Sony HDR-FX1000, In Japan Now

This morning Sony announced the arrival of a new HDV camera (tape based in 1440x1080i60), the HDR-FX1000. 
Even if our new FX1000 keeps the same look as the previous generation FX, Sony decided improve their camera with some nice improvements like a new G Lens that provides better quality images also tuned by the Exmor image processor and the “3 Clear Bit CMOS sensor”, and a 20x optical zoom, and the possibility to have a 24p and 30p mode.

If there are any doubts that this camera is a good product for the average Joe or Indy reporter, we still argue that tapes are a thing of the past due to their 27MBps limitation, this camera still provies 1440×1080 and no 1920×1080 or 1280×720, a 720/60p would be wonderful. Sold roughly for around 2500€ in Japan you should MOST probably switch to a P2 camera if you’re really serious about video.

Interestingly, Japanese TV journalists mainly use Sony FX cameras on the go while many in the US use the P2 HVX200 (HBO, TV series: the 4400, Stargate Atlantis…)
