Although my son wasn't real confortable with the FU-1000 viewfinder, I was greatly pleased with the look. My only concern with the use of the 1000 viewfinder and the 16x manual lens was battery drain as I'm currently only using single 945 type batteries. The footage captured was fantastic...and not as difficult to use with rapidly changing situations as I thought. It was so nice to zoom in and out to change framing of shots and NEVER had to worry about any back focus problems. Overall I was very pleased......

Using a b&w viewfinder is definitely an acquired taste for many people. It's also a bit of an act of faith, as you trade color for sharpness and field of view.

The FU-1000 does love electricity. The relative lateness of low-power indication adds a certain adventure to shooting. I often use a CH-910 dual battery holder/charger when shooting locked-down shots. With a bit of experience you'll just get a feel for when your gas tank is getting low with the 945's.
