Remember the tricorders on Star Trek? They didn't need any tapes or moving parts to record high resolution sound and video, and now, neither do you! Utilizing an SD/SDHC memory card(optional), this camcorder uses less power, responds faster, and is more shock resistant than either disk or tape systems. (Even so, don't strap it to a soccer ball for those ball's-eye view shots: it ain't THAT shock resistant!)
A 2.07 mega pixel CMOS sensor gives you full 1920 x 1080 High Definition video and beautiful digital stills, aided and abetted by 12X power HD zoom, SuperRange Optical Image Stabilization, and Instant AutoFocus. Offering both 24p Cinema and 30p Progressive mode, it can record up to three hours on a 8GB SDHC card! A mini HDMI port gives you additional display choices, and the advanced accessory shoe lets you further enhance your capabilities with optional accessories.
