Sony Electronics has unveiled its new Digital Handycam camcorder for the consumer market that lets users edit, archive and convert analog home videos to digital with Sony’s newest Digital Handycam. New features of the new DCR-TRV9 Digital Handycam include NightShot for recording in complete darkness, using an infrared transmitter as a light source. It has an i.Link digital video interface (IEEE 1394) for bi-directional transfer and editing between two DV sources, or a DV camcorder and a computer, with reduced quality loss from generation to generation; and Super Steadyshot image stabilization that uses motion sensors inside the camcorder to detect and compensate for hand shake and vibration. The DCR-TRV9 has a 3.5-inch swivel-screen color LCD monitor and color viewfinder, a 15X optical/180X digital zoom lens and a photo mode to record up to 510 individual still photos on a one hour DV cassette. The DCR-TRV9 is due out in April for $2,300.
