19 October 2007
  • Conclusion: Der Sony HDR-SR1 bietet für AVCHD nur durchschnittliche Helligkeitsauflösung, die Farbauflösung ist unter SD-Niveau. An feinen Details sind teils deutliche (farbige) Moires zu sehen.
  • Pros: HDMI-Ausgang, gutes Display
  • Cons: schlechte Farbauflösung, SD-Qualität nur durchschnittlich

  • Conclusion: Auch wenn unser Testbericht nicht den Anschein erweckt: Das Konzept HDV-Qualität auf eingebauter Festplatte, das hat schon irgenwie was. Niemals mehr Tapes herumschleppen und ständig aufnahmebereit sein, das macht einfach Spass und Laune beim Filmen.
