HDR-UX1 and HDR-SR1



HDR-SR1



I like the HDR-SR1 very much. Dedicated Mic and Headphone jacks are back. Longer record times and a return back to some manual controls like the focusing ring. This would be my target. I'm impressed, I thought I'd have to wait longer for HD recording on HDD. It's here in a couple of months. Sweet.

    Nice.



    Neither article says it has an Active Interface Shoe but I would assume that it does. The available mics that plug into it aren't that great, but I sell an adaptor that adds a physical mount so something like a Videomic can be attached.



    Article:

    Sony has brought back a dedicated microphone jack and a dedicated headphone jack, two features that can't be found on any Sony conusmer camcorder under $3,000.



    Any currently shipping consumer camcorder under $3k. If one is willing to go prosumer or pro, there is one shipping & available for $2k.
