Sony DCR-SD1000E

The Sony HVR-HD1000P is a PAL HDV camcorder specifically designed for videographers looking for an affordable shoulder-mounted camera. Ideal for event work and wedding videography, the camera is equipped with a ClearVid CMOS sensor, capable of recording 1080i high definition footage on a standard MiniDV tape! Additionally, the HVR-HD1000P comes fitted with a 10x Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar lens with Super SteadyShotTM image stabilization, ensuring operators get the perfect shot every time. These features make the HVR-HD1000P a welcome addition to the already proven line of Sony professional HDV products.



Professional Shoulder-Mounted Design


To meet the widening demand of event videography such as weddings and concerts, the HVR-HD1000P comes in a shoulder-mounted design, without carrying the large price tag of traditional ENG cameras. The utilitarian benefit of this style camcorder is matched by its professional appearance on the job.



Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization


The HVR-HD1000P comes fitted with a highly sophisticated optical stabilization system, making sure users get glass smooth shots even in less-than-ideal situations.



High Definition on MiniDV Tapes with HDV


The HDV format used in the HVR-HD1000P allows high definition recording on standard MiniDV tapes. This is accomplished by using the very popular MPEG-2 compression technique used in many applications, including DVDs and satellite television.



ClearVID CMOS Technology


Sony's ClearVID sensor is positioned at a 45° angle. Since each pixel is positioned at this angle the result is far clearer diagonal lines. Images will appear crisper without the apparent "jaggies" that often plague video signals.
