Product Information
HDV 1/2.9-inch ClearVid CMOS
Shoulder Mount Camcorder
Digital HD Video Camcorder
1/2.9-inch ClearVid CMOS SensorTM
The next generation of Sony imaging sensor, the
ClearVid CMOS Sensor is quite unique and different from
current CMOS technology.
The ClearVid CMOS Sensor uses a unique pixel layout
rotated 45 degrees to provide high resolution and high
sensitivity. This pixel layout technology is also used in
higher end professional camcorders.
The HVR-HD1000E has been created to meet the growing demand from users who are looking for an entry-level
professional shoulder mount design with full 1080i HDV
recording as well as retaining DV capabilities.
The HVR-HD1000E’s shoulder-mount design and black
matte body is similar to that of other professional camcorders; making it perfect for weddings, corporate communications and sporting events where appearance can
make a big difference. The ergonomically balanced
shoulder mount design also reduces operator fatigue on
long shoots where a tripod might not be practical.
As well as offering high definition HDV 1080i recording,
the HVR-HD1000E features a built-in down converter to
output DV content - ideal for standard DVD productions. It
can also record natively in DV, including a Long Play DV
mode for maximum flexibility.
The ClearVid CMOS Sensor, coupled with an Enhanced
Imaging ProcessorTM (EIP), generates stunning images.
Moreover, thanks to the CMOS technology, bright objects
do not cause vertical smear.
Optical 10x zoom with Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonner
T* lens
The HVR-HD1000E camcorder can adapt to a wide range
of shooting situations thanks to a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonner
T* lens with 10x optical zoom, as featured on higher end
professional HDV camcorders. The T* lens coating suppresses unwanted reflections and faithfully reproduces
colours for professional-looking results.
Super SteadyShotTM (Optical) Image Stabilizer
For multi-tasking videographers, the HVR-HD1000E also
features three special still photo modes - ideal for producing DVD cases and even making wedding photo albums.
An active optical lens system avoids any deterioration in
image quality. The lens itself shifts vertically and horizontally to compensate for the polarized light axis in real time.
Whether you are recording weddings and corporate communications or teaching students, the HVR-HD1000E is
simply the best choice on the market today for an entry
level, shoulder mount professional camcorder.
Wide Clear Photo LCD plusTM Monitor on
A large, freely rotating 2.7-inch type LCD screen is located on the top of the viewfinder unit to provide easy
viewing when the HVR-HD1000E camcorder is in a lowlevel position or on a tripod. This also makes it easy for a
director or client to see what the camera operator is
shooting. The 211,200 dot widescreen Clear Photo LCD
plus device provides proper brightness and a high level of
colour reproduction.
Camera Control Ring
A special camera control ring is located on the lens unit of
the HVR-HD1000E camcorder. Any one of the following
functions can be assigned to the ring for easy adjustment:
* Focus (default)
* Zoom
* Brightness
* Shutter
* Video: 1/4~1/10000 sec
* Photo: 1/4~1/500 sec.
* AE Shift
* WB Shift
Photo Mode
In Photo mode you can take high quality 6.1-megapixel,
2848 x 2136-quality, 4:3-aspect images.
Dual Record Stills & Video
You can take 4.6-megapixel (16:9-aspect) photos while
you are shooting HDV video simply by pressing the photo
Capturing stills from recorded video
In case you missed the perfect timing for your still photo
while videotaping, you can capture and save still frames
from recorded video by simply pressing the photo button
of the HVR-HD1000E camcorder during playback. HDV
footage will give you a 1.2-megapixel, 1440 x 810 pixel
still image of that magic moment.
Ergonomically Designed Handle
The ergonomically designed handle contains a convenient record button and zoom control, essential for low position shooting. There are also two cold shoes on the front
and rear of the handle where you can attach accessories
like the HVL-LBP Battery Video Light and HVR-DR60
Hard Disk Recording Unit.
Long Operating Time With infoLITHIUMTM L
Series Battery
The HVR-HD1000E camcorder uses standard infoLITHIUM L series batteries, like the DSR-PD170P,
HVR-Z1E, and HVR-V1E. With the NP-F970, a maximum
operating time of approximately 10 hours can be
achieved thanks to the power management system and
low power consumption of the ClearVid CMOS Sensor.
Smooth Slow Record
The Smooth Slow Record function enables slow-motion
playback by capturing images at four times faster than the
normal field rate (200 fields/s). In this mode, quad-speed
images are captured for three seconds, stored in the builtin buffer memory, and then recorded to tape (in either
HDV or DV format) as slow-motion pictures lasting 12
* When using this function, the resolution of the camera
image is decreased. Sound can not be recorded while
shooting in this mode.
Super NightShotTM
The Super NightShot function uses a built-in infrared light
emitter that allows you to record an object in zero lux light
levels. It also enables night-time monitoring and
Record HD on inexpensive miniDV Cassette
Video and television technology, as well as viewer preferences, are moving from standard definition (SD) to high
definition (HD) - just like black and white television moved
to colour in the past.
HD has almost twice the number of scanning lines available than SD. This means you can see much sharper detail and finer image quality when your work is viewed on a
HD display monitor. The HVR-HD1000E adopts the popular HDV format for HD recording. The HDV format allows
you to shoot approximate 63 minutes of HD video on a
miniDV cassette tape.*
There are two standards of HDV format. One is HDV720p
and the other is HDV1080i, which has 1,080 scanning
lines and is used by most broadcasters already using HD.
Sony has adopted the HDV1080i standard for all its HDV
* When the PHDVM-63DM miniDV cassette tape is used.
The PHDVM-63DV is recommended for the HDV recording mode. The recording data rate of HDV1080i format is
almost the same as that of DV format.
Full Compatibility with your Current DV System
If you don’t want to upgrade your existing NLE system to
HD, or simply want the option to work in DV, the HVRHD1000E has a down-conversion feature that outputs
converted DV signals through the i.LINK connector* to
your current DV non-linear editing system, while also retaining a HD master on the tape for future use.
Furthermore, the HVR-HD1000E offers a DV recording
mode (4:3 or 16:9**), which can provide a recording time
of approximately 120 minutes in LP mode.***

** Squeezed recording.
*** When a DVM80PRL standard miniDV cassette tape is
used. If you record in LP mode, pictures may appear
mosaic-like or sound may be interrupted when you play
back the tape on other camcorders or VCRs which do not
support Sony LP mode.
Nonlinear acquisition with HVR-DR60
The optional external HVR-DR60 Hard Disk Recording
Unit gives you a hybrid operation, where video and audio
is recorded simultaneously to hard disk drive (HDD) and
tape. The HDV or DV images are recorded as movie files
in the HDD for quick nonlinear editing, enabling the operator to archive the source tape as soon as the shoot is
Easy to use
The shoulder-mount design of the HVR-HD1000E is lightweight and easy to use even for beginners, it allows for
easy balance and stable operation.
Capture stills and video
To further enhance the multi-tasking of hard-working
videographers, the HVR-HD1000E offers three still mode
options that could be used to capture images for a DVD
cover or even wedding album;
- 1.2-megapixel 1440x810 pixel images taken from playback of standard HDV footage
- 4.6 megapixel 16:9 aspect photos captured while simultaneously shooting HDV
- 6.1 megapixel 2838x2136 4:3 aspect images shot when
not recording video footage.
