The Sony Firewire Problem
if you were looking for such a problem, then probably you are in deep sh***. i am a proud owner of a sony dsr-pdx10p and i'm very happy with it. it is great for shooting. and i have another cam wich is panasonic md9000 which i use to capture the movies i shoot. when it comes to plugging and unplugging, i'm very messy. still, i never had problems connecting the panasonic. but while using the sony for capturing, after a couple of uses, it seemed that the firewire jack got burned (i don't know how or why) but after lots of readings i found out that it is a common problem with sony, and it costs about 300$ to fix it.
it is very wierd that the sony guys don't care about this problem.
and if ur sony's firewire still works, be VERY CAREFUL, this is serious. i never believed that a firewire could actually "die" until mine got burned.
