In as new condition - hardly used - works perfectly - no scratches - looks brand new and still in original box. Comes with extra Sony n970 battery, charger and original manual. Sony's HDR-AX2000E AVCHD PAL Camcorder makes for an impressive prosumer-level AVCHD camcorder. While less sophisticated than the HXR-NX5UE (its NXCAM pro counterpart), it marks a clear improvement from its HDV predecessor, the HDR-FX1000E. The camera's ability to capture HD and SD video in AVCHD and MPEG-2 formats along with the ability to save to solid state media is only one of the traits distinguishing it from its tape-based forebearer. Full 1920 x 1080 HD video, which can be recorded at 50i and 25p, is another. The footage can be saved to either a Memory Stick PRO Duo or SD/SDHC card, then easily downloaded to computer for editing via USB 2.0 interface. Along with the three 1/3" CMOS Exmor sensors and 20x 'G' lens from the FX1000 comes a new professional element: audio, in the form of dual XLR ports. This means direct input of balanced, pro-level microphones without the need for an XLR-to-mini adapter. Component, HDMI, and S-Video outputs are also available, allowing for direct connection with analog and digital displays. Another great pro feature is the three control rings around the lens, for iris, focus and zoom. The rings bring a more reliable, intuitive feel to image adjustment. When users select one of the (4) built-in neutral density filters, color bars, zebra display, and a live histogram, they have a perfect camcorder for documentaries, indie features, music videos, and a variety of other applications.
