Easy Camcorder
3 December 2004
  • Excerpt: The Sony DCR-HC1000 was something of a disappointment this year. It entered the market at a substantially higher price than the PV-GS400, its biggest competitor, and frankly, didn’t measure up. While the camcorder’s video and low light performance were good and comparable to the PV-GS400’s excellent quality, there were some handling issues that affected all areas of use.
  • Pros: - Spot metering, Spot Focusing, - Video and Low light performance, - Image Stabilization, - Color hue and sharpness control
  • Cons: - Handling, - Touch screen, - Manual control options (no iris reading)

Sony DCR-HC1000

  • Excerpt: Esthétiquement réussi et très plaisant à utiliser, le DCR-HC-1000 est placé sous le signe de la "mixité". Il fait  partie de ces caméscopes qui combinent les usages professionnel et grand public. Il offre bon nombre des avantages d’une caméra "pro" : mire de barre, nombreux et divers effets, zoom plutôt puissant et surtout prise de son irréprochable, domaine dans lequel il n’a presque rien à envier à ses concurrents.
