SonySony DCR-SR42 camcorder : The escalation of sharing user-created content on the Internet has generated demand for camcorders that offer simplified recording and virtually effortless video sharing. Sony US is responding to this demand with a new HDD model for its 2007 Handycam camcorder lineup: Sony DCR-SR42. Pre-orders for these products will begin tomorrow at sonystyle.com/Handycam as well as for sale in March at Sony Style retail stores and authorized dealers nationwide beginning in March 2007. “The long recording times of our hard disk drive camcorders are designed to capture life’s unscripted times, beyond school plays and music recitals,” said Linda Vuolo, director of marketing for camcorder products at Sony Electronics.
Sony SR42 camcorder - Optical zoom
“Because you never know where life will take you, using a camcorder like the Sony SR42 video camera that records to a hard drive means you have hours of recording capacity to capture those moments.” Sony’s fifth new Hard Drive Handycam camcorder, the new entry-level Sony DCR-SR42 Handycam model, offers an 40X optical zoom to capture the action up close, even if you’re far away. The Sony SR42 camera has a 30GB hard drive and will be available for about $600.

Sony DCR-SR42 - Memory Stick Duo slot
Sony’s new HDD camcorders are capable of low-light video recording with the auto slow shutter functionality, providing a range of two-to-five-lux performance to guarantee brighter video in dim environments. The Sony SR42 has a Memory Stick Duo media slot to facilitate still image capture. There is also a full line of camcorder accessories available, including lights, lenses, microphones, InfoLithium batteries, chargers and cables.

Sony DCR-SR42 HDD video camera - Record and Protect
To protect hours of recorded video on the hard disk drive, Sony makes its hard drive camcorders with the HDD Smart Protection System to reduce the likelihood of data loss in the event the camera is dropped or mishandled. The 3G sensor detects a sudden acceleration, caused by a fall, and instantly lifts the writer heads from the hard drive, preventing damage from impact. If there is a drop or fall while the camcorder is recording, the camcorder is designed to buffer the video stream until the drive is stable and operational again before writing the stored data to disk. Sony’s HDD Handycam models also include physical shock absorbers to protect the hard disk drive.

Sony HDD camcorder - Handycam station and Software
All of the new HDD camcorders include a Handycam Station that can connect the camcorder to a personal computer, television set or a DVDirect DVD recorder with the supplied USB and AV cables. The Handycam Station features a One Touch Disc Burn button to automatically burn video to a DVD disc via a PC or without a PC when attached to a DVDirect recorder. In either case, the recorder can automatically detect the camcorder’s newest content and seamlessly burn the footage to a blank DVD, eliminating the need to cue the new recordings. The new Sony DCR-SR42 camcorder is also packaged with DVD authoring software to edit video once downloaded to a PC.

Sony HDD SR42 camcorder - Compatibility
Sony's new hard disk drive Handycam camcorders are compatible with the following PC operating systems: Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, XP Home Edition, and XP Professional. Not all devices with a USB 2.0 connector will communicate with each other due to chipset variations. The viewable area of the LCD screen is measured diagonally.
