Sony V1U

We have several Sony HVR-V1U cameras available for reservation. It is a 1080p-capable camera with 24 fps capability, and full manual controls for exposure, white balance, shutter speed and focus. The V1U can be record in DV or HDV mode on mini-DV tapes. Capturing footage simply takes a Firewire cable connected between the V1U and one of our Mac computers. Alternatively, if you want to avoid having to capture MiniDV tapes, We recommend one of our newer XA25 cameras.

This camera is kept available for checkout for legacy reason or for those who are more familiar with it.
