Sony DCR-VX1000 Camcorder Review - Sony MiniDV Camcorders

 

The DCR-VX1000 uses the MiniDV format and has a MSRP of $4199. The VX1000 is considered to be a professional camcorder and, though it was released many years ago, remains one of the best digital camcorders being sold.

Good used buy, if price is right!

 

This was the worlds first minidv camcorder, the one that set the mould (compare it to the present day vx2100 and canon xm2, nit an awful lot has changed). Although edging on 9 years old this camera makes a solid used buy, provided the condition of the ...
