Thanks for the informative Sony CX900 video.

I'd really like to know about the quality of the EVF on this camera.  For outdoor bird photography I always need to use the EVF on my PJ760.  I think it is mediocre at best.

Is the EVF on the CX900 better than on the PJ760?  If so, how much better?

Does someone besides Sony have a better EVF on a pro-sumer level camcorder?  EVF and easy manual focus are the main features I'm looking for in my next birding camcorder. (Zoom and steady shot are also crucial, but plenty good for me on the PJ760.)

Thanks again.

Hi Dale -

I think you will find that SONY has upgraded the EVF of the HDR CX900:
The HDR-CX900 provides a high contrast 0.39" OLED Tru-Finder EVF which reproduces rich color and deep blacks. The optical design of the EVF utilizes four dual-surface aspherical lenses, allowing for a 33° wide viewing angle that is clear from edge-to-edge of the viewfinder.
