Sony HDR-FX1000 Handycam HDV Camcorder
The Sony HDR-FX1000 Handycam is the highly-anticipated successor to the acclaimed HDR-FX1. The camera improves upon its predecessor in a variety of areas, including overall performance and range of features. CinemaTone technology enhances both gamma and color, providing exceptional images that exhibit a beautiful film-like aesthetic. At the heart of the camcorder are three 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Exmor sensors, which capture detailed imagery even in extreme low-light! Combined with a professional wide-angle lens and a super-high resolution LCD screen, the HDR-FX1000 is ideal for both the enthusiast and seasoned professional.
For more info
Sony newest top-of-the-line prosumer camcorder, the HDR-FX1000, replaces the HDR-FX1 and adds a substantial number of improvements, including three Exmor-enhanced 1/3" CMOS sensors, a wide-angle 20x G-Series lens, and—in a welcome first from Sony's consumer division—24p/30p progressive scan recording. Other new features include increased low-light sensitivity (down to 1.5 lux), dedicated zoom, focus and iris rings, 3 built-in ND filters, and a 3.2" Xtra Fine LCD with an impressive 921K-pixel screen.
And while the lack of XLR inputs keeps this fixed-lens camera from full professional status, its street price of $3,199 is $500 less than the FX1 and less than half the price of the pro-level HVR-Z7U (which adds an interchangeable lens to an otherwise similar feature set). This makes the FX1000 an amazing package for independent videographers and filmmakers seeking broadcast-quality, 24p film-like imagery.
