SonySony DCR-DVD508 camcorder : Sony has a camcorder to match your personal video-making style with its new line of DVD and Mini DV tape Handycam camcorders. “Our new DVD camcorder models feature enhancements and sophisticated technologies across the line to deliver benefits to satisfy the varying recording, sharing and archiving needs of different customers, depending on their preferences,” said Linda Vuolo, director for camcorder products at Sony Electronics. Sony is introducing the new Sony DVD508 camcorder for busy people who can appreciate the advantages of recording directly to disc, easy playback on DVD players, effortless sharing of home movies on a disc, and instant archiving of video footage.

In addition to –R/-RW/+RW disc compatibility, the new Sony DVD508 model is newly-compatible with three-inch, +R dual layer discs. A standard, three-inch DVD with 2.66 GB dual layer capacity can nearly double the camcorders’ recording times. Now users can continuously record close to two hours of DVD footage, depending on the recording mode. The Sony DCR-DVD508 model’s ultra-versatile 10x optical zoom can fill the frame with distant subjects with minimal loss of picture quality.

Sony DVD 508 Handycam - ClearVid CMOS sensor
The new DCR-DVD508 model is at the top of the DVD camcorder line, designed to appeal to those who prefer the convenience of having one imaging device. This model features Sony’s three Megapixel ClearVid CMOS sensor technology and Enhanced Imaging Processor, which produces vibrant, detailed video as well as six Megapixel digital still photos. Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization further enhances this model’s hybrid capabilities, producing clear, blur-free photos and smooth, crisp video.

The CMOS technology also powers the Sony DCR-DVD508 camcorder’s dual record function so you can shoot video and, at the same time, snap a smaller 4.6 Megapixel digital still. With the smooth slow record function, you can create slow motion video by playing back short video clips at 240 frames per second. And this year’s newly added voice memo feature lets you can playback those clips with audio recordings.

Sony DCR-DVD508 - Home Cinema and Wireless
Another benefit of this powerful lens is a wider image (37 mm), which help include everyone in group portraits. With built-in Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound, the new Sony DCR-DVD508 camcorder can provide an at-home cinematic experience. The Sony DVD508 DVD Handycam is compatible with Sony’s ECM-HW1 Bluetooth wireless microphone, which amplifies the center channel sound in the camcorders’ surround sound system and lets you wirelessly capture audio up to 100 feet away.

And they all feature a USB jack for effortless connection and transfer of video footage to a PC for editing and storing. The DCR-DVD508 camcorder will ship in March for about $900.
