Comments about Sony HVR-V1U HDV 1080i Professional Camcorder:

I have shot literally hundreds of videos and short films with my HVR-V1U cameras. I own 2, and have had no problems with either camera. My uses are mostly live music performances or music videos. Any questions, just go to see for yourself. My videos are listed on youtube[@] under the name LXP Records.

Comments about Sony HVR-V1U HDV 1080i Professional Camcorder:

Some may label a camcorder at this low price "prosumer" instead of "professional". Believe me, despite the price, you are getting a professional piece of equipment. I've worked with $10K+ camcorders, and the images produced with my Sony HVR-V1U are just as good ... make that, great!

My only complaint is that the wheel used to select menu items is too sensitive; while turning the wheel with my thumb, I sometimes press it and accidentally which selects an unintentional menu item. However, turning the wheel with the nail of my index finger greatly reduces such errors. This is just a minor inconvenience. I still love the camera! Thank you, Sony.
