Hi guys!

I am a newbie around here. Here I go...

I recently purchased a Sony FX-1 which I love but was upset it had no XLR's and some of the other features the Z1U's have. I couldn't pass up the deal for the FX1 when I bought it from Sony. Basically it was 1200 off the sell price. I know I can get a aftermarket adaptor for the mics like B*chtek.

Anyways, I found this offer on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/...ory=107938&rd=1 and was wondering if it would be a good buy??? I know when you buy a used camera you should look at how many hours of use it had...whats a good average?

Thanks for your time!!!!

Phil

The newer z1u is better then the first models. People may be trying to dump an old Z1u.
