Sorry, I should have specified that it is not a VX-2000 info page. The video (soon to come) and still photographs were all taken with a VX-2000. I figured that there was enough info sites about the VX-2000 and more people would be interested in seeing what a VX-2000 can do. Sorry for the misdirection.

Hello relishman....

try to optimize your pics (for a fast page opening)....

You can get the same quality (or better) with a 20% of the actual pics size...You can do that with Adobe Image Ready or similar...Try to use jpg at 80%, and ever deinterlace the interlace pics.....

Good Luck

N.

ive seen that before...thats not quite what I was talking about. THis would just be a 58mm screw on adapter, that would have a manual focus ring on it. It would have its own peice of glass in it to focus with...it would just be ana adapter that allowed more precise focusing....you wouldnt have to use the servo controlled focus ring on the camera...

VX2000 Hiss... Can I bypass it by...

*Say I was to do an interview.

Enviorment: Room

Equipment: VX2000 a wireless microphone setup. No XLR adapters just striaght plug into the mini mic plug.

*And when editing the interview on computer I added an background audio track.. Would this background audio track make the hiss not noticeable? or is the hiss so bad to the extent that you can hear it off of the speakers voice?

if doing a interview in a room -IMO
1) hard wire your lav.. use wireless are last resort
2) use AGC = hiss not noticeable

No, there is no difference in image quality. Some people in America prefer to shoot in PAL because that is what their editing house likes. Some like NTSC, some like PAL.
Generally speaking, if you are American you want the vx2000, European/Australian then you want the vx2000e.

For used/broken vx1000/vx2000 's you may want to try ebay.com or ebay.co.uk

Or would it just be alot of trouble with it?

Hold up there, there's a big difference between the 2. Pal is higher resolution and lower frame rate. The reason some americans shoot on PAL is because of the lower frame rates, some film transfer places prefer the PAL to transfer to film(but not all). If your in Europe then shoot PAL, its the standard there. If you buy a NTSC camera for Europe your material is NTSC, which won't play on PAL equipment(your TV, your VCR etc.) PAL is the standard in Europe and there really is no good reason to shoot NTSC there. Your just gonna cause yourself grief. If you want to show your NTSC material on TV there your going to have to convert it to PAL anyways, so why not just shoot on PAL.


Hope this helps,
Mark

Just so you know, PAL is 625 lines a frame at 25 frames per second. While NTSC is 525 at 29.97 per second.

Here's a cool page on the standards and how they convert the two.

I don't think you can really construct optics like that (but I would never say never). You would have to add some form off matte to focus the original optics on an then add new optics beyond that matte. The matte being the new focal plane. I think this actually requires three lenses. The original, one to focus on the matte and one that has real focus rings (this is exactly the principle of the mini35).
