      didn’t you already start a thread about this same issue? Is there anything specific you want to know? If not, compare the cameras on

      It seems likeyou’d paying for an awful lot of plastic if you go with the hd1000u…The soulder mount design is nice, but I don’t think it’s worth it. Also, from what I can tell, it only has1 CMOS with nomanual zoom which basically makes it more like a consumer camera wrapped in a big plastc case….

      If you can get the hd1000u for under $1000, I say go for it. It will at least serve as a semi-decent back-up camera when you get a real camera…(it’s a very simple camera)

      The FX 7 will give youmore professional control with a better picture and probably handle better in low light situations then the hd1000u.

      Some websites say the hd1000u has a minimumillumination of 0 lux…this is not correct. It is more like 4 lux. The B&H photo specs verified that it was 4 lux, but it also said it had a sensitivity of 11 lux….that doesn’t sound good. (i find it interesting that B&H photo lists this sensitivity spec for the hd 1000u, but not other models like the fx7,z1u,gl2,xl-etc..?) My guess is that this is their way of saying “hey, this camera only has 1 cmos and is going to act like it…..”
