The next model DCR VX2000 retails fro $3100. Why is the VX1000 better?

-- Thomas G. (, December 26, 2000.

Good question did anyone ever answer???

-- richard (, June 27, 2001.

This is the answer to the question of why is the VX1000 better. It is not. The VX2000 has a street price of $2500. In it's press release, Sony says that the signal to noise of the VX2000 is twice as good as the 1000, and that is very significant. In addition, it has many more excellent features.

-- Bob Craige (, July 12, 2001.

Actually, you can get a brand new DCR-VX2000 for $1875 (see vx2000& ) Yeah, I know it's way too long a URL. I'm actually trying to find a DCR-VX100 - if I can get one for around $900, I'll buy it, but most people's prices on them are close to what you can get a 2000 for, so I might just wind up shelling out a few extra bucks to get the new and improved vx2000 (which also has a convenient fold-out LCD screen that the VX1000 doesn't have.

-- Russell Tripp (, July 25, 2001.

just randomly seraching for a used vx1000 and i came across this.. i thought id post, i doubt ill ever be back to re read it, so... the vx1000 ccd's are bigger, allowing more color to be read.. also the lens mounting is different so with the vx1000, you get more "wide"angle. for instance, on century optics .3x ultra wide angle lens, youll see something like 165 degrees whereas with the vx2000, you would only see 153 degrees.. with both cameras you can get an unmatchable picture. but personally, im looking for the vx1000, which by the way goes for close to one grand on ebay, so you might want to reconsider your price...just a helpful suggestion.

-- leeaaron (, January 21, 2002.

I also think that the vx1000 is better. There may be a couple of modified things on it, but the only big upgrade is the lcd screen. I am also looking for a vx1000, so if anyone is selling THAT WORKS and under or around $1000 you can email me at

I`m looking for a vx1000. i`ll spend $1000. I need it working and with the original pieces that came with it. Please i need it quick cause i have a ultra fisheye and i`m a filmer for josh kalis.

-- chris scheidell (, January 21, 2003.

Is that true? Kalis is unbelievable. Love Park RIP. Im buying a vx1000.

-- Matthew Johnson (, February 02, 2003.

youre a liar, pros dont have their own filmer to film them only, there is no such thing as a 'josh kalis filmer' and if there was he would already have a vx1000 and ouwldnt want to buy one.

-- liar (, March 28, 2003.

that is true, they would have a camera already

-- Stephen Marino (, April 08, 2003.

I'm about to have the same problem as he does, I foudna nice deal on a MKI bayonette for the vx1 but I don't have a vx 1 and only have enough money saved up for like half of a vx 1 but I can afford the lens right now and it's a nice deal so I may end up taking it.

Also when he said he was a filmer for josh kalis it could mean he's going on a filming trip with him or he films kalis when he's in the area. I don't think he meant he follows him all over the place. So Kali was probably skating near him so he needed a vx asap before kalis got there.

If anyone know people around malaysia that have a vx1000 pls let me know

-- ridhwan (, July 29, 2003.

Yeah i agree with alot of thoughs other people about which is better a vx1000 or a vx2000, and i would say it would have to be a vx1000. just because the sound it alot better and the lens on it goes alot wider then a vx2000. We go skating alot with these cameras, so i know which looks better. So ive been wanting one for along time now and i havent found any good deals. so if anyone is looking to sell one under 1000$ then please recomend me.

VX-1000 for sale........including: (1)battery charger, (3)batteries, (1) fisheye lens, (1) hard case, (1) head cleaning tape, (1)84" tripod (optional). I had bought it brand new in 1999 during a college filming course in Minnesota. I put it away until I got married 2 years ago and then when I had my first kid 1 year ago. So I've probably used it to record between 11 to 15 tapes. Still in great shape (video and audio). Now that I'm a family man I need something a little more simple and compact. If I can't find a new home for the VX within a week I'm putting it on E-Bay. I'm asking $1,000 w/o the tripod and $1,100 with the tripod. I currently live in Southern Oregon. If you have any questions or want pictures just e-mail me. Thanks, Jason

Hi - I have a Sony DCR VX1000 to sell. I'm upgrading to the 2100 and would like to realise a little extra cash. I've used it sporadically over the last 5 years. It's always travelled in a steel carry case - so as a result is in extremely good condition and perfect working order. It has the remote control, wide angle lens, manual, charger, carry strap, lens hood and eye shade plus a spare battery as well. It's UK PAL model. I'd be looking for a near offer to 650.

well i'm looking for one too. i'm just loking at this list, though, and if you guys check out ebay, there's quite a few 1000's all right around 500 dollars. shipping might be up to 50 bucks, but that's a lot better than paying 1000.

anyway, my question is... how much is a fisheye, that's gonna work, but not tooo expensive?
