Best HD professional camera ever
5 Star Review   By yeswecan on Sony - Official Store - Sep 8, 2012   

As a film maker and a movie producer, I need a camera which is not only support HDV, but also have a professional outlook. 1000U is my best camera! Extremely clear and easy to use, you don't need to worry about how to push these bottoms on this camera, just know a few and you can start working! Image is stable and sound is great! Backlight function is awesome!!

This is a great camera depending on your needs. No it's not a professional camera but if you use it for events, weddings, documentries, parties and the same you can't go wrong. As for as price you can't beat the price for it's range. The controls are easy

Hot Little Camera
5 Star Review   By Flataddicted on Sony - Official Store - Jan 11, 2010   

Very good camera for a beginner and or first time user. But it's also well designed to fit the needs of a semi pro as well. If the right person has this camera in their hands it's tops. Where even in a full AUTO mode the beginner can also get some great stuff as well. Check out my videos with it at www.flataddicted.com

High quality video...even in low-light
5 Star Review   By Bill on Adorama - Jun 19, 2008   

Shooting from the shoulder provides stability & is sufficiently comfortable for long durations. I purchased this camcorder after much research & experience with other cameras...I don't think you can beat the value.
