Digital Camera II: The Sequel

SAN FRANCISCO (07/27/2000) - It's not a lunch meeting at Spago that's exciting indy directors. It's a camera -- the DCR-VX2000 from Sony Corp. (800/222-7669, http://www.sel.sony.com). This US$3,000 mini-DV camcorder packs plenty of wallop for aspiring filmmakers with visions of Ben Hur but budgets more like The Blair Witch Project's. The VX2000 boasts a redesigned 3-CCD pickup chip set -- the signal-processing chips that bolster camera resolution -- and a 58mm aspherical lens, which sharpens focus. When you consider its 200,000-color pixel LCD display and FireWire connectivity, the VX2000 seems to do everything -- except maybe write your script.
