Video Equipment - Want to promote your music through social media? Grab a Sony HDR-MV1 music video camera and you're good to go. This amazing, lightweight, and extremely portable HD video camera lets you capture stunning video and audio that more than rivals any camera in its class. The wide-angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens performs wonderfully in low light and tight spaces, while the X-Y stereo microphone pair captures broad, clear, and detailed audio.

There are a few things we've come to look for in a music camera, and we're happy to say that the Sony HDR-MV1 nails them all. For starters, the camera itself has to cover a wide field and handle low light like a champ. That's why Sony chose to pair a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with their Exmor R CMOS sensor. The lens itself offers you a 120-degree wide-angle view, which lets you to capture your entire band even in tight practice spaces. The fixed F2.8 aperture and advanced onboard metering provide admirable quality in environments as dim as 4.5 lux. And since it records in 1080p at 30 fames/second, you'll be ready to post great-looking HD videos right after shooting with your Sony HDR-MV1.Quality condenser microphones record stunning stereo audioPossibly even more important than its video capabilities is the audio quality of the Sony HDR-MV1. Taking full advantage of Sony's history of developing high-end field-recording equipment, the HDR-MV1 offers high-detail, low-noise sound courtesy of an X-Y stereo pair of condenser microphones. Just like the Zeiss camera lens, these microphones cover a 120-degree spread, so anything you record will sound like it's coming from the right place. A bit of built-in advanced audio processing called Audio Lip Sync even ensures that your video and audio are totally synced up, adding an important touch of professional polish to you videos. And with your choice of better-than-CD quality PCM linear or internet-ready AAC recording options, your final video will be ready for further processing or immediate delivery to your fans.Loaded with options to make shooting fun and convenientIn addition to Audio Lip Sync, Sony loaded the HDR-MV1 music video camera with a number of extremely useful functions.

Some of the advanced functions you'll find onboard the HDR-MV1 include a facial detection, which keeps the action focused on the performers, plus a scene modes for shooting at night, onstage, outdoors, and in other environments. The included battery gives you over three hours of shooting time, but you can connect your HDR-MV1 to a USB power source for longer shoots.
