SonySony MiniDV camcorder introduction : Sony is raising eyebrows with the introduction of six new Sony Mini DV Handycam camcorder models. The 2005 line-up is big on performance and functionality, while still being easy to use, and a joy to behold. For people who love to record and enjoy high-quality video, Sony loaded its new Mini DV camcorders with powerful features. One of the most exciting is the addition of the Handycam Station, a tabletop cradle that charges the camcorders and connects them conveniently to a TV or PC. One of the models has a new imaging technology, while several of the camcorders feature improved optical zoom, along with wide LCD screens to address the growing demand for 16:9 video.

"We've studied how people use their camcorders and have incorporated this understanding into a comprehensive line of Mini DV models with the aim of making a camcorder as important an accessory as a cellular phone," said Linda Vuolo, director for camcorder products at Sony Electronics. Highlighting the line, the DCR-PC1000 model is Sony's first consumer camcorder to feature 3-chip CMOS (complimentary metal oxide semiconductor) sensor technology with an enhanced imaging processor.

Sony - DCR-PC1000 high-end camcorder
CMOS sensors deliver wide dynamic range for outstanding picture quality with better lighting details on video and still images. They also require less power, providing more efficient operation. A true enthusiast's camcorder, the Sony DCR-PC1000 model is loaded with upgraded features for making movie masterpieces. Its cinematic mode lends a 24 frame, film-like effect to recordings while the new imaging technology adds clarity and detail. The Sony PC1000 camcorder model also has a 2.7-inch wide hybrid SwivelScreen touch panel LCD screen, which lets you switch between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios and comes with a Handycam Station for quick, easy connection to a TV or PC.

Sony - DCR-PC55 camcorder
Bringing high-style to the new line-up is the DCR-PC55 model. Slightly larger than a deck of cards, as of the end of last year is the world's smallest Mini DV camcorder. But don't let its small size fool you: It still sports a huge 3-inch Hybrid SwivelScreen LCD. And for the first time, Sony is offering a Handycam camcorder in four colors - silver, black, white and red - appealing to the most fashion-conscious consumer. Additionally, the DCR-PC55 camcorder features SlideShow Plus, which uses the 3-inch LCD and a distinctive Handycam Station that is positioned to display desktop slideshows with the push of a button.

Sony - DCR-HC90 camcorder
For advanced performance with great value, the DCR-HC90 camcorder is Sony's first three-Megapixel Mini DV camcorder with a recommended price under $1,000. The camcorder comes with a 2.7-inch Hybrid SwivelScreen Touch Panel LCD display to record and play back in widescreen format. Additionally, it has an intelligent accessory shoe, Super NightShot Plus, a built-in flash and the advanced multi-layer coating of a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens to capture video and pictures that are more vivid and rich, even when taken in low light.

Sony - Charged up for convenience
Like a cellular phone or PDA cradle, the accompanying Handycam Station charges the units and connects them to a TV or PC, while keeping the camcorder easily accessible and ready to record any video moment. The Handycam Station comes fully loaded with all the necessary inputs, including S-video and an audio/video terminal for connecting the unit to a TV, as well as a USB port and an i.LINK (IEEE1394) digital interface for connection to a compatible PC. Rounding out the new Mini DV camcorders with Handycam Station are the DCR-HC32 and DCR-HC42 models.

The Sony DCR-HC21 camcorder includes 20X Optical/800X Digital Zoom, the Super SteadyShot Image Stabilization.
