Sony HDR-HC1 2.8 MP HD MiniDV Camcorder

Sony released the HDR-HC1 which is the world’s smallest and lightest HDTV (1080i) capable digital camcorder weighing in at less than two pounds and easily fits in your hand (unlike the Sony HDR-FX1 – which was the world’s first non-commercial HDTV digital camcorder).

Imagine shooting your kid’s birthday party in 1080i with 16×9 aspect ratio. Another ground-breaker in the products we’re presenting in today’s digital camcorder category.

Mmmmm…. Hi-def digital camcorder…. mmmmmm.

Sony introduces the Sony Handycam HDR-HC1, the world’s smallest and lightest high-definition consumer camcorder with full HD resolution based on HDV 1080i. The ultracompact HDR-HC1 Handycam camcorder fits comfortably in your hand, while delivering high-definition picture quality and lighting detail on both video and digital still images.

The HDR-HC1 features Sony’s CMOS imaging sensor technology, designed to deliver faster image processing speeds for richer colors, more vivid detail, and significantly less glare from reflected light. The Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens further enhances image clarity and richness, even when shooting in low light.

The HDR-HC1 weighs in at less than two pounds and fits comfortably in your hand. The HDR-HC1 also features a 2.7-inch wide hybrid, touch-panel LCD screen to access menu options. You can switch between 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios (in DV mode) to see exactly how your content will be viewed on television. Other convenient features include fully automatic controls, a built-in microphone for audio quality, an intelligent pop-up flash, and Super SteadyShot image stabilization. You can even record your own high-defnition video in complete darkness with Sony’s Super NightShot Infrared System, which adds the greatest amount of range and detail to your images in low- to no-light conditions.
