Sony has a camcorder to match your personal video-making style with its new line of DVD and Mini DV tape Handycam camcorders. “Our new DVD camcorder models feature enhancements and sophisticated technologies across the line to deliver benefits to satisfy the varying recording, sharing and archiving needs of different customers, depending on their preferences,” said Linda Vuolo, director for camcorder products at Sony Electronics. Sony is introducing the new Sony DVD408 camcorder for busy people who can appreciate the advantages of recording directly to disc, easy playback on DVD players, effortless sharing of home movies on a disc, and instant archiving of video footage.
The escalation of sharing user-created content on the Internet has generated demand for camcorders that offer simplified recording and virtually effortless video sharing. Sony US is responding to this demand with a new HDD model for its 2007 Handycam camcorder lineup: Sony DCR-SR62. Pre-orders for these products will begin tomorrow at sonystyle.com/Handycam as well as for sale in March at Sony Style retail stores and authorized dealers nationwide beginning in March 2007. “The long recording times of our hard disk drive camcorders are designed to capture life’s unscripted times, beyond school plays and music recitals,” said Linda Vuolo, director of marketing for camcorder products at Sony Electronics.
