Sony HDR SR1 Review

Review guidelines
13 May 2013
  • Summary: Without a shadow of doubt, the Sony HDR SR1 is one of the best camcorders manufactured by Sony so far, especially because it uses its internal hard disk but also because it introduces the new AVCHD recording format, which ensures outstanding picture quality. The display is the largest in its class; high-quality and sizes are average. It is instead the high weight of 720 grams well. The features offered by this model are many and justify, in part, the high price.
  • Pros: Display; stabilizer; New AVCHD format
  • Cons: Price

Sony Handycam HDR-SR1

  • Summary: The Sony Handycam HDR-SR1's combination of hard disk capacity, easy adapatability, great design, and a broad feature set make it the consumer HD model to beat for 2006.
  • Pros: Hard disk holds about four hours of best-quality HD video; sharp, saturated, low-noise video; excellent build quality; fast, smooth focus with effective image stabilization.
  • Cons: Mediocre still photos; frequent motion artifacts in video; lame but necessary bundled software; no windscreen filter for microphone.

  • Excerpt: In Sonys new line up of AVCHD based Handycams, the HDR-SR1 is probably the model the serious video person would look at as against its sibling, the UX-1. The major difference between the two is media; the SR-1 uses hard disc technology for video storage as against the UX-1s DVD. Up to 7 hours of video can be stored utilising the AVCHD  H.264 (MPEG4) compression system.

  • 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. Der subjektive Bildeindruck ist gut bis befriedigend, was auch auf das gute Dynamikverhalten mit wenig Rauschen und geringen Smear-Effekten zurückgeht. Farblich ist der SR1 angenehm stimmig. Der Weitwinkel ist für Innenräume sehr gering, dafür sind nur wenig Objektiv-Fehler auszumachen.
  • Pros: HDMI-Ausgang, gutes Display
  • Cons: schlechte Farbauflösung, SD-Qualität nur durchschnittlich

Sony HDR-SR1E

  • 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. Somit eignet sich der SR1 für alle, die sich wenig mit manuellen Einstellungen herumplagen wollen und lieber jederzeit „draufhalten“.

  • Conclusion: Clone du caméscope HD UX1, le Sony HDR-SR1 en reprend les grandes ligne avec quelques fonctions supplémentaires et un disque dur à la place du DVD.
