Manfrotto/Bogen have a good range of high quality inexpensive tripods. I use a 501 fluid head on Carbon Pro legs with my XL1 and it works well. The Legs are a bit pricey as they ar made of carbon fibre, but there are cheaper alternatives available

Cartoni has a good set of sticks for the smaller cameras. The model is called "action pro".

I got mine for $650, with a decent carry bag.

Theyre lightweight, with a pretty smooth head.

vx2000 & trv900 compatibility

I currently own a trv900 and a trv 310 digital 8mm (which is not used for capture much).
I am looking into purchasing a vx2000 to go with my 900.
What are the opinions on how the two would work together in post?
I have heard differing opinions as to how a scene from one camera would blend with a scene shot on the other camera. Some saying the 2000's image in low light is so much better than the 900's that it would be quite noticable. Others offer that if one were to use the 900 shooting wide and the 2000 on closer shots the difference is very little.
Thanks for any advice from anyone with experience using these two models.
Jeff

Buying a DCR-VX2000

Getting ready to buy. Looking at B&H, Camera World. Armato's and Adorama. Looking for the good and bad stories from others who have had dealings with the above. Maybe the names of salespeople who where great to deal with. Thanks

They're all fine. If you go with Adorama, say hi to Barry Zilberschlag for me.

The only one I have used from those you list is B&H and I've never had a problem with them. In fact I just placed an order for several items about 5 minutes ago.

preamp and the vx2000

just wondering if anyone had any experience with using a mic preamp with the vx2000??? just read an article that the signal to noise ratio can be GREATLY reduced by using a mic preamp.

william

ps right now i'm using a studio1 xlr adapter with an AT815b mic and it sounds pretty good, but preamps aren't that expensive... so i was just wondering?

as a non-american: does it make sense to ask for a discount at the B&H, ZGC etc. or are all prices usually fixed?

Cheers,

I purchased a vx2000 online from B&H on Wed the 27th. of Feb.
It still has not left B&H.
Is this normal for them to wait so long to ship?
Their website said the vx2000 was in stock, and a rep called from B&H to confirm that I did submit an online order.

Mine took 4 days from New York to Missouri standard delivery. Get the tracking number so you can track the movement.

VX2000 and Sennheiser MKE-6/beachtek

I have had pretty noisy results using my VX2000 and the beachtec adapter with my MKE-6 lav and shotgun mic. I had heard reports of low level coming from the mic and now I can confirm that. I am looking into a portable field mixer and pre-amp

I also saw that the BBC is making a better XLR box and will modify your V to bypass the pre-amps.

I wonder if just using a pre-amp and going line in rather than mic in would bypass the pre-amps?
