I'm still learning the ropes with the FX1 but I've been satisfied with the results. I'm currently playing back HD footage using the HD component cables but last night I upgraded Premiere to 1.5.1 which gives me HDV support so I can begin editing footage.

No way around it though.. I still need a small cam! The search (and or wait) continues! Although the GS250 is starting to look tempting as long as the street price comes off a good bit of the MSRP.

Hi Tommy,

I watched the video shot by fx1 and downloaded to pc using sd format(downgrade). The quality of that sd actually is no better than my jvc gy-dv5000 with fujinon s20x6.4brm-sd lense. IIRC that sony claimed that sd video shot by fx1 would be better than other minidv camera.

BTW, why not buy a gs400 which is quite good if you need a small camera?

Regards
Leigh

Thats probably not the best way to compare the FX1 against other cams since its primarily a HD 1080i cam and video from the web can be misleading due to compression and individual editing preferences.

This week I'll be putting the FX1 alongside my VX2000 for comparsion and I will also pull out some DV953 and GS100 tapes as well.
