Sony’s New HVR-V1U 24p HDV Camcorder

Sony’s New HVR-V1U 24p HDV Camcorder: "Sony invented 24p six years ago when it developed the HDW-F900 HDCAM camcorder at the behest of George Lucas, who wanted to shoot Star Wars Episodes I, II, and III in a digital medium. But Panasonic and JVC have more fully exploited 24p capabilities across their professional camcorder lines. Panasonic, for instance, introduced 24p to standard-definition MiniDV with its groundbreaking AG-DVX100 and followed up with the compact AG-HVX200, a DVCPRO HD system that initiated the era of flash-memory P2 recording.
