The Sony DCR-SD1000E Handycam Shoulder-Mount Flash Memory PAL Camcorder is a semi-pro standard-definition camcorder with a 12x Sony G lens that records standard-def PAL video as MPEG-2-PS files. Offering a professional style of operation and a form factor that confers a considerable measure of authority to its operator, the DCR-SD1000E features large lens rings that manipulate the camcorder's full manual controls.
In addition to the options for professional-style operation, the DCR-SD1000E also features Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilization technology and an Intelligent Auto mode that selects the best combination of settings based on the scene in front of you. The camcorder also serves double-duty as a still-image capture device much better than most video cameras. With the DCR-SD1000E's 7.1 Mp CMOS sensor, you can capture images at up to 3072 x 2304 resolution.
The shoulder-mount Handycam model has 32 GB of built-in flash memory, and you'd be hard-pressed to fill the internal storage in a single day of shooting – even while operating in the highest-quality mode. In HQ mode, the operator can record approximately 8 hours to the 32 GB internal memory; in LP mode, over 24 hours. That's without even adding a Memory Stick to the camcorder's slot to expand its capacity.
