HDR-FX1 review

Digital Arts
7 February 2005
  • Excerpt: HDV has caused as much furore among video professionals as its predecessor DV did back in the late 1990s. Differing opinions over its usefulness have lead to heated arguments over whether it’s ‘pro’ or just for consumers, whether the MPEG-2 compression at its heart is better or worse than DV, and whether a compressed version of HD is a stupid idea in the first place.
  • Pros: Exceptional output quality at 1080i resolution. Shape and layout taken from PD170 and VX2100 camcorders, with quick access to most controls through buttons. Offers low-cost access to HD capture.
  • Cons: Limited manual controls. No XLR inputs. Z1 due soon. Menu system tricky to use due to button/screen positioning.

  • Conclusion: Der Sony HDR-FX1 fehlen CCDs mit der vollen HDV-Auflösung, was zumindest in der Horizontalauflösung zu merken ist. Trotzdem ist der subjektive Bildeindruck sehr gut, was auf das sehr gute Dynamikverhalten mit extrem wenig Rauschen sowie die stimmigen Farben mit perfekter Automatikblende zurückzuführen ist.
  • Pros: sehr guter subjektiver Bildeindruck, weitwinkelige Optik, durchdachte Bedienung, sehr gute Ausstattung
  • Cons: keine volle HDV-Auflösung, DV-Qualität nur durchschnittlich
