The HDR-HC3 HDV 1080i Handycam is 26 percent more compact than its HDR-HC1 predecessor.
Sony has introduced the HDR-HC3 HDV 1080i Handycam, a small and light HDV 1080i camcorder.
The HDR-HC3 is 26 percent more compact than its HDR-HC1 predecessor. The HDR-HC3 features a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens and Sony's new ClearVid CMOS Sensor technology, which has been engineered to boost picture resolution and clarity.
The camcorder shoots 4-Megapixel still images, stored on an optional Memory Stick PRO Duo media card, for easy transfer between compatible devices.
It has a dual record function that allows users to shoot video and simultaneously capture 2.3 Megapixel stills (16:9) in high definition mode and 1.7-Megapixel stills (4:3) in standard definition mode. The camera also records slow motion video, which plays back three seconds of video in 12 seconds.
While the primary market for the HDR-HC3 is consumers, the lightweight HDV camera may fulfill the acquisition needs of journalists in certain circumstances.
