I finally made a hdv purchase after years of sd production. I was using a jvc gy-dv500u and loved the performance and resolution. Before that I shot on Betacam Sp with a uvw-100.

I decided to try the sony fx1 because it's relatively cheap, still shoots DV and looks like a professional camera.

Guess what, it is a professional camera! I even got away using a simple xlr adapter I made up for the cost of a capacitor to record from my shotgun.

The ease of use is unbelievable, as is the performance. I shot an event in sd dv on complete auto and it is stunning. I had the camera on a monopod- what a fun experience after lugging around a shoulder mounted camera for half of my life.

And I never even needed to recharge the 3 standard l series batteries, which all fit comfortably in my pocket.

I even bought a very cheap sima led camera lite for $40 which worked just right for the low light stuff.

Try one, you'll love it
