Sony HVR-Z1U camcorder captures Colombo

Veteran videographer and journalist Jon Alpert recently took Sony's HVR-Z1U professional HDV camcorder behind the scenes to shoot an HBO docu-comedy based on the reality show, "House Arrest."

"House Arrest" follows a day in the life of Chris Colombo, scion of the famous New York Colombo family. Following his recent arrest on federal racketeering charges, Colombo was released on bail and placed under house arrest, with an ankle bracelet, curfew and travel restrictions.

Alpert went to Colombo's Orange County, NY, home to capture test footage and ended up shooting an entire program's worth of material. From Colombo's home to his limo and various points in between, Alpert and the HVR-Z1U were able to discreetly capture even the smallest details that make the footage come alive on the screen.

The camcorder's ability to produce high-quality images in a compact package helped Alpert blend into his subjects' environments without being obtrusive.
