Beating the crap out of the FX1 !

I just came from a 3 day vacation to Yosemite to which I took my FX1. I shot almost 3 hours of HDV in every possible situation day night fog, rain snow, you name it.
I put the poor camera thru moist, rain, snow, 6200+ feet of elevation and under 30F cold. For all protection I had a poncho over me and the camera.... guess what, nothing ever happened to the camera, it performed perfect and I think the results were outstanding! I might post some footage online during the week if people are interested.

definately!

I'm still in the deciding proces. It's between the FX1 and the VX2100.

So come on - convince me to use the extra money and go HDV!

Gimme a couple of days, we are rounding up November sweeps and that has kept me at the station more than I would like to. But they will be up before the weekend.
