      Just checking to see if any HVR-HD1000U’s have been delivered yet. I’m in a wait and see mode right now. Curious to hear some feedback.

      I keep checking every day, but have not seen it “In Stock” on B&H yet. I am curious if a single chip is going to cut it for today’s brides.

      I realize this camera won’t be feature packed like other HD cameras but, I can’t afford a $3-5k camera at this time and I need a shoulder mount. I’m hoping the old saying “you get what you pay for” turns out to be a pleasant surprise with this new camera. I’m sure the pros will give some opinions once they get their hands on one.

      We’re eager to get our hands on one over here. I’ve been very impressed with Sony’s ClearVid CMOS imagers and I won’t be surprised if this single imager can hold it’s own against some of the more expensive camcorders.

      I’ve heard that the next new Sony cameras will ship around February, but I don’t think anyone knows for sure yet. If the HD1000 has a single 1/3″ CMOS sensor I’ll be skeptical about the low-light performance and wouldn’t order one without testing that first – even the EX1 tends to be noisy in poor light with three 1/2″ CMOS chips.

      I saw March as the release but didn’t note the date that was posted. These imagers are really complicated and pushes the edge of technology. I won’t by the first one. πŸ˜‰

      I just got an e-mail from B&H that the cameras are now in stock. Looking forward to some feedback. Hey…it’s Christmas already! Excuse me, it’s the “holiday season” for those that wish to be politically correct :-).

      YIkes, B&H raised the price a little. Still a full sized camera for $1,500.00 is not bad.

      But my questions are, how will the picture quality rate next to a GL2 or Sony 2100? Is it better to get a single chip HD versus a SD three chip camera? Will my bride or Bar Mitzvah mom be happy with the picture quality? If you stick a fifty watt light on top, will that be enough when video tapingthe dancing? But in the church or temple, where you can’t use a light, is a SD three chip better?

      After looking at the spec sheet, I noticed low light sensitvity is rated at 4 lux. It’s better than a GL-2 @ 6luxbut not near as good asthe popularVX-2100@ 0 lux. I would be curious to here just how badthe 4 lux limitationis in say…a wedding situation. Does CMOStechnology work better than CCD in this situation?Any comments from the pros?
