Sony is taking another leap forward in miniaturization with today's introduction of the DCR-IP1 MICROMV™ Handycam® camcorder - the smallest and lightest tape-based camcorder in the world. Weighing just 8 ounces with pint-size measurements of 1 9/16 inches x 3 5/8 inches x 2 3/4 inches, the new camcorder is about the size of a deck of cards and slips into a shirt pocket with ease. The IP1 looks so good and feels so light, you can't resist picking it up and taking it with you wherever you go" said Steve Haber, senior vice president of the Personal Mobile Imaging Division at Sony Electronics.The camcorder's streamlined design still finds room for high-quality Carl Zeiss® optics, a 10X optical/120X precision digital zoom and a one-megapixel Advanced HADTM CCD imager. The imager can capture stills at 1152 x 864 resolution and produce video with 520 lines of horizontal video resolution. To protect this optics package so every video experience is as good as the first, the DCR-IP1 model is the first Sony Handycam camcorder to incorporate an automatic, retractable lens cover that opens and closes when the camcorder is powered on or off. And to help minimize camera shake, the camcorder adds Super SteadyShot® picture stabilization. more information of DCR-IP1

Samsung's New SCD5000, a Complete MiniDV Camcorder and Digital Still Camera .
The SCD5000's unique swivel lens mechanism permits easy switching between the two functions; one side of the assembly houses the camcorder lens and sensor and the other side holds the mechanism for the digital still camera.
The digital still camera function creates sharp images with 4.13 mega-pixel CCD resolution. Compared to most digital camcorders, which store low-resolution still images at 640 x 480 pixels, SCD5000 produces 2272 x 1704 images suitable for large size prints. Additionally, SCD5000's embedded strobe allows still picture taking in low light conditions. Other features include a 3x optical zoom for camera and swivel lens assembly. The images can be stored in Memory Stick media and transferred through USB ports.
As a digital camcorder, the SCD5000 features 680K pixel CCD, MiniDV and MPEG-4 recording. The lens allows users the option of a 10X optical or 800x digital zoom. Samsung's proprietary Power Nite Pix function greatly improves picture quality under unfavorable light conditions. And SCD5000's two-inch trans-reflective LCD viewfinder ensures optimal clarity even under direct sunlight. Captured footage is transferred through the IEEE1394 (FireWire) connector. More information.

Sony's new line of DVD HandycamR camcorders, introduced here today, advance the simplicity of making and sharing videos. The three new camcorders produce DVD recordings that play back in most current home and PC DVD players, as well as most later releases of PlayStationR2 game consoles.
As the DVD home player market continues to boom with U.S. household penetration surpassing 40 percent, Sony's new DVD camcorders (the DCR-DVD100, DCR-DVD200 and DCR-DVD300 models) record on 3-inch, DVD-R and DVD-RW media.
"There is a universe of more than 100 million products that can play back Sony's DVD camcorder recordings, making these DVDs one of the most compatible formats available," said Steve Haber, senior vice president of the Digital Imaging Products Division at Sony Electronics. "In addition to their incredible compatibility, DVDs also present one of the easiest ways to shoot, play and share video memories."
These new camcorders also capture JPEG still images for viewing on either your PC or TV. The DCR-DVD100 model captures 640 x 480 images, ideally sized for sharing as e-mail attachments, while the DCR-DVD200 and the DCR-DVD300 models incorporate a one-megapixel imager to produce higher quality video and still image resolution (1152 x 864). All three models can take thousands of still shots at the highest still resolution on a single 3-inch disc.
The disc-based recording system allows for quick access to favorite scenes and pictures without the fuss of rewinding and fast-forwarding. Thumbnail images of video are created from the start of every recorded scene.

Sony also have seven Mini DV camcorder in 2003.TRV19 ,TRV22 ,TRV33,TRV38 ,TRV39 ,TRV70 and
