1/2.9-inch ClearVid CMOS sensor HDV camcorder recording HD / SD
Digital HD Video Camcorder
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.***
* i.LINK is a trademark of Sony used only to designate that a product contains an IEEE 1394 connector. Not
all products with an i.LINK connector will necessarily communicate with each other. For information on
compatibility, operating conditions, and proper connection, please refer to the documentation supplied
with any device with an i.LINK connector. For information on devices that include an i.LINK connection,
please contact your nearest Sony office.
** 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.

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 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 VarioSonner 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
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 Viewfinder
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)
* Zoom
* Brightness
* Shutter
* 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 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 built-in buffer memory, and then recorded to tape (in either HDV or DV format) as slow-motion
pictures lasting 12 seconds.*
* 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 surveillance.
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 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 during
playback. HDV footage will give you a 1.2-megapixel, 1440 x 810 pixel still image of that magic moment.
