Sony DCR-SR32E camcorder : Ideal for everyone who’s on the move, the latest Sony SR32E Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Handycam offers impressively long recording time and longer battery STAMINA, without the hassle of carrying extra tapes. Ultra-compact, lightweight and easy to use, the new Sony HDD SR32E Handycam records footage on to the camcorder’s Hard Disk which can be easily searched, viewed, or downloaded to a PC. The new Sony Handycam DCR-SR32E will be available throughout Europe from March 2007. Starting with 30GB on entry models, HDD Handycam offers up to 60GB hard disk capacity. More than any other available camcorder, this range-topping capacity is enough to store up to 41 hours 50 minutes of video or 9,999 still pictures.|

The Sony DCR-SR32E, a high-range model, has also been upgraded to 40GB HDD capacity from current 30GB, providing space to store up to 28 hours of video. The new Sony SR32E Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Handycam's class-leading storage capacity is complemented by equally impressive battery STAMINA: the new-generation optional H-Series InfoLITHIUM battery delivers up to 10 hours continuous shooting from a single charge. Optional are three new batteries (NP-FH100, NP-FH70 and NP-FH50).
Sony DCR SR32E - Carl Zeiss and HDD protection
The new SR32E opens up dramatic new shooting possibilities with a massive 40x Optical Zoom range. Wide angle performance has also been improved by 20%: a major bonus whether you’re shooting outdoor scenery or a group of people in a room. Like all other Handycam, the Sony DCR SR32 features Carl Zeiss optics for superlative resolution and colour reproduction. There’s only one chance to capture special moments when they happen, and HDD Handycam adopts a twofold HDD Smart Protection strategy to safeguard against the inadvertent loss of precious pictures. A physical shock absorber protects the drive against physical jarring and bumps during operation, while 3G sensor detects abrupt motion in three dimensions to distinguish accidental drops from other body movements. Video stream buffering also ensures that recording continues smoothly.

After shooting, there’s no need to fiddle with cables when you want to store, edit and enjoy the results at home. Supplied with all HDD models, Handycam Station can be linked permanently to a TV via its analogue connector, while the Hi-Speed USB port allows direct digital connection to a PC. It also doubles as a charger, just drop in your Handycam and power up while enjoying your new shots. One-Touch Disc Burn function is now 1.5x faster, allowing an hour’s worth of video to be recorded onto DVD using a connected PC in around 20 minutes. The Sony DCR-SR32E accepts Memory Stick DUO removable media for still picture recording and offer Hi-Speed USB 2.0 connectivity with a PC for editing and back-up.
Sony HDD camcorder - Optional accessories
From lenses, microphones and high-power batteries to tripods and stylish carry cases - there’s a full range of official accessories to help you get even more from your Handycam. New-generation InfoLITHIUM H Series batteries feature Hybrid Lithium-Ion cells and ActiFORCE battery technology for higher capacity and faster recharging plus a more accurate, responsive indication of remaining capacity. Compatible with all latest Handycam models, three new batteries (NP-FH100, NP-FH70 and NP-FH50) offer capacities of 3980mAh, 1800mAh and 900mAh respectively. All can also be used with older camcorders using P Series batteries.
Sony DCR SR-32E - Wide and Tele lenses
Two High Grade Lenses feature a newly-developed optical design that reduces their size and weight, making them an ideal match for latest ultra-portable Handycam models. Certified for High Definition video and still image use, the Sony VCL-HG1737C tele conversion lens and VCL-HG0737C wide conversion lens are compatible with HD as well as higher-specification standard definition models.
