Another HDV Camera From Sony

For all of you Avid and Final Cut Pro Artists out there, Sony has just unleashed another HDV camera, the Sony HVR-A1U HDV Camcorder, that's coming in at 1080i for around $2,700.00. Now that's quite economical for an HDV camera! There's not a ton of stuff on the web yet, due to the fact that not many producers have had a chance to test this thing in the field, but there are some accounts starting to surface about its picture quality compared to its bigger more expensive siblings the FX1 and Z1U.

With a little bit of color correction, The footage from the A1U is said to be comparable to the Z1U, kicking out a picture that is clearly superior to DV. If your experience at this point has been with larger shoulder mounted units, this camera will feel a little awkward in the field when you are trying to get a steady shot. I haven't found anything specific about shoulder mounts being offered for this model, which happens to be very similar in size to the Cannon GL2. We will keep you posted with any new developments on this model. Happy shooting!
