Camcorder Review: Sony DSR-PD150 DVCAM

 

As camcorder prices continue to drop, professional format cameras have come into the grasp of consumers. The Sony DSR-PD150 is one of them. Styled after the legendary Sony VX-1000, its thoughtful additions make it a reasonable choice for the video...

XLR audio inputs ; Great picture ; Rugged construction

XLR module awkward placement ; Auto iris button placement ; Fixed lens

We shot footage with this camcorder in a variety of situations. We shot a studio model with controlled lighting, in bright midday light on a golf course, at 10,000 feet in a national park, in deep woods with fall colors and snowmobiles in action....

great camera

A Proven Camera - by the BBC and several feature films

 

Great low-light sensitivity, reliable workhorse, both DVCAM and dv format, seamless compatibility
