Summary: Final Thoughts
I really do like the Zx1, I have looked at quite a few small portable digital camcorders and the Zx1 is one of the better ones that I have seen. It is very easy to use, can shoot 720p at both 60 and 30 frames, and can fit up to a 32GB SDHC card. The biggest problem I had with the Zx1 is the buzzing sound that appeared on all of the videos that I shot. This is just not acceptable.
Pros: – Easy to use, – Shoots 720p video at 60fps, – Takes photos, – Small and compact
Cons: – Very annoying buzzing sound on all videos, – Need an external charger for the batteries, – Only 128MB internal memory (SDHC slot for extra memory)
Summary: This is one of two small HD camcorders (mobile phone size) that I am looking at. So as part of my reviews I take some clips at local gigs and then send links to the clips to the musicians, whom I ask which is better and why.
