Sony's new DSR-PDX10 DVCAM camcorder combines a compact design with sophisticated features such as web transfer of still images, as well as streaming of live video and VTR playback through an integrated USB port when connected to a computer. weighing slightly less than three pounds fully equipped, the camcorder integrates a 1/4.7 inch 3-CCD (the smallest HAD CCD ever offered in the DVCAM line), offers superb picture quality (530 lines of horizontal resolution and 12X optical zoom), both DVCAM and DV format recording capability and an integrated Memory Stick® recording media slot. The DSR-PDX10 also incorporates the ability to edit and record up to 85 minutes of MPEG-based video on 128MB Memory Stick media. The camcorder also features a Sony i.LINK® IEEE 1394 digital video interface, as well as composite and S-video analog video I/Os. The DSR-PDX10 camcorder is expected to be available this summer for a suggested list price of $2,900.
Sony's new DSR-DU1 hard-disk drive provides videographers with a novel solution for hard-disk recording and playback in the field. Featuring an i.LINK interface, the unit attaches directly to the back of a compatible DVCAM camcorder, via camera adaptor or via an i.LINK cable, to a compatible portable camcorder for simultaneous disk and tape-based recording. The unit can record up to three hours of DVCAM and DV video. It also offers eight seconds of cache recording, minimizing the chances of missing a shot. The unit is expected to be available this summer for a suggested list price of $2,100. --More information of PDX10 and DSR-DU1----thanks Frank

Sony final news of TRV950....SAN DIEGO, April 4, 2002 -In a move bound to make demanding video buffs take a second look, Sony today announced the DCR-TRV950 Mini DV Handycam® camcorder, the industry's first three-CCD (charge-coupled device) camcorder to include one million pixels per CCD imager for high quality video recordings.

Designed for the "prosumer," the DCR-TRV950 uses Sony's Advanced HAD™ three-CCD system to create professional-quality video with unbeatable color clarity, detail and performance. Compared to a single CCD imager found on most consumer camcorder models, a three-CCD system, like the one with the DCR-TRV950 captures much more precise results. Each of the megapixel CCD imagers are dedicated to a primary color and separate the light that passes through the lens into individual color components for noticeably sharper images and colors.

For more true-to-life results in darker settings, the three-CCD imagers of the DCR-TRV950 use Advanced HAD technology, which allows more light to reach the imager in order to reduce common video noise that would otherwise affect video quality.

"In the TRV950, we've made a camcorder for the person who knows their way around consumer video, but who craves a professional level of quality," said Steve Haber, senior vice president of the Digital Imaging Products Division at Sony Electronics. "While not a professional camcorder, it produces results that are of a quality to be used by consumers who want take their video footage to the next level." -------More TRV950 information(English)....or Sony(Japan)Available in Japan 10/June/2002.............Thanks Frank
