  • Abstract:  In my review of the Sony HVR-V1U camcorder last September (click here), I discussed in detail the technical features of Sonys breakthrough 3-CMOS 24p HDV camcorder. But what a person behind the viewfinder wants to know is, how does it han...

  • Abstract:  The V1U allows you to customize dozens of critical settings that impact camcorder operation, performance, and image quality. Sony even makes it easy for you to save all of your custom settings on a Memory Stick for easy transfer to another unit. Other ...

  • Abstract:  Pro video production has never been more affordable nor more independent than it is today, and it appears that production tools are only going to become less expensive and more powerful as time goes on. Ironically, just as affordable production in t...

  • Abstract:  A new generation of high-definition camcorder is soon to hit the streets, and if initial trial tests of the Sony HVR-V1U are any indicator of what’s to come, hang on to your production budget. Over the course of several weeks, I shot some extreme sp...

  • Sonys HVR-V1 is the most comfortable handheld HDV camcorder Ive used, as its the size and weight of a PD150. It makes very sharp pictures (as long as you dont boost gain in progressive) in 60i, 24p, and 30p, and has the best status displays availab...

  • The iris ring on the lens. The settings store to memory stick. HDMI output. Smooth slow motion recording. The price.
  • Its a camera you hold in front of your face. Battery charged on camera. Would like a full iris ring on the lens.
  • The medium-sized HDV market is about to become awash with fabulous new camcorders and Sony is quick off the block with the HVRV1. This is being touted as the replacement for Sonys legendary PD-150, which was the workhorse for so many filmmakers.The V1...

  • V1EDie HVR-V1E produziert für eine CMOS-Cam ein erstaunlich scharfes Bild und stellt somit eine interessante Ergänzung der Pro-HDV-Cams von Sony dar. Da die Strassenpreise von V1 und Z1 fast auf gleichem Niveau knapp unter 5.000,- Euro liegen, sollte ...
