Summary: i bought this great sony HDV camera (FX1) i must say i live in europe and this is my first time i am buying from Amazone. I was not sure of the delivery time, so i was concerned about being in the US long enough. i was delighted as, withing 3 days, it was delivered. I thank you very much for your prompt respons and your wonderfull camera.I am enjoying it everyday by discovering the new possibilities i have to make better films recording.
Summary: Got my hands on one of these babies this weekend for a no-budget short film. Loved it. So easy to use, and the picture is great. It's true, the finished look is not "cinematic", which is a fair criticism, but for the price it is great if you're looking to upgrade to a high-def digital picture. Watched the playback on a 16:9 widescreen TV before editing and it was beautiful. However, you can't rely on the auto-functions.
It may not be the best camera ever but it still rocks!!

Summary: I am a student filmmaker and I just bought this camera from sonystyle.com. Its a great consumer camcorder. It does not offer true HD picture quality but it does offer true HD resolution. If you want a HD camera that rivals film cameras expect to spend 50 to 100 thousand dollars. The best thing about the camera is its resolution and true 16:9 aspect ratio. If you hate the 16:9 squeeze mode on other camcorders this is the camcorder for you.
