Video: The HVR-Z1U, Sony’s new pro HDV camcorder_

Sony HVR-Z1USony hit us hard with the HDR-FX1, their first consumer-grade high-definition camcorder a couple of months ago, and now they’re back with the HVR-Z1U, their latest camera that’s compatible with the High-Definition Video, or HDV format. Only this one is more on the professional tip, and besides costing a lot more ($4,900 vs. $3,600), the HVR-Z1U can also record at video at 24 frames per second, something which is supposed to give digital video more of a cinematic look, a feature that was conspicuously absent from the HDR-FX1. Should start rocking retail beginning in February.
