Sony HVR-V1U


$4,800.00 Released September, 2006

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Built-in microphone gathers sound well from ambient sources or close-ups. High-quality picture in normal to bright lighting, sharp and clear. Design is comfortable to hold while operating, won't tire you out.

The Cons:Low light recording is poor - lots of grain, needs additional lighting. The camera itself produces noise when using the Ultra low light settings. Microphone isn't great at filtering surrounding audio or capturing dialog from a distant target.

Not for your average YouTube movie, this professional level HD camcorder is the first to capture video at 24P, that is 24 frames per second at 1080p resolution.  Amateur cinematographers can now produce that film-look that normal cameras simply can't produce.

Omar: #sony_hvr_v1u I know I'd never come close to making use of what this camera could offer, but somewhere in the back of my head, I have a feeling that I'd become the next Scorsese if I just had the right equipment. Sep 19, 06
