Sony Handycam DCR-HC40


Ce caméscope très maniable est destiné à la famille. Le Sony conviendra particulièrement aux personnes qui ne n'envisagent pas d'utiliser les fonctionnalités avancées. En mode automatique, la qualité des images est d'ailleurs satisfaisante.

Product Specifications

Sony DCR-HC40E compact MiniDV Digital Handycam provides a combination of high picture quality and ease-of-use. It features a new horizontal body design and incorporates a range of enhancements including Carl Zeiss lens, NightShot Plus, Easy Handycam operation and Memory Stick Duo slot. The new model is not only compact and lightweight, but is ergonomically sound. It incorporates touch-screen technology for access to the Handycam menu system and a built-in lens cover for enhanced convenience. Among the advancements, one in particular is the new NightShot Plus system that allows for recording in darkness, while delivering more natural colors to videos. That ensures no residual images even when shooting fast moving objects. To provide beginners with a one-stop solution, the new Easy Handycam button simplifies the choice of menu features with a limited set of commands for basic operation on the LCD screen in large, easy-to-read characters. With almost all settings on automatic, learning to shoot videos is much easier. The camcorder can resume to the normal function Regular Mode, making the model perfect for both beginners and advanced users. The DCR-HC40E comes equipped with Sony's new video editing software - Picture Package - that offers an extremely easy way to create music videos on Video CDs. By connecting the Handycam with a PC via a USB or i.LINK (IEEE1394), users can modify their videos with music or special effects and burn the videos directly onto Video CDs. The DCR-HC40E offers Sony's unique Mega Pixel Engine and a 1 Mega Pixel CCD for high definition videos and excellent color reproduction with an ultra compact Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens for superior image capture. The Mega Pixel Engine uses ultra high speed signal processing to convert analog signals to digital signals at high speed, resulting in superior color reproduction. In addition to providing true 16: 9 wide screen mode by using the whole area of the Mega Pixel CCD, it also allows for direct recording in 16: 9 mode onto the tape. Users can take full advantage of the wide screen functionality to play back videos on 16: 9 screen televisions.
