Sustainable camcorder

The camcorder I got about a month ago does not have an external mike. We need that to have good sound quality for the interviews along the route. Today I get to return the camera I got and buy another one on E-bay. Going used is a great way to reduce consumption. Hopefully it will work out!!
I read recently that Craigslist has changed the way people look at stuff. One person's old stuff becomes another person's new stuff. No new resources are mined and everyone is happy. The seller gets some cash and gets rid of something they no longer want or need and the new buyer gets a deal and something they want or need. Bicycles are actually a great used product since they can be become virtually new by replacing a few parts or just cleaning them up.
The obsession with 'new in the box' is something that needs to go away!!
