Sony HVR-Z1U HDV Camcorder

  • hvr-z1u-b.jpg
  • hvr-z1u-c.jpg


The HVR-Z1U features three developed Super HAD 1/3" CCDs. These 16:9 native CCDs, combined with a high quality 12X Optical Zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar® T* Lens and Sony's 14 bit A/D and DXP Digital Extended Processor, result in precise image acquisition with superb detail and clarity. The advanced CCD design allows more light to reach the pixel imager, reducing video noise and improving the signal-to-noise ratio. The HVR-Z1U records this exceptional imagery using the recently adopted HDV 1080i format onto a DVCAM™ mini cassette. The HVR-Z1U is unique in its ability to record HDV and DVCAM ™ images at 60i, 50i, 30, 25 or 24 frames per second—in either SD or HD. Switchable 60/50 capability is to satisfy in both 60i/50i and NTSC/PAL HD and SD applications.
