Excerpt: 1-For long periods of shooting.<br />2-SDI output is a great thing when you have video switcher, time code generator it's a good thing to have when you use more than one camera.<br />Price is not to bad neither. <br />3-Iris ring should have start and stop, not infinity.Same goes for the focus ring as well.
Excerpt: I use the NXCAM for shooting weddings and it works very well. I love the digital recording on SD cards! The camera has a pretty decent gain setting, although it can get pretty grainy. Over all, a good deal for the money.
Excerpt: Use this for professional recording and am very pleased with the HD quality. Recommend the accessory flash drive to go with it for dual recording on SD Cards (provides back-up in case of card failure in addition to any other back-up you're using).
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
Very versatile camcorder, but somewhat soft in low light

Summary: I shoot a lot in low light situations, and found the picture a little softer than the Sony pro camera I had before. Very happy with the battery life and large storage of video this camcorder gives you. If you are reading this in March 2014, you may be able to get a $400 rebate from Sony: (Amazon won't permit links. so go to "pro dot sony dot com" and search around for the "rebates for all" info, good til 3/31/14.
Summary: I am a professional videographer, video editor, 3D animator, effects compositor, graphic and web designer, and voice artist with about 15+ years of experience. This is my first purchase of my own for shooting video and I was under a tight budget. Even though I did my due diligence and homework, I was still worried that this wouldn't work for me. Within three days of arrival I took it on a two day shoot and it performed like a CHAMP! Easy to use, very customizable.
Excerpt: I do Family events, TV commercials, Sports, Web videos, and Business videos.<br />I like the fact I only use the SD cards and bring the video into my desktop very easy.<br />I wish there was a good video to watch on how to use the camera.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance
GREAT QUALITY VIDEO. GREAT FOR EDITING. GREAT FOR PRO VIDEO.

Summary: The SONY NXCAM IS THE BEST CAMERA! IT MAKES PROFESSIONAL QUALITY VIDEO AND IS AN AFFORDABLE CAMERA. ITS BATTERY LIFE IS GREAT, AND SHOOTING INTO THE OPTIONAL FLASH DRIVE MAKES EDITING VERY SIMPLE. THIS IS THE BEST CAMERA I HAVE EVER OWNED AND OPERATED. THANKS SO MUCH SONY FOR MAKING SUCH A GREAT CAMERA!
