I've experienced something similiar with my PD170 & VX2000. For whatever reason, under the same situations and set at the same lens aperture, my VX2000 just has more of a "punch" to it than my PD170.
There is nothing wrong with the picture of my PD170 and by itself it looks great, just in a side by side comparison, it looks a little neutral and less "punchy" if that makes sense to you guys.

Mics and the VX1000

I was wondering before I decide to buy a VX1000 (I'm looking if anyone is selling) if the Audio Technica AT897 will work with this camera. I had heard that it wouldn't but I don't see why not. Any help on the subject is much appreciated, thanks.

vx1000 is hands-down better in any well-lit outdoor situation. It's also a lot easier to get proper looking colors on the 1000, whereas it requires more fiddling around with on the 2000/2100.

I cannot agree with you there, Allen. At best it is equal to my PD150.

Sony DCR VX1000 record drum

I have a Sony DCR VX1000 and would like to know how to obtain the record drum part number and a resource to purchase said item, new. I've googled until my eyes glazed over, to no avail.

The recorded image is snowy with many, many pixel flakes.

I'm not an engineer, nor do I play one on TV. I'd love to replace the drum myself, as I've already had the camera apart and put back together successfully.

Any advise is MOST appreciated.

Thanks,

Kip Ross

Go here http://www.partstore.com/ModelNumber...ufacturerID=76 and enter dcr-vx1000, enter drum in the next page. It's $194.11.

Cheers,
Duane

Probably More Than Just the Drum

The record drum is just one part of many that are involved in the process. The recording and playback heads are the most likely parts to need replacing and the drum itself might not be faulty. Replacing and adjusting them is not something you can do at home, without the proper tools, test equipment and experience. You might be wasting money to buy a new drum. Better to take it to an authorized Sony repair shop and have a diagnosis made, before buying any parts.
