Look! I'm posting an actual video to my my "Video Blog." This project compares the video quality of my Nikon D5000 and Sony HDR - FX1. I eventually concluded that the the video quality of the D5000 could exceed that of the HDR-FX1 if it was equipped with the right lens. My 35 mm f/1.8 and 70 - 200 mm f/2.8 did very well but I found the kit lens to be a bit lacking.
