HVR-MRC1 with the FX1000
 
Okay, I sprung for the card recorder and purchased two 133x CF cards.

The only way I can make it work with the FX1000 is to run it in follow mode with a tape running simultaneously.

The book says that it will only work in follow mode with the FX1000.

Is there a setting that will make it work without a tape in the FX1000?

Also, I'm trying to figure out a way to avoid buying the $200.00 bracket that Sony has for mounting it on the trial mount of the camera. Right now, when I'm shooting interviews, I have a Rycote hot shoe extension that holds me light and my shotgun mic. If I could find a cheaper tripod mount for the MRC1K, that would be great.

Thanks!

Get the following bracket instead:

you can get it to work without tape by pressing the two record buttons(the record button and the one next to it) on the mrc at the same time.
