Sony Hvr-hd1000u

I was at a Park Shoot last Saturday and I saw one Videographer shooting with a HVRHD1000, he was kind enough to let me take a peek at the LCD Monitor, nice and clear. I asked how the camera performs indoor and he told me it works okay since he brings extra lights. Has anyone in this forum actually used it? Care to share some videos (samples for an indoor shoot)?

Thanks in advance.

Worst thing iv ever bought.

Just buy an hv30...its cheaper and better quality.

I have the a1, hv20, hv30 & hd1000u.

The a1 & hv20/30 combine really well. The hd1000u is always off and needs a lot of time to color correct.

Think that's normal as they are Canon's and a Sony camera. Think the hvr hd1000 has a great form factor but that is it's only best feature, it is actually a small handycam in a big suit.
On the other hand, it does have some advantages to other very small handycams, it does allow to control focus or iris, though not simultaneously and by far the best feature, it is a shouldercam.
Sony will allways have a different picture compared to a Canon but in dark situations a hv30 also produces crap images, so I am not that convinced if it is that more worse then a hv30

The HD1000 is supposedly the HC7 in a big box... buy the HC7 or HC9, save some money, buy a light... and a shoulder mount. Not bad cameras if you use them right, but won't get you any points for "looks" because they are in a small form factor!

The HV20/30 and the HC7/9 are all going to be just so-so in low light, you can't pull in as much light with the small lens to match a larger cam, although these little cams work nice with a little help from an on-cam light.

As for CC, Sony and Canon start from different color curves and overall "looks", so matching may be a bit more of a problam when mixing brands or cameras, that's just how it goes.

Thanks for the information. I guess I would just go with a 3-ccd HD Camera (Panasonic or Sony).
