I'm new to this forum, so oorry if this is not the right place for this post. If anyone can help me, I just got a the Sony HDR-FX1 HDV (4.6 lbs, plus abttery) camcorder and was wondering if anyone has a formula for setting up this combo.

Thanks,

Hi Paul, I do know that there is a standard definition NTSC singnal out so getting an image to your LCD should'nt be an issue.

I was only concerned about the physical compatabilty, such as is the FX1 too heavy? How to setup and balance the camera, etc.

Thanks

Paul,

The spec sheet says that the Max. weight for the Jr. is 4 Lbs. Think Palmcorder.
At best the Sony will invert, at worst the gimble will snap.

Sorry,

Bill

You definitely want the Flyer, it is perfect for the FX1u and you will really appreciate the large monitor and ability to power a Bartech for the pro shots.
You will also be able to fly the Arri 235 and DVCPRO50/HD cams for paying gigs.
