HDR-FX1000 High Definition MiniDV (HDV) Handycam Camcorder
From the outset, the HDV 1080i specification of the HDV format was developed to record stunning HD images with 1080 active scanning lines on DV cassette tapes. It adopts the MPEG-2 compression format, using 8-bit digital component recording at approximately 25 Mbps, which is the same data rate as the DV format, enabling a long recording time on compact DV cassettes. For example, more than 60 minutes of high-quality HD images can be recorded on a MiniDV cassette. As with the DV format, the HDV format allows an i.LINK2 connection to compatible nonlinear editors, enabling a cost-effective HD production system. The sheer volume of HDV 1080i professional and consumer equipment used around the world is a clear indication that HDV 1080i has become one of the most popular HD formats.
G-Lens: 29.5mm Wide-Angle to 590mm (20x) Telephoto
The HDR-FX1000 is equipped with a 29.5mm wide-angle G-Lens made of an advanced 10-group, 15 element lens structure that includes compound aspheric lenses and Extra-low Dispersion glass, which reduces chromatic aberration caused by light refraction, to produce video with extremely low color fringing. This lens was designed for shooting situations ranging from broad landscape shots to conditions where sufficient distance from the subject is difficult to obtain. The 20x optical zoom (29.5mm-590mm: 35mm conversion) lets you zoom in to the subjects you cant get close to. The optical zoom takes maximum advantage of the lens performance, so image quality does not suffer even at a zoom ratio of 20x, allowing you the ability to reproduce the subjects impact. In addition, the digital extender increases the zoom ratio by approximately 1.5 throughout the range and up to approximately 30x at full zoom.
Superior low-light (1.5 LUX) shooting capabilities
The new G-lens affords a superior low-light ability with high sensitivity that enables clear shooting of subjects in light as low as 1.5 lux (at 1/30 fixed shutter speed with auto iris and auto gain). This allows you to capture sharp detail and brilliant colors even in less than perfect lighting, especially when additional external lighting cannot be used.
3x 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Sensors with Exmor derived technology
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization
The Optical SteadyShot image stabilization system from Sony reduces blur caused by camera shake and vibration, so your images stay crisp and clear. This optical stabilization system achieves an even higher level of smoothness without the image degradation that can occur with some digital stabilization systems.
Enhanced Imaging Processor (EIP) Technology
This model also features a signal processing circuit, the Enhanced Imaging Processor (EIP), which uses Sonys unique image-processing technology. The EIP processor is able to rapidly process the vast amounts of pixel data read from the 3x 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Sensor and record beautiful HD and colorful video. The ClearVid CMOS Sensor has been developed using the most advanced technologies in the semiconductor industry. Combined use of the 3x 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system and the EIP technology provides extremely high image quality with a smooth gradation and detailed image reproduction, enabled through a precise interpolation scheme, which concludes within each R, G and B channel. This allows a higher resolution for each R, G and B channel than is offered by equivalent-class camcorders that resort to spatial offset techniques to improve resolution. Unlike CCD sensors, there is no vertical smear in the ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system when shooting high-intensity subjects, further reducing shooting-condition constraints. * The HDV recording is in 1440 x 1080i and 4:2:0 color space.
The HDR-FX1000 features three 1/3" ClearVid CMOS Sensors, each having 1,120K total pixels which produces high-resolution 1920 x 1080 images (HDV captures 1440 x 1080) with rich and natural colors. The three independent CMOS sensors each handle one of the color elements red, green, blue (RGB) improving the color reproduction of video recordings. Dark scenes can be captured with low noise thanks to Exmor derived technology that features a new column A/D converter and dual noise reduction.
Optical 20x Lens and Optional 0.8x Wide Conversion Lens
The G-lens on the HDR-FX1000 features a 20x zoom function. Moreover, the built-in digital extender increases the zoom ratio by approximately 1.5 to approximately 30x. The optional VCL-HG0872X 0.8x wide conversion lens uses the bayonet mount system for instant attachment or detachment. Combining these lens features, operators can effortlessly capture close-up or wide-angle shots as their video production requires.
3x manual rings for superior control: zoom, focus and IRIS
The HDR-FX1000 has three independent manual rings (zoom, focus and IRIS) for superior control and flexibility while filming which make it easier to promptly make adjustments to meet shooting needs. The IRIS ring allows you to adjust the aperture to attain optimal brightness and express beautiful depth of field shots, highlighting a subject while blurring a foreground or background. Exposure can also be assigned to the IRIS ring enabling the camera to automatically select the optimal IRIS, gain or shutter speed, seamlessly enabling adjustment of exposure.

Creative Versatility IDEAL FOR CINEMA & DRAMA PRODUCTIONS
Progressive Shooting Capability Including 24p with 2:3 Pull-down and 30p
The 24p (progressive scan) images captured with the HDR-FX1000 are recorded using a method that allows them to be viewed on existing Sony HDV (60i) devices. Recordings made in this mode can also be edited as typical 60i material. The 24 mode should be selected when a 24p film-like look is desired on 60i material. In this case, there are no interruptions in the time code or video between recordings. Recordings made in this mode can be edited as typical 60i material. The 24p progressive scan signals are recorded to tape as 60i through means of 2:3 Pull-down. A 30p signal is recorded as a 60i signal by dividing each frame into two fields. This approach allows 24p and 30p progressive footage to be played back or fed to an editing suite seamlessly at 60i.
Creative Shooting Functions
Shot Transition function
The Shot Transition function allows for smooth automatic scene transitions. After an operator has programmed a shots start and end settings (e.g., for zoom, focus, iris, gain, shutter speed and white balance) and pressed the start button, a smooth transition takes place over the duration of the shot (3.5 seconds to 90 seconds) by automatically calculating intermediate setting values. This is very useful when complex camera settings are required during the scene transition for example, when panning the camcorder from a distant subject to a close subject. Three Shot Transitions are available; Linear makes a linear transition from start to end, Soft Stop makes a linear transition from the start with a slow transition near the end, Soft Transition makes the transition slow at the start and at the end and linearly in-between.
Cinematone Gamma and Cinematone Color
Users seeking extra control over image expression can use Cinematone Gamma technology to deepen the color and Cinematone Color to recreate film-like color tones. Cinematone Gamma allows operators to quickly set up and load a gamma curve with similar contrast characteristics to a film gamma curve. The Cinematone Gamma 1 setting creates natural halftones with more film-like quality than standard video gamma. The slope of the gamma curve in dark areas is suppressed, creating a deep black tone, while the middle tone to highlight areas maintain detailed contrast. The Cinematone Gamma 2 setting suppresses the dark areas even further, creating a deeper black reproduction.
Interval recording is a unique function that records signals at pre-determined intervals (0.5, 1, 5 or 10 minutes). This is ideal for recording subjects over long periods, such as the movement of clouds or the blossoming of flowers.
Smooth Slow Record
The Smooth Slow Record function enables clean slow-motion playback by capturing images at 4x the normal field rate (240 fields/s). Smooth Slow Record allows you to capture 6 seconds of fast motion which will play video back in 24 seconds. This video will be stored in the built-in buffer memory, then recorded to tape (in either HDV or DV format) as slow-motion pictures. Using the built-in buffer memory, shots can be set to start 6 sec. before, 6 sec. after or 3 seconds before record has been activated. Smooth Slow Record function can be activated by the record button or an audio trigger. This is particularly useful for difficult shots that can be simplified by starting record with an audio cue. For example; recording your own golf swing can be triggered by setting the camcorder on a tripod and triggering the record start by a simple noise, like calling out Action.
