This is accomplished by using the very popular MPEG-2 compression technique used in many applications, including DVDs and hd10000 television.
Since each pixel is positioned at this angle the result is far clearer diagonal lines. Images will appear crisper, without the apparent “jaggies” that often plague video signals. Rated 2 out of 5 by anthony from Poor quality This is not a camera for home use; it’s look and size are made it for pro use.
However, because of the poor quality lots of noise in low light, only one control at a time, etcthis camera does not fit the requirements for pro work. In addition, the hand strap will eventually brake because the camera is heavy and there won’t be a way to hold the camera. Some people don’t like the mic, well, this is hhd1000 only thing that can be fixed in post production. Some say the camera is good for events and weddings, yes if there is enought light.
I bought two units and sold them; I am happy there is Overall it is a good camera. The picture quality is very good and my clients rave about how good their videos look. I love the touch screen menu on the LCD viewfinder. The battery time is 10 hours with the larger after market batteries. I never worry about power use. I have lost sync by an average of 27 frames and have to fix it during editing.
This happens quite frequently no matter what brand of tape I am using or whether it’s new tape or not. I’ve seen other postings on line about this camera and many say they lose sync as well.
It has exceeded my expectations especially since it is HD capable. It has just about every type of cabling connection that one could dream of. This add-on alone instantly transforms this camera from Semi-pro to Pro due to the XLR true-stereo jacks. I also purchased the NPF battery. That’s a hour battery, and it hasn’t let me down yet after multiple hours of taping.
They answered all of my questions and recommended exactly the camera that would fit my needs and budget. Rated 5 out h1d000 5 by Veli from Pretty good camera for the money I purchased one of these as soon as they came in.
The camera seems pretty sleek and nicely designed. It fits pretty good on hvf shoulder and gives you some really nice options. HD feature of this camera is definatelly a plus even though I’ll probable take a while until computer technology catches up with speed and HD DVDs and Blue Ray discs go down in price.
This seems to be a really good camcorder for a professional look and for the money. It would have been really nice if this camera came in with a remote and shoulder strap.
Panasonic DVC20 Date published: This is a great camera for any budget minded videographer or film student. This camera looks pro and has impressed all hvt have seen it. Fill the hot shoes with accessories and you’ll look even cooler. The picture quality blew me away when I hooked the unit up to my 65 TV. Video easily transfers to Sony Vegas and a 2: Plenty depth-of-field on the long end of the lens.
Make sure to adjust the shoulder support to fit your shoulder or it will feel awkward.
hd100 The menu driven system is not as complex as some would make you think. One thing that has not been mentioned that bugs me a little, is the fact the focus is in meters.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Excellent HDV tape camera After long exposure to consumer model video cameras and production work, I wanted to upgrade to a pro unit.
This camera has the controls and features needed for documentary types of projects, and I have not been disappointed with the results. The audio and video are both great quality. The one drawback of this camera vhr a person using a Mac for video processing is the Sony iLink DV connection.
Mac does not make a cable attaching an iLink port to a Firewire port. I was not able to find a cable from any local sources for capturing with Premier Pro. Rated 5 out of 5 by Muzik2go from Incredible Quality Incredible quality for the price. Though opened for sale inthe technology is still surprisingly advanced. Great quality of video.
Sony HVR-HDU Overview – CNET
Comes with impressive shotgun mic, though picks up unwanted noises much hve time. Perfect for a young videographer who is just starting up and wants something professional. Extremely easy to operate. Fun to operate and well placed zoom. Only detraction is that there is only one control wheel on the camera’s lens, meaning you have to switch between focus and other controls. Rated 4 out of 5 by TomV jvr Very good entry-level professional This is an excellent camera for the market segment it is after.
It is not something you will probably want if you are a higher-end professional. But if you need a good, shoulder-mount, relatively inexpensive camera with some slightly limited manual controls, this is hard to beat. I have found the performance and quality to be excellent. I am happy to have a microphone port, so I can use lavalier mics with it. I found the shotgun mic to perform adequately, but it picks up too much from the sides.
The built in HDMI is a bonus. Combined with some professional HD tape, this camera works like a champ! Be the first to review this item. See any errors on this page?
