Sony HXR-MC2000E

 

I found the camera quite easy to use. This is my first pro camera having used four handy cams all being Sony's.

The eye piece could extend a little more. I found it quite tight to get it into viewing sight of subject. Half an inch more would have helped me.

Very easy to set up and use. Quality is impeccable both of construction and video quality

Bit on the heavy side. A start button on the left hand side would also be an asset - I find that when using on a tripod I am fumbling either round the right side or the top handle for the button. If the shoulder pad was made as a snap on, this could be...

Sony HXR-MC2000E

 

If filming a performance, when the lights go down after a scene then come back up, the auto focus seems to get confused and will not focus on the newly lit scene for a few moments.

Looks the part

Bad in any other mode but shoulder mount. Does not like tripods ( bad balance) Viewer far too small > I have to attach a monitor, Too heavy in comparison with whats on the market. Single mike input bad feature.

Sony Professional HD Camcorder representing great value for the price. HD picture quality is fantastic. AVCHD format works perfectly with Sony Vegas editing software. Shoulder mount camera is not too heavy and feels comfortable. Integral hard drive...

more connections for external sound.
