The Sony HVR-HD1000U is an HDV camcorder specifically designed for videographers looking for a shoulder-mounted camera. Ideal for event work, the camera has minimal external controls and is capable of recording in SD (standard definiton) or 1080i HDV (high definition) directly onto a regular MiniDV tape. Recording to harddrive is possible with this camera, but not supported by the GNMC. This camera does NOT provide phantom power to microphones that require it.
