Sooooo im done filming for the year now and im ready to move on to a different camera next year, dont know what it might be. so if you or someone you know wants this, i'll cut you a sweet deal.
sony fx7 hdv camcorder that comes with:
camera, lens hood, fat eyecup, 2 hour battery, 4 hour battery, ac adapter, charger with car adapater, impact .7x wide angle lens, remote, head cleaning tape, 6 new sony videographer grade hdv tapes, manual, 4pin to 2pin firewire cable, av cables and a fat stack of whatever stickers and swag i've got.
has 35 hours on the heads. body is in good condition. cosmetic blems on the handle are shown below. glass is in great condition.
the basic skinny on the camera: shoots HD 1080i, has good image control, has A HANDLE!, 2 record buttons, 3 zoom controls, 3 chips for great colors and good low light performance. very sharp lens that is 20x zoom. zoom and focus rings with an aperature dial. big 3.5 inch screen, good viewfinder. also has a 240fps slow mo record mode that i have yet to play with. basically, all you could want in a camera of this class.
check out my profile's latest videos for samples of what it can do.
my asking price for you locals is: $2100 picked up, $2130 shipped. I paid about 3500 for my setup last summer, so this a steal!
