Camcorders Buying Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Powerful shooting features made simple

Light and compact with quality video on 80GB hard disk drive. Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 25x optical zoom. 5.1 surround sound, SteadyShot and Face Index.

Sound all around

Surround sound adds an extra dimension of realism to your videos, just like at the cinema. 5.1 channel recording captures crisp, lifelike audio that sounds great on your home theatre system. Best of all, you don’t need extra microphones or cables: everything’s built in to the camcorder.

Find your footage

With hours of footage stored on your camcorder, it can be hard tracking down a particular scene. Face Index helps you find shots containing faces in an instant. Film Roll Index cuts longer recordings into shorter ‘chapters’, making it quicker and easier to find the right moment.

Ready for anything

Everyone knows the frustration of fumbling for your camcorder when something amazing happens… And then it’s too late. Flip open the LCD screen and you’re ready to start shooting in a fraction of a second. Standby battery drain is super-low, so you can always be ready to catch that special moment.

Have more fun with your video collection

It’s easy to manage your video clips and photos with Picture Motion Browser for your PC – included free with your camcorder. Sort, search and browse through all your clips and photos in an instant. Burn them to disc, email to friends or upload to social networking sites with a few clicks.

Super-fast backups

After shooting, it’s quick and easy to burn your footage onto DVD for safekeeping or sharing with friends. Just hook up the compact VRD-P1 DVDirect Express and burn those memories at super speed.
