The Sony HDR-FX1: A work horse for filming in the Third World
5 August 2012
Summary: We purchased the camera as a backup to the FX1 that we own. This camera is in excellent shape as it had been handled with immaculate care. The Sony FX1is a superlative camera in every respect. It's only drawback today is that it does not have the capability of recording to a solid state chip, recording only to mini DV tapes.
Summary: I now have three HDR-FX1 cameras, mainly because they are such great workhorse cameras with exceptional HD quality at an incredible price. Pros: three big imaging chips, fantastic lenses, good form factor, plush with manual controls. Cons: No XLR audio jacks, no progressive mode, and only records to tape internally. I have external solid-state chip recording devices that overcome the tape limitation, and they record in progressive.
Summary: Sony HDR-FX1 3-CCD HDV High Definition Camcorder w/12x Optical Zoom this is the best camcorder hd i ever use with the stuning hd video ,clear like crital and shiny like diamond eventhought it use a hdv tape it is still pretty good .i would recommended this for wedding short movie ,interview and video music.sony it is just the best in video camcorder ,i mean to say the king.this camcorder would not dissapointed you.i really recommended it if your swicthind from sd to...

Summary: OK I normally dont buy online but when this camera first came out a few years ago I checked the specs and wanted it hands down. I bought it off ebay here and to my surprise even used it meets all the needs i need it for. It does 1080 video along with standerd built in mic which seems good for a built in along with the option to put a powered mic to it. All in all it's a good buy weither your a pro or not it'll fit the bill all the way around..
Summary: Man this is a crazy deal. Every thing mentioned total about 5g or more. He gonna drop it for about 3,999. Pulse is truly a completed set ready for ACTION. I really recommend this camera for Filming. A bid would be interesting.
this camera is the allmighty power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summary: can only say good things about this camera, since day one of receiving the package in the mail i was out and about filming anything and everything i could possibly see! Would recommend this camera to anyone who is looking for the edge and raw feeling of making films. The hdr fx-1 provides you with everything you need to make independent films and what ever your mind desires.
Summary: This camcorder still (after 6 years of being on market), still bests in low-light recording. It generates brighter color than the Canon HX-A1 (this is also a good camcorder) that we've had in the past. I'm waiting in the market for its replacement and I have not found better low-light camcorder as of yet. None of 2011 pre-announcements indicate that the low-light sensitivities will get better. Only draw back is that it does 1440x1080 instead 1920x1080.
