Sony GVD-1000 Mini DV Walkman

Dose anyone use the Sony GVD-1000 Mini DV Walkman to edit with instead of your camcorder?

Sometimes. My friend has one, which he is so kind and lets me use it when I need it. It's a great little editing deck, very expensive!

Thanks for the input. I found it at B&H Photo for $1,050.00 and I am trying to decide wether it is worth the money.

I've been using this deck for 4 years and although it's getting a bit worn out, it's worked fine. It's seen some heavy usage over this time, and I suspect it's going to need some work soon, but it has undoubtedly saved my camera's drive motor. As far as the price- it seems way high, but there aren't many options available. I would recommend it to anyone. Mike Rupp

Hey Guys thanks for the valuable input. I will be purchasing a Sony walkman as soon as I can put enough cash together. I just bought a GL2 and a DVX100 and my wife says I need to slow down a little. They just donít get it do they.

Sony GVD-1000 Mini DV Walkman

I just sent mine back.

The picture was decent, but the sound was very choppy and sometimes didn't play at all. Very jumpy.

The tapes played fine in my camera, but the Sony was horrible.

I am not sure. I've heard this works well with the Canon XL1s: AG-DV2000 DV

But it is $1700.

If you aren't using the XL1s, the Sony should work fine. For some reason the XL1s creates a lot of problems with tape speed and decks.

I may just purchase a cheap camcorder to use as a deck. I basically want to save my XL1s for shooting only. I am worried that a ton of editing will ruin the heads.

Doses anyone use the Sony GVD-1000 Mini DV Walkman deck with the Cannon GL2 or Panasonic DVX100?

Same question for the Panasonic AG-DV2000 DV deck.

Ron,

What did you end up getting? I have a GL2 that I have to send to the repair shop, which has made me seriously start to look at DV decks.

I am just using a small mini DV Cam as a deck.

I am switching to HD so I will be selling my Gl2 and Dvx 100 and probably some other stuff as well.

Yes, all the time. It's a very good little deck.
