    VX1000 TLC

    Hey whatsup, I've been a TRV900 filmer for a long while and love the camera and it's treated me really good. I've just bought a VX1000 MK1 and am psyched to get out there and film. My VX1000 is in a really decent condition, but while fiddling around with it on the first couple of times of using it I have managed to break the viewfinder ribbon. It's totally my fault mind, I looked into the problem and realised that you have to be super gentle with the viewfinder and people say don't push it too far upright. My bad. My TRV could handle that, but now I know. Maybe I've just been lucky with my past cam, but it seems the Vx is a whole load more fragile! I'm stoked for this though, as it will feel all the better for fixing it and getting some sick footy. Like fixing up an old car or something... I was just wondering if any experience users here could hit me up with the top do's and don'ts to try and look after this cam and keeping it running the best it can. Aside from the obvious 'don't capture from it', and now 'be gentle with the viewfinder' - I'm basically a newby. And being from London, I'm never going to experience (proper) freezing temperatures, which is another thing I have read is bad for the cam. Struggling to find a one-stop thread for this though so help me out my dudes.
