The only reason I would get it is to have better and faster tape transport than the camera, but someone already bought one and said it is no faster than the camera, so it seems like they took the fX1 transport and put it in this box, you might as well get another FX1 for that since it cost almost as much as an FX1.

I bought one, simply to be able to have the deck to work with. It's great with the battery component, and I'm happy w/it. But, it is close to the price of the FX 1...and it's basically a camera without the lens.

Is it out yet?

heath

ps-Decks are great on heads compared to cameras, when it comes to multiple rewinding, fast forwarding, etc.

I believe so. I got mine straight from a dealer Sony sent us to as part of a package we bought. (Bandpro)

I'm of the mind to spend the money on a good deck, though many would argue money spent a "camera without the lens" that costs as much as an FX1 is better spent on another FX1. What are your thoughts, Spot?

Well...for me, it's compact, and although that's important, I can see that for most folks, a second cam would be more worthwhile. I mean, how often do we REALLY use decks any more, other than the shoot, and one time print to hard drive, and maybe one time print to cam/deck again? And since you can't deliver HDV to anything yet, there is no argument that you'll be making dubs or anything like that. So...second cam would likely be my go-for if I didn't have other reasoning. I'm doing so many roadshows for VASST, taking a cam didn't make as much sense for me, and because I needed the extra monitor, etc, plus it doubles for DV as an external monitor.

Can't deck handle bigger casettes if you want to print longer than hour master in hdv (or dv/dvcam)?
Another use might be dub recording while shooting to avoid tape drop outs.

Toke, this deck is for Mini cassettes only, it will not accept the full-size cassettes.

chris,

you are right, but when you open the silver "door" to put the cassette, it's very visible that - probably in nearest feature IT WILL handle bigger cassettes. the space and SHAPE of that inner "surroundings" of the tape "mouth" is in my opinion just made for it. maybe next model with same body will have that option. (or maybe even this one with HOMEMADE adaptation :))).

Je je je I am sure that if someone gets away with that it will happen in Poland first! You are the guy that dissasembled a new FX1 to adapt other lenses to it?

i'm sorry to tell you, but first dissasembling was in italy!
not in poland. the guy who dissasembled his fx was matteo.

ignacio, i know that you already know this site, but for others: check matteo's site.

http://www.eidomedia.com/hdv

i'm still not ready with my dissasembling site. (i'm dissasembling not FX, but Z1. :)

and WHEN and IF dissasembling of player/recorder happens - of course, will send a link to it.
thanks,

filip

Amazing!

So even sony does not believe that hdv would be master format or else they have decided that "There shall be no av-programs longer than one hour!"
Behold!
