HVR-A1U Excellent Professional Video Camera

Rudy F. Morales, Amazon
29 January 2011
  • Summary: My first impression was that the camera was very small, but thinking well for what I need is the perfect. Weddings and sweet 16, and family videos is my thing. New Camcorders are so small, it is logical that the HVR-A1U, is a small camera at professional level. HVR-A1U: Awesome video quality, but must purchase MiniDV HD, not normal cheap video tapes, that's the secret, buying high quality cassette it makes big difference.

Great camera for the price!!

Nick Bibbo, Amazon
8 June 2008
  • Summary: I recently had the Canon GL1 and thought it was time to upgrade to Hi-Def. After reading about 30 customer and 20 pro reviews it was the only camera that was offered pro features and great image quality worth way more then the price. It is all because of the CMOS sensor the camera uses. It consumes less power, less money to produce, better image quality then CCD and does not smear light.

Great Camera

Angela Kovacs, Amazon
19 November 2006
  • Summary: I bought this camera to start my production business with and it was the best move I could have made. This camera is great for a beginner like me. It is user friendly while still allowing for ajustments. The HD is also amazing, my customers that have there videos in HD are absolutely floored we they get their finished product. A few things that I can recommend are getting a tripod as well as an extended battery.

Real Professional Camcorder

Konrad Haskins, Amazon
10 October 2006
  • Summary: This camcorder is from the Sony Professional division with pro level warranty support. Sound is 70% of the experience and this camcorder delivers pro level XLR connectors with 48V power. For best sound results manually set the volume as high as possble keeping the peaks below 0db. The CMOS sensor produces amazing HD quality.

HDTV Sony Camera is a Hit with me

Louis Fridhandler "Video afincionado", Amazon
28 July 2006
  • Summary: The Sony HVR-A1U CMOS High Definition Camcorder with 10x Optical Zoom performs as advertised. It is very versatile to answer the user's various demands on it. When High Definition DVD recorders (Blu-Ray or HD DVD) become standardized and widely available, I expect this technology will be the norm. The pictures in Hi-Def are wonderful.
