Sony's DVD based AVCHD camcorder

Consumer Electronics Net
10 January 2007
  • Excerpt: At the domestic level, Sony is somewhat betting the farm on the new AVCHD format camcorders they have recently released. There are two models at present one hard disk based and one DVD based. The HDR-UX1 is the DVD based member of the family and weighs in at 660g. The Dual Layer compatible DVD mechanism (DVD-R, -RW and +RW are also supported) is on the right hand side of the main body and the hinged door swings backward to allow access.

  • Cons: Mediocre still photos, Optical and occasional motion artifacts in video, Discs unreadable by most devices, Lame but necessary bundled software, No windscreen filter for microphone

  • Conclusion: Die Sony HDR-UX1 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 befriedigend, was evtl. auch an der Datenrate von max 12 Mbit zurückzuführen ist. Farblich ist die UX1E angenehm stimmig. Der Weitwinkel ist sehr gering, dafür gibt es wenig Objektiv-Fehler. Im Lowlight ist die UX 1E befriedigend.
  • Pros: gutes Display, HDMI-Ausgang
  • Cons: SD-Qualität nur durchschnittlich, schlechte Farbauflösung, Nur kurze Aufnahmedauer mit DVD

HD-Aufnahmen mit Formatproblemen: Sony Handycam HDR-UX1

CNET
14 June 2007
  • Summary: Die Sony Handycam HDR-UX1 ist ein ganz netter Camcorder. Leider ist es aufgrund der zahlreichen Kompatibilitätsprobleme eher nicht möglich, diesen Camcorder im Vergleich zu anderen Modellen zu empfehlen.
  • Pros: scharfe, gut gesättigte und rauscharme Videos, ausgezeichnete Bildqualität, schnelle, weiche Fokussierung mit effektiver Bildstabilisierung
  • Cons: mittelmäßige Fotos, optische und zeitweilig auch Bewegungsartefakte bei Videos, die Discs sind zu den meisten Geräten nicht kompatibel, die mitgelieferte Software ist wenig leistungsfähig, kein Windschutzfilter für das Mikrofon

Sony Handycam HDR-UX1

CNET
20 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Sur le papier, le petit dernier de Sony impressionne, il ne se contente pas de filmer sur DVD, mais se montre également compatible haute définition . Mais le fait que le Sony Handycam HDR-UX1 soit un bon caméscope peut passer au second plan. La raison ? Les vidéos filmées seront difficilement exploitables ainsi que le stipule Sony sur son son site de support.
