good camera

  • Summary: I have enjoyed my hvr 1000 - It's really big and heavy but it shoots great and no issues other than having to clean the heads regularly for good quality. Happy customer.

Adequate

  • Summary: I love a lot of the features on this camcorder, however it doesn't do that well in low light unless you have proper lighting. I was needing a little more quality in the video but at 6.1 megapixles you can't really expect miracles.

Not a huge fan...

  • Summary: I used this camera to shoot a high school football game yesterday, and I wasn't pleased. The touch screen controls are extremely unusable and uncomfortable. I love the feel of the Canon XL1 and XL2 because all of the options are on the exterior. Nice try, Sony. I'll be using a Canon from now on though.

Excellent when price is factored in, does have some effort required

  • Summary: For those whom have experience with professional cameras, but are looking for something on a serious budget, this is an excellent value.

Review

  • Summary: I recently purchased this camcorder and am really glad I did. I bought the camcorder after reading the great reviews featured on HD Camera Guide. I LOVE the shoulder mount (made so much of a difference) and the picture quality is amazing! Although no XLR inputs can be kind of frustrating.

Excellent camera. Ok accessories...

  • Summary: Really, I just bought this package for the hvr-hd1000u because it was one of the better deals on the web with some accessories thrown into the mix as well. The camera itself is a very sturdy, clear camera that records in glorious HD. Also, some of the accessories are pretty good for a cheap compilation. However, I can't say the same for some of the other accessories like the video light, which is so dim it doesn't really help in any situation.

Yes, it's worth it!

  • Summary: I just bought this camera last week with the intention of making a feature HDV film with a group of like-minded individuals and I have to say now that I've received it and shot a little bit of footage with it I'm very excited. The picture is crystal clear and very bright. I watched what I shot on my HD television and it looks great, better than some professionally produced videos that air on the HD channels.

  • Summary: Look, this thing feels cheap. It's lightweight and plasticky feeling. It looks a lot like a really old VHS tape camcorder. It feels like a toy. BUT... I'll be dipped if this thing doesn't shoot some fine video! It's really crisp and vibrant stuff! I shoot professional MMA cage matches. I use multiple cameras.
