Underneath the Carl Zeiss lens you’ll find a pair of microphones capable of capturing uncompressed Linear PCM sound. Non-muso translation: it’ll sound really good (as long as the band’s not rubbish).</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/tom-wiggins" title="View user profile.">Tom Wiggins</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Behind the music </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Behind that lens there’s an Exmor R CMOS sensor that’ll record 1080p video to an SD card to be unearthed later when your band has gone on to become the next One Direction. On the side there’s a 2.7in LCD screen for watching your footage back to make sure you caught that botched stage dive.</p> <p>The MV1 also comes with Wi-Fi and NFC onboard, meaning you can hook it up to an Android smartphone or tablet to use its screen as a viewfinder, or transfer clips wirelessly to upload to the internet.&nbsp;</p> <p>The HDR-MV1 will set you back £260 when it hits sony.co.uk (and probably other shops) in December.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Sony HDR-MV1" alt="Sony HDR-MV1" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/HDR-MV1-side.jpg?1378522654" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/hdr-mv1/sony-hdr-mv1-gives-camcorders-new-lease-life/news#comments Camcorders HDR-MV1 Sony Fri, 06 Sep 2013 14:48:13 +0000 Stephen Graves 1426303 at http://www.stuff.tv
