Sony HDR HC3

Home video enthusiasts all across North America are impressed with the vast range of recording features offered by the Sony HDR-HC3 handycam video camera. With both HD and SD modes of recording, you can make the move to high definition without retaining compatibility with standard definition equipment.

The HC3 video camera sets the new standard in resolution quality with its clear vid image sensor, which captures precise detail and superior color. The dual record mode will allow you to capture 2.3 megapixel stills while shooting high definition video.

The smooth slow recording captures fast movement with precise detail for playing back in slow motion. Now, you can record what you want however you want to record it. The HC3 from Sony is everything you could expect and more.

2.1 megapixel clear vid CMOS sensor

The clear vid CMOS sensor provides a level of stunning detail and clarity with amazing video and still image performance. Unlike the traditional CCD imagers, CMOS sensors require much less power, which provides better performance for your battery.

Dual record

While you record in HD, you also have the ability to capture a 2.3 megapixel still image directly to the memory stick duo media.

HDV/DV format recording

The HDR-HC3 is capable of recording and playing back both HD and SD video recorded on the standard Mini DV tape.

Real time HD codec engine

Sony developed a real time MPEG encoding and decoding system with a reduced energy consumption along with a compact size to fit inside of a personal video camera. The codec engine provides MPEG 2 compression, with the recording and playback of clear HD images at the same bit rate of DV.

10X optical/80X digital zoom

The optical zoom provided by the HDR-HC3 will bring the action up close from far away. The digital zoom interpolation will make the digital zooming clearer, with less distortion.

Touch panel

The 2.7" wide (16:9) LCD screen will provide an excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 211K pixel LCD screen rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, while providing a sharp, detailed image for monitoring or playback. The widescreen format makes shooting in 16:9 mode and composing shots easier than ever before.

With amazing features and video quality, the Sony HDR-HC3 high defintion video camera is truly one of the best Sony offers. If you've been looking for the perfect HD camera, the HDR-HC3 offers you more features than you can shake a stick at.
