DMN Product Review: by Douglas Spotted Eagle HVR-A1UBringing its fourth HDV camera to market, Sony is about to start shipping the second in their professional offerings for the HDV shooter. The HVR-A1U is the latest addition to the HDV market, and is a dynamite camcorder both for DV shooters and HDV shooters. Good things come in small packages.
