I use/own a FX1 and I love this camera. The images in HD are outstanding so no problem there. SD is not bad either. It has all of the manual setting you’ll need for any situation and the full auto mode has not let me down when I’ve used it in the past. The more I use it the more I realize this is one of the best cameras [HDV] out there. I think you will want to add a mic for audio because the onboard mic is average at best.
The 720p vs 1080i is overkill.
Once you see HDV footage on an HDTV you’ll know.
If you can, rent one first and use the hell out of it for a day or two.
