Summary: This camera is the best of both worlds. It is as small as a consumer camcorder, but has rugged metal construction instead of flimsy plastic. It comes with a phantom powered stereo XLR input module which is an add-on for most camcorders. The picture quality and features are superb.
Summary: I teach videography and have tried many different camcorders before deciding on the PDX10 as the best compromise between price, easy of use, and professional quality. The best feature of the PDX10 is the dual-XLR audio inputs and good quality microphone normally included with the camera.
Summary: The Sony DSR-PDX10 professional DVCAM camcorder is almost identical to the consumer dsr-trv950. (The dsr-trv950 was just replaced with the horrible dsr-hc1000.) The PDX10 is one of the smallest prosumer cameras and has a ton of features.
Summary: This camera is great if you are on a low budget. In fact, as of this date, it doesn't get better. Everyone has mentioned the greats... tons of digital controls over your image, a touch screen, and xlr ins. That's great.
Summary: ESTA CAMARA DE VIDEO SONY PDX 10 ES MUY BUENA, PARA FILMAR EN CONDICIONES DE POCA LUZ, SUS MICROFONOS SON DE BUY BUENA RECEPCION, SU PANTALLA GRANDE PERMITE VER SON MEJORES DETALLES LAS IMAGENES, LOS COLORES DE LAS IMAGENES PERFECTAS. NO LE PIDE FAVOR A LA PD150-PD170. MUY BUENA VIDEOCAMARA.
Summary: Quite often I notice many reviewers associate the word "professional" with this camcorder, which is frustrating since this camcorder is not "professional"; it is a professional consumer (prosumer) camcorder.
