Answer by Andrew
Okay.. This may take a while so be sure to sit down…
The HVR-HD1000u is a HD / SD Camcorder that is an entry professional video camcorder. The price is good for on who wants to look professional and still record in HD. The camcorder is cheap because of the lack of manual controls. If you have notices, there aren’t many manual controls, besides that fo a focus ring, 2 hot shoe accessory shoes, and nightshot. The focus ring can also be switched to a zoom ring. While it is good for film making, I would not say it is good for skaters, if that was your intentions. Though, if you are looking for manual controls, this is not the right camera for you.
But overall, this is a great “prosumer” camcorder for entry level film makers, and great for film makers on a budget.
