  • Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization: The HVR-HD1000U comes fitted with a highly sophisticated optical stabilization system, making sure users get glass smooth shots even in less-than-ideal situations
  • High Definition on MiniDV Tapes with HDV: The HDV format, used in the HVR-HD1000U allows high definition recording on standard MiniDV tapes. This is accomplished by using the very popular MPEG-2 compression technique used in many applications, including DVDs and satellite television
