HC-X900M and the HC-X900, any difference?
Thanks in advance.
The stop start recording and zoom buttons on the TM900 LCD are absent from the X900. If like me you use these buttons to switch between manual focus and iris to adjust exposure when your right hand is occupied holding the camera still and rotating the lens focus, then without these physical buttons you need to use the X900's substitute for them which is.. wait for it.. yet more icons on the LCD screen! Unfortunately showing these icons means the icons to switch between focus, WB, shutter and iris are not on screen, it's one or the other, no way to make a quick scene adjustment without changing the menu display, this was a MAJOR problem while filming.
I really would like to know if I was just unlucky with what might have been two faulty ones from the same batch, a very early batch, they came from Europe but not gray imports, genuine UK models.
