SimplyDV Review: Sony DCR-VX2100 DV Camcorder

 

The VX2100 not only produces images and sound to the required standard, it handles beautifully and possesses a comprehensive set of input and output options. Colour bar and zebra pattern circuits are welcome, as is the built-in two-step ND filter and...

Still not significantly different from the VX2000. Lack of Memory Stick PRO and USB will disappoint some users expecting much more from this model, which appears to be a Sony stop-gap prior to the much hoped-for release of a new, fully-featured pro...

Great handling and ergonomics, lovely sturdily-built camera to use in hand-held and on the tripod. LCD screen could do with being a bit bigger, viewfinder eyepiece needs to be much more rigid for proper hand-held and tripod use. Can't fault image and...

image quality

 

Sony DCR-VX

Great interlaced video quality; outstanding low-light performance; impressive battery life; smart lens cap.

No 24P or HD video; no professional audio connections or controls; no focus marks.

This three-chip camera offers excellent video quality to amateurs, but it's not ready for professional prime time.

With the Sony Handycam DCR-VX2100 Mini DV Digital Camcorder clearer video with more lifelike color can be captured by increasing the CCD's sensitivity to light. It provides exceptional detail and clarity that reduces optical distortion, and provides...

Sony Camcorder Review: DCR-VX2100 Camcorder

 

If you're thinking about stepping up to the improved imagery that only three-chip cameras offer, Sony has just upgraded their popular DCR-VX2000 Mini DV Camcorder by 100. Featuring improved low-light capabilities, in-creased signal-to-noise ratio and a...

High resolution, sharp image ; Great low-light performance ; Beautiful colors

No XLR Inputs

Polished and professional, the VX2100 is still the fine camera that it has always been, with only incremental improvements over the VX2000.

In high key situations, you can still see texture in highlights that approach pure white. There is a very slight color bleeding between deeply saturated colors, particularly reds and greens, but not any more than expected for the DV format. Auto white...

This is the first semi-pro (or amature?) camera i've bought, and all my initial worries from reviews I read were soon swept under the carpet. I mainly use it for indoor events, which tend to be quite dark. The VX2100 picks out every bit of detail and...
