HDV 1/2.9-inch ClearVid CMOS Shoulder Mount
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
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.
For multi-tasking videographers, the HVR-HD1000E
also features three special still photo modes - ideal for
producing DVD cases and even making wedding photo
Whether you are recording weddings and corporate
communications or teaching students, the HVRHD1000E is simply the best choice on the market
today for an entry level, shoulder mount professional
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*
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 professionallooking results.
Super SteadyShotTM (Optical) Image Stabilizer
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.
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 low-level 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)
Video: 1/4~1/10000 sec
Photo: 1/4~1/500 sec.
AE Shift
WB Shift
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
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
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 built-in buffer memory, and
then recorded to tape (in either HDV or DV format) as
slow-motion pictures lasting 12 seconds.*
during playback. HDV footage will give you a
1.2-megapixel, 1440 x 810 pixel still image of that
magic moment.
Record HD on inexpensive miniDV Cassette Tape
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 products.
* 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
Super NightShotTM
If you don’t want to upgrade your existing NLE system to HD, or simply want the option to work in DV,
the HVR-HD1000E 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.
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 surveillance.
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.***
* When using this function, the resolution of the camera image is decreased. Sound can not be recorded
while shooting in this mode.
Photo Mode
In Photo mode you can take high quality
6.1-megapixel, 2848 x 2136-quality, 4:3-aspect
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 button.
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

** 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 finished.
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.
