The Sony HVR-V1U is an HDV camcorder designed specifically to incorporate many of the features only afforded previously to Sony's high-end digital cinema cameras. The V1U utilizes a sophisticated pulldown system, giving shooters 24p capability for creating a film-like video.
With 24p, users can mimic the shutter of a film which is often sought after for commercials and dramatic productions. Equally important, Sony's 2:3 pulldown technique records into standard 60i streams, so no additional gear is required. All your existing Sony HDV equipment will play 24p without a hitch! It couldn't be easier.
The camera also features 3CMOS ClearVid sensor technology. These CMOS sensors create sharp, rich images with natural color reproduction sure to please even the most scrutinizing eye. These features combined with a high-end Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T Lens make the HVR-V1U a welcome addition to the already proven line of Sony professional HDV products.
