Sony has launched two HDV camcorders that sit between its current models. The HDR-FX7E and HVR-V1E are essentially variations on the same model, with the pro-focussed V1E adding a 25P capture mode, XLR audio inputs and more manual controls.

The V1E is on show at the IBC trade show in Amsterdam.

The new models are around 40 per cent smaller and 25 per cent lighter than Sony’s current flagship models, the FX1 and Z1 (which are again variants on the same design). Each has a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 20x optical zoom lens on the front.

Video is captured by three ClearVid CMOS sensors, which on the V1E allow true 1080 progressive scan capture at 25fps (25p). This gives footage more of a ‘film-look’ and is compatible with editing software from Adobe, Apple, Avid and Sony itself. Both camcorders can also capture 25fps footage in 1080i format.

The Cinematone Gamma and Cinematone Colour features on the V1E enable capture of footage with the same colour characteristics as film. It also offers two XLR microphone inputs, TC Link to synchronize timecodes between multiple camcorders and a Camera Profile feature to synchronize settings.
</p>
<p>
Both camcorders feature independent manual zoom and focus rings, two neutral density (ND) filters, HDMI output, and a high-resolution 3.5-inch LCD screen with Clear Photo technology for use even in bright conditions, according to Sony.
</p>
<p>
Sony has also announced HVR-DR60 hard disk recording unit, which can record HDV, DVCAM and DV from a wide range of the company’s camcorders.
</p>
<p>
The FX7E, V1E and DR60 will ship in November. Pricing has yet to be announced.
