A Brief Look At Some Of Sony's Mini Video Cameras

Jan 2, 2008
In January of 2005 in Las Vegas Sony released six brand new camcorders, here's a brief look at them.

Each one of the new video cameras came with a new Handycam Station to come along with the purchase. The Handycam Station allows the person with the video camera to take it anywhere. This incredible device can be a tabletop cradle or just on any hard surface. You can also plug the video camera right up to the TV so you can watch movies and home recordings on there as well.

Sony has designed these cameras so that people can better watch their homemade movies and recordings.

The six new mini DV Handycam camcorders were the DCR-PC1000, the DCR-PC55, the DCR-HC90, the DCR-HC32, the DCR-HC42, and the DCR-HC21. The prices of these binoculars range from $400.00 to $1300.00. All of these are pretty expensive but the price is justified by the quality.

Each new mini DV Handycam video camera came with certain set of features and each one either had better or even better. The DCR-HC21 has 20X Optical/800X digital zoom, and technology that improves image stabilization. The DCR-HC32 comes complete with a Memory Stick DUO media slot. The DCR-HC42 can put together a slide show, and has a 2.7 inch LCD screen that swivels. The DCR-PC55 is made with an automatic lens cover. The DCR-HC90 has a three megapixal CCD, it has a built in flash, and is designed to accommodate Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T*lens. The best of the mini DV Handycam camcorders, the DCR-PC1000 has a three-chip CMOS sensor.

The three-chip CMOS is sensor technology that is available in the DCR-OC900 and the DCR-OC1000 is a better imaging processor that provides the mini-camcorders with the best picture quality, and more lighting details. The three-chip CMOS uses less power. CMOS is short for the word complimentary metal oxide semi-conductor.

The Zeiss lenses that Sony has have a long standing history as being premium binocular lenses.

If you have a video camera or camera that's made by Sony and it breaks you should check out the return policy to see if you can get a new one. It is possible to get a new one that is if your item is still under warranty. You just have to fill out your warranty and send it in with of course the video camera so they can either fix the simple problems or send you a whole new video camera. It will probably take a little while but it will be worth having the warranty after you have a brand new video camera and not the broken piece anymore. It only takes a few minutes to look online and see if you can just fill out a simple defective product form or something like that. If not then you will just have to buy a whole new camera and be forced to buy something that you probably don't want because you wanted your video camera.
