    Hi,
    I know a good videoprojector has this connectios: DVI, Component, VGA
    and SVHS.
    I'd like to purchase Sony FX1 and I'd like to know how can I connect
    my camera with my videoprojector. If I have use Component or SVHS
    connection, it would be a great frustration. I think I will see a bad
    image.
    Can you give me some info, please?
    thanks

    The YUV component connection from your camera will look fine, but the
    projector will be downscaling the camera's output quite a bit because it's
    only 1024x576 native.

    I'd try to to find a projector with at least 1280x720. There are plenty
    of them at decent prices.

    The Sanyo Z4 and Z5 are two...

    There are some somewhat better projectors at 1366x768.

    I don't have a BenQ PE7800 with which to test (it's an obsolete model
    at this point), so obviously I can't offer any sort of absolute
    guarantee on this, but I know of no reason why the Sony HDR-FX1 that
    you're considering shouldn't work perfectly well with the PE7800.

    You would want to use the three component RCA connectors for your
    hook-up. Try to use high-quality cables and try to keep them as short
    as possible, although I can appreciate that if the PE7800 is
    ceiling-mounted, you may have to go some distance.

    By the way, since you appear to be in Italy, which is a 50 Hz PAL
    country, you would want to get the 50 Hz HDR-FX1E, not the 60 Hz
    HDR-FX1, although either will work with the PE7800.

    Good luck!
