I dont see a reason the Fx1 wouldnt be good for wedding shots aside from the lack of xlr. I have had friends that are known to mic the groom, you might want to grab a beachtek if you wanna get nuts with the audio for the weddings.

Me Very Raw
Me real raw in this field, can u plz tell me wot a Beachtek is.

Pardon me

It a peice of equipment you can pruchase that allows you to use proffesional audio equipment that use a type of plug named XLR on the HDR-fx1's Mic which is a 1/8 sterio mini plug.

Wot PC, Wot Card
Thanks Mack for the prompt reply, now plz tell me wot type of a PC do i need for the Post Editing stuff and wot Capture card is needed to get yhe shot footage into the PC.

PC needs to be as fast as possible. Lots of memory - lots of disk space. Have one disk system for capturing, another as a work/rendering disk.

If you're capturing from a FX1 - all you need is firewire and I'd be amazed if you can buy a decent computer without firewire.

To be exact you need 3ghz or proccessing power and I would say about 2gb of RAM atleast.

Christopher Cruz August 21st, 2006 04:53 PM

A Dual Core 3.0ghz with 1gb of Ram has been working out perfectly for me and should be fine for your needs.

Vicky Madhok August 21st, 2006 10:08 PM

Display card, capture card etc???
One more question is wot Display card is needed for the HD thing and also there are some cards available like the Edius NX etc, are they needed aswell? and wots the best software for Editing? i got a copy of Sony Vegas 6 and also a copy of Ulead Video Studio Plus 10, plz enlighten me, i know i am asking a lot of Question but then this is the best Forum with the many bright Videographers on.

Greetings from INDIA
Thanking U in advance

I dont think Ulead will cut it, Vegas should alot of Sony users love Vegas. I dont know much about video cards but I would say you need atleast 128mb video card but I would recommend 256mb.
