question

hi can i record video on sd card?
Asked by: Anonymous
In order to do record to solid state digital media like an SD card, you would need to use an external recorder for the camera itself can only record to tape. I would suggest the Atomos Ninja Blade 5 HDMI On-Camera Monitor & Recorder (Full Version) B&H # ATNB5M. Not only is it an external recorder but it is a very handy monitor as well. It is an excellent solution for what you are wishing to do.

question

Can I playback tapes in this camera that was recorded in a fx1000?
Asked by: Anonymous
I will answer with a qualified yes. Normally this should not be a problem. Possibly there will be some misalignment of the tape between the cameras or other issue but it should work as you desire.

question

How can I change out the internal battery? It is dead and I lose all my settings whenever I change camera batteries.
Asked by: Anonymous
If the internal battery is dead, trying plugging the camera into AC for 24 hours with the power switch OFF. This will do the trick if the battery has any life left. Unfortunately I cannot find any information regarding user replacement of the internal battery. Therefore I have to conclude the battery is not user replaceable. Please contact your local service center that handles Sony camcorders.

question

Will this camera capture/ingest tapes previously recorded on another camera? For example, would it be capable of capturing standard definition material shot in DVCAM mode on my DSR-PDX10? (I'm asking because my PDX10 just broke and I'm looking for something to replace it with that's still capable of reading its MiniDV tapes.)
Asked by: Alex R.
I purchased a Z7U from B&H a few months back and to date I have had no problems using it to play back and edit from tapes recorded in other cameras. In fact, I had sold my Canon XL2 and was very pleased to discover how well the Z7U handles the countless miniDV tapes I have containing footage shot with the XL2. The only trick I'm trying to figure out is whether or not there's some way of getting the Z7U to transfer the contents of the tape to the CF card in the attached digital recording unit. While that's not an absolute necessity for me, it would be helpful at times.
