Product Specifications

Sony is building on its pioneering position in the DVD camcorder market with the release of this new compact addition to its DVD Handycam range. As the second generation of this unique family, the DCR-DVD91 offers the latest cutting edge technology and has been redesigned in response to customer feedback; not only do this model features compact dimensions, it also is significantly lighter than current models (150g reduction). Easy and compact new features include an innovative "Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar" zoom lens for enhanced picture quality, a "Hybrid LCD" panel for displaying a clear image in any light conditions, a "Start/Stop Record button" on the LCD frame for easier operability up to a one Megapixel CCD and true 16: 9 widescreen mode for improved image acquisition on the premier model.
