  • $5,41995

Sony HVR-V1P is a high-end compact digital HD video camera recorder that has been designed for the pros. Supporting Carl Zeiss Vario Sonnar T zoom lens for stellar performance in low light and wide zooms, this hand-held device is packed with features that professional movie makers look for in a portable video recorder. It comes with the powerful 1/4-inch Type ClearVid 3CMOS sensor system which derives the technology of Sony Exmor sensors. The sensor is highly sensitive to light and allows you to capture HDV 1080p native progression movies by accumulating all available light in the shooting environment.

The camera lens provides 37.4-748mm focal length range for 16:9 aspect ratio and offers wide-angle videography, 20x optical zoom and a field of view perfect for a broad range of shooting situations including landscape. The 16 elements lens features built-in 1/4 ND and 1/16 ND filters and allows auto as well as manual exposure. The device provides a built-in Enhanced Imaging Processor that works in conjunction with the sensor and lens system to capture intricate and detailed movies.

Sony HVR-V1P models a large 3.5-inch Clear Photo LCD with 211,200-dot resolution and a 0.54-inch Electronic View Finder having 252,000-dot resolution and 16:9 aspect. Other prominent specs of this camcorder include: recording in HDV/DVCAM/DV, 16mm speaker, HDMI connector, Mini B Type USB connector, 2.5mm stereo mini jack, 3.5mm headphone jack and XLR-3 audio in.
