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.
  • Pros: Display; stabilizer; New AVCHD format.
  • Cons: Price.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
