Summary: The machine seems to be working good but not yet used on functions. I m still going to check on the 27 April where I will be video graphing a wedding. I will then tell, I need an angle lens that will make the view more wider.
Summary: This is a great camera! I owned one for two years, I filmed everything from weddings, commercials, and hunts and it never let me down. If you get an XLR adapter you can really expand the capabilities of this camcorder.
Summary: Had to convince the boss to keep the camera and he has been nothing but pleased with it. Produced a few TV shows with it and cannot complain. Very adaptable to Final cut pro and iMovie. When received thought it would just be another large paper weight but has surprised me tremendously!!! Seller kept communication with thru a few keeping camera issues but in the long run we use constantly and are very happy.
Summary: I'm a professional wedding videographer, and I started out with this camera three years ago. I was forced to start my own business due to economic downsizing at my old job (The Weather Channel), and needed to purchase all of the necessary gear to film weddings and commercials with on my very strict (read unemployed) budget. All money for my venture was coming completely out of pocket.
Summary: The Sony HD-1000 is a great broadcast camera.The camera is a shoulder mount camera.It is very comfortable on the shoulder.When you walk into a place all eyes are on the camera.Believe me you can get into any where with this camera.It is not a home movie cam recorder it is a professional broadcast TV camera.
