Difference between PDX10 and TRV 950?

I'm sure this has been asked countless times before, but what are the major differences between the two cameras?

Thanks for your time

Trevor

Major differences:

XLR audio inputs module on PDX10
14-bit video processing in PDX10
Included large hood with PDX10
DVCAM recording with PDX10
Better 16:9 mode PDX10

Built in flash on '950
Bluetooth and IP on '950 (I think)

Wow, really? The 950 doesn't have the 14-bit video processing? That seems like a significant difference.

Ha! That is not real setup. It DIGITALLY records with a fake added luma. Very weird.

Does that allow you live stream an image to a web server using a bluetooth equipped cell phone? Even if it's a still image, great for mobile webcasting of events as they happen...

Hi,

The 950 has 14-bit DXP. Most Sony Megapixels camcorder has this chip.

Ignacio,

Go to the Sony Website.

Look up the TRV-950. Click on specs. Then, download the .pdf file with the specs.

It is noted in the .pdf file that the image processing is 14Bit.

Ignacio,

I think the info is pretty obscure.

Plus, at least you did not receive your camcorder and then think the headphones were broken for a week because the volume output to them was turned all the way down....um...like some others on this forum....;-)
