Super Quality

stan marshall, Amazon
8 February 2005
  • Summary: This is the best quality you can get in a semi-pro camcorder from Sony prior to the 1080i release, which has not been released prior to this writing. You just can't bet the 3 ccd quality.

Camcorder for the Prosumer

Heath Taylor, Amazon
8 February 2005
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder last December (2004) and it is absolutely the best picture I have seen out of a Mini DV camcorder. I originally bought the Panasonic 3CCD and returned it due to no ability to adjust shutter speed below 60 for low light conditions.

  • Summary: This is the greatest little camcorder in the world with lots of bells and whistles that would have been way more expensive a while ago.

Sony Handycam DCR HC1000E

PJWINWRIG..., Ciao
7 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Sony seem to be setting themself apart from the field with their range of handycams which are a class apart from the rest. In the DV (non-high definition) category, this is the best semi-professional camcorder around.
  • Pros: Excellent Image with 3CCD, Lightweight and Easy to Use
  • Cons: Now obsolete due to High - Def 3CCD Camcorders
