Sony HVR-HD1000E

 

Good end result in terms of picture quality. For more difficult shots a good range of manual controls. For my needs it is a tape driven system.

Body is much bigger than modern electronics require. Having all the manual functions on a single ring control makes it impossible to use more than one at a time. Difficult to pack because of it's size.

Sony HVR-HD1000E

 

High Quality Images including instant high quality stills facility.

No UK/Ireland mains lead adaptor supplied. Not straightforward to Download to MacBook at first due to lack of iLink cable (not supplied with Camcorder} Not so much bad points as ones which if rectified would give more customer satisfaction.

Sony HVR-HD1000E

 

sharp and clear picture even with dv tape, asining menue's to the lens ring for instant use, shoulder mounting for stability 0f use,, instant manual and back light buttons. 2 shoes for accessaries and mike jack for exsternal microphone ease of use:

lcd screen could be a bit bigger but i dont use it much, have not used camcorder much yet to access anything else but having used other camera's before i do not see any problems so far;

A good solid feel when shooting, nice flip up screen and the camera looks good. Used for secondery camera work.

Not enough control without having to use the menu a lot. Would have preferred a little more outer body controls for easier ease of use.

Sony HVR-HD1000E

 

Simple basic layout of controls, shoulder mounted, and 2 useful shoe mounts on top. Good clear LCD and large lens hood. Simple for set up and shoot

None really but requires a rather large case

Sony HVR-HD1000E

 

fantastically usable features, particularly like the spot meter and spot focus features

none really, just not ideal for simple camcorder use due to size
