Pretty excited

Just had to tell someone, I am ordering my second HD1000u this week when B&H re-opens and am pretty psyched about it. I am also ordering a pelican case (1640) so they can both be in the same case. Very excited....

Hope you enjoy!

Ever think about supplementing with the Sony HDR-HC9? It's got the exact same innards, yet about $900 less. Might be a good second camera choice...

In this case, I am purchasing it to use for a specific client and the body counts. I actually picked up some extra work specifically to cover this expense, so I am not too worried about the $900 extra. After this purchase, I hope to upgrade to an i7 system and get a primera bravo II, then my next focus is to transition to EX3's within the next 1-1.5 yrs but we will see where it all goes...

For now, I am psyched to be getting another HD1000U.

I have three Sony's, and the HC9 is an excellent third camera for me.

I think it delivers a better image than the HD1000u. I don't really know why, but stuff out of the HC9 looks better (the HC9 is a newer model, the HD1000u is more like a HC7, I think).

And the HC9 is a quieter camera than the HD1000u. The HD1000u has a hollow plastic body and the zoom makes noise (I hardly use it these days). But you have to be careful not to tap on the body of the camera with your fingers. If you're using a shotgun, that sound can be picked up. Strategic use of the soft side of velcro can help dampen such sounds.

My "A" camera is the FX1000, which is serving me very well.

But here's a real advantage to the HC9: size!

On a recent shoot, I was able to get that camera into a place that would have thrown me out with anything bigger. I always carry the HC9 for flexibility. You can look like a consumer and shoot like a prosumer with the HC9.

Yes, but the HC7 and HC9 are identical except for the paint job.

I think that the HC9 has peaking and the HD1000U does not. I'll have to check that out. I've been using the HD1000U for a game show I've been shooting and it is great to have the two shoes for a light and my wireless, but the image out of my FX1000 is far better of course.

Excellent catch! The HC9 does indeed have peaking, which neither the HC7 nor the HD1000 do.

There were several minor feature changes/improvements on the HC9 over the HC7 when released, and while it's hard to know exactly WHY, the HC9 did seem to produce slightly better image quality - probably minor firmware tweaks...

Maybe then it is chance to put HC9 firmware in HD1000 cam. While hardware is the same it doesn't seem so dificult :) Any info?
