Very similar to the A1E in performance with a single CMOS sensor but in a larger shoulder mounted design ideal for weddings and events.
The HVR-HD1000E has been created to meet the growing demand from users who are looking for an entry-level professional shoulder mount design with full 1080i HDV recording as well as retaining DV capabilities.
The HVR-HD1000E's shoulder-mount design and black matte body is similar to that of other professional camcorders; making it perfect for weddings, corporate communications and sporting events where appearance can make a big difference. The ergonomically balanced shoulder mount design also reduces operator fatigue on long shoots where a tripod might not be practical.
As well as offering highdefinition HDVTM1080i recording, the HVR-HD1000E features a built-in down converter to output DV content - ideal for standard DVD productions. It can also record natively in DV, including a Long Play DV mode for maximum flexibility.
For multi-tasking videographers, the HVR-HD1000E also features three special still photo modes - ideal for producing DVD cases and even making wedding photo albums.
Whether you are recording weddings and corporate communications or teaching students, the HVR-HD1000E is simply the best choice on the market today for an entry level, shoulder mount professional camcorder.
1/2.9-inch ClearVid CMOS SensorTM
The next generation of Sony imaging sensor, the ClearVid CMOS Sensor is quite unique and different from current CMOS technology.
The ClearVid CMOS Sensor uses a unique pixel layout rotated 45 degrees to provide high resolution and high sensitivity. This pixel layout technology is also used in higher end professional camcorders.
The ClearVid CMOS Sensor, coupled with an Enhanced Imaging ProcessorTM (EIP), generates stunning images. Moreover, thanks to the CMOS technology, bright objects do not cause vertical smear.
Optical 10x zoom with Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonner T* lens
The HVR-HD1000E camcorder can adapt to a wide range of shooting situations thanks to a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonner T* lens with 10x optical zoom, as featured on higher end professional HDV camcorders. The T* lens coating suppresses unwanted reflections and faithfully reproduces colours for professional-looking results.
Super SteadyShotTM (Optical) Image Stabilizer
An active optical lens system avoidsany deterioration in image quality. The lens itself shifts vertically and horizontally to compensate for the polarized light axis in real time.
Wide Clear Photo LCD plusTM Monitor on Viewfinder
A large, freely rotating 2.7-inch type LCD screen is located on the top of the viewfinder unit to provide easy viewing when the HVR-HD1000E camcorder is in a low-level position or on a tripod. This also makes it easy for adirector or client to see what the camera operator is shooting. The 211,200 dotwidescreen Clear Photo LCD plus device provides proper brightness and a high level of colour reproduction.
Camera Control Ring
A special camera control ring is located on the lens unit of the HVR-HD1000E camcorder. Any one of the following functions can be assigned to the ring for easy adjustment:
* Focus (default)
* Video: 1/4~1/10000 sec
* Photo: 1/4~1/500 sec.
* AE Shift
* WB Shift
Ergonomically Designed Handle
The ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting. There are also two cold shoes on the front and rear of the handle where you can attach accessories like the HVL-LBP Battery Video Light and HVR-DR60 Hard Disk Recording Unit.
Long Operating Time With infoLITHIUMTM L Series Battery
The HVR-HD1000E camcorder uses standard infoLITHIUM L series batteries, like the DSR-PD170P, HVR-Z1E, and HVR-V1E. With the NP-F970, a maximum operating time of approximately 10 hours can be achieved thanks to the power management system and low power consumption of the ClearVid CMOS Sensor.
Smooth Slow Record
The Smooth Slow Record function enables slow-motion playback by capturing images at four times faster than the normal field rate (200 fields/s). In this mode, quad-speed images are captured for three seconds, stored in the built-in buffer memory, and then recorded to tape (in either HDV or DV format) as slow-motion pictures lasting 12 seconds.*
* When using this function, the resolution of the camera image is decreased. Sound can not be recorded while shooting in this mode.
The Super NightShot function uses a built-in infrared light emitter that allows you to record an object in zero lux light levels. It also enables night-time monitoring and surveillance.
In Photo mode you can take high quality 6.1-megapixel, 2848 x 2136-quality, 4:3-aspect images.
Dual Record Stills & Video
You can take 4.6-megapixel (16:9-aspect) photos while you are shooting HDV video simply by pressing the photo button.
Capturing stills from recorded video
In case you missed the perfect timing for your still photo while videotaping, you can capture and save still frames from recorded video by simply pressing the photo button of the HVR-HD1000E camcorder during playback. HDV footage will give you a 1.2-megapixel, 1440 x 810 pixel still image of that magic moment.
