Weighing in at about 16 ounces, the compact camcorder combines a one-megapixel imager with Carl ZeissÂ® optics
to produce video with 520 lines of horizontal resolution that has crisp detail and color clarity. The new camcorder also incorporates an intelligent pop-up flash to ensure that the still images (1152 X 864) are captured in bright and vivid resolution even in tough lighting situations.
In addition to its slimmed down design, the new camcorder features a futuristic two-tone finish of silver and metallic blue.
“This Handycam camcorder exemplifies Sony’s strength in miniaturization and style,” said Steve Haber, senior vice president of the Digital Imaging Products Division at Sony Electronics.
