Excerpt: This is the least expensive version of Sony's 3 1/3" Exmor cmos and 20x zoom cameras. It shoots to tape and has no xlr's but the image is excellent and matches well to the nx5, nx3, z5u cameras which use the same sensors and zoom. The zoom has some optical distortion but very little chromatic aberration. I found the built in stereo mic quite good, just be careful of camera operation as it does not isolate those well.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance

Summary: I 've just received FX 1000 from Prostreet1 today. It 's very well packed. Indeed it's Used - Like new. This cam is a upgrade from my VX 2000 (Don't laugh at me. I have just captured a funeral by VX 2000 on Jannuary 2015. Pictures came out very good when play back DVD on Blueray player with HDMI cable connection on medium TV. Surprise me! It just appears grain on 50 '' TV: not bad. That 's also a reason I need a backup and upgrade to this HD cam.
Summary: I like it , one problem is ,it save the video in NTS format but my requirement is PAL format.Any one know how to change the mode ?i asked few of my frnds .but no result .If anybody know please let me know.This question to seller also .
Summary: I bought the Sony FX1000 as I wanted a semi pro video camera to use for my own videos. I have a background in TV production and found the manual controls great to use. The image quality is brilliant. Being digital you can import the footage straight into you computer to edit. The movies I have filmed have looked great, sounded good and have been fun to produce. If you want a great camera, this is it.
Summary: This camcorder can see in the dark, it was a great choice for dance shows (bad lighting, change all the time). Build to last, and its nice to keep MiniDV as a backup. Large battery good for 7-8 hours (lots of zoom action) Can't find anything negative.
Excerpt: I use this camera for dance and theater videography. The low light capabilities are stellar. In super dim scenarios, there is a lot of noise as people have mentioned. Keep in mind that most cameras would give you no visible imagery at all. I have found that setting the gain on high and closing the iris down helps get a cleaner image. No XLR inputs is a con but Beachtek solves that easily with good results. All in all, I find this to be a great camera for the price.
Pros: Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
