    I don't (think I) have a comparrison picture of the V1/FX7 and the Z1/FX1. But the new ones are slightly notably smaller. - and that hard drive (which I was actually referign to) is tiny!

    They are much bigger than the A1 - and I'd be hesitant to use the XLR block of the A1 snowboarding as the mount isn't super strong, plus the benefits of a handle for shooting on teh slops is a big plus. (I ski, and used to shoot skiing with a XM1/GL1)

    Yes the FX7 will be cheaper than the V1 - there's a photo in one of the galleries of an approximate pricelist.

    oh wow, that's on the sony site? looking at it now, it's certainly a neat toy.


    I wonder if the record speed(dunno how to call that- sony's record buttons are fast-) is as fast on 24p as the pd170 is....

    mikko?

    No, they will be bought by completely different consumers I should think.

    yeah...good for high quality weddings and events.

    but im curious about the 24p on this.

    it sure costs buttload though.


    Does anyone know if the record button hit speed on this thing is fast? I'm thinking it should be since it's direct to disk as well... and ..should be fast... anyone?
