sony handycam

Sony has certainly not held back at IFA 2010, with two more camcorders (standard definition, unfortunately for those of you seeking for something that is state-of-the-art) – the Handycam DCR-SX15E and Handycam DCR-SR15E. Despite flying the standard definition banner, both models are touted to deliver decent video quality, coming with high-power 50x optical zoom lenses, SteadyShot image stabilization, and automatic Face Detection. A thumb-operated joystick located beside the flip-out 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD display allows you to fiddle with settings and menus in a jiffy, while an Auto mode will let you switch the video light on whenever natural light levels run low. What makes the difference between the two would be the Handycam DCR-SX15E running on either a Memory Stick or SD memory card since it lacks any form of internal memory (sad), while the Handycam DCR-SR15E lets you record up to 61 hours of Standard Definition video on its 80GB built-in hard drive, now how about that? No word on pricing at press time, but both models will hit the market sometime next month.
