There are four of these Sony HDR AX-2000 camcorders available for our class (200-300 level production classes) to check out for use. It’s a lot like the Sony FX 1000, but it records onto an SD card rather than videotape. Besides the convenience of the record media, it’s a lighter weight camera, and might be more fun to use with a Flowpod than the heavier Canon XH A1 or the Sony FX-1000.
