. The second link you provided is one I'm considering, if the microphone problem they mention can be fied. The first one looks a little worse for wear, so I'm leery of buying an "as is, no guarantees" product that hasn't been tested (I love it when ebay sellers say "it worked last time I used it, but I haven't tested it" -- which is code for: "i'm pretty sure it doesn't work, but if i don't confirm that, i don't have to say it on the listing.")
