Cliff, maybe I don't understand you? The PDX-10 has the same still camera features as the TRV-950. It doesn't have bluetooth or the internet capabilities though.

Look at the user manual in the 'stickie' at the top of this forum for more PDX-10 info. http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...threadid=22998

Regarding the firmware "brain transplant," I wouldn't attempt it unless you consider your camera expendable....

Yep, I misspoke. I assumed that since there was no flash, there was no still camera.
There's too many differences between the two cameras that make me not want to try it.
If I could get a Sony repair facility to try it, I'd go for it. I suspect that they wouldn't have enought knowledge to undergo the transplant.
It would be nice if it were like a BMW that you could switch control chips for better performance.
If the cmos were accessible, I'd consider just swapping the chip, thereby keeping the original firmware intact, if it didn't work.
Oh well, I put far too much time researching this already.
Over and out.

Mine came with both large and small. That was about mid-year 2003.

Yes, the camera is supplied with both the regular and the wide hood. The regular hood has a removable cover but the wide hood does not. See page 4 of the brochure for included accessories:

Also worth noting that the wide hood comfortably houses a number of wide angle adaptors. I use the Century 0.65x which has a filter thread and a removable cover. The cover seems to be the only benefit of the smaller hood.

True. The wide hood works well with my .45x wide lens also - no vignetting. I even use it with the Sony high-grade 2x telephoto. It doesn't shade the lens at all, but does a nice job of concealing the ugly silver aluminum finish :-)

MTV's Making the Band and PDX10

Since were on this topic, I was watching MTV's Making the Band, with P. Diddy and lo and behold I saw during an episode that one of the guys was shooting with a PDX10.

I dunno if the whole show is show with a PDX10, but it would be interesting to find out.

950/pdx10 size

Do these two share the same body and mechanics?

I own a pdx10 and am looking at an underwater housing that is certified for the trv950, but not the pdx10...

Without the XLR box, the PDX is the same body as the 950. You might check with the diver members here about this, or visit one of the dv diving websites.

The only difference that comes to mind is that the TRV-950 has a pop-up flash for still photos but the PDX-10 does not. It has the mounting shoe for the XLR box in that location.

You might try starting a new topic about underwater housings for the TRV-950/PDX-10; it has been discussed here in the past.

I thought they were the same too, but the company selling the housing says the pdx10 is incompatible, although the trv950 is ceritfied.....

This is the Sony SPK-DVF5 which is only sold in Japan.

I did a scan here and found one person who has used the case sucessfully.

Anyone else using a pdx10 with one?

John,

"This is the Sony SPK-DVF5 which is only sold in Japan"

Just a quick searh on the Net would appear that;
The UK sell them online, as do Canada, so do a few other places.

Also UK Ebay have one at the moment,
