Sony manufactures a variety of consumer electronic products including laptops, tablets and televisions. They also have developed a range of video camcorders for capturing your most important memories. Amongst these camcorders are the Digital8 camcorder, which uses high quality film to capture and process moving images.
Features and benefits of Sony camcorders
Sony camcorders typically feature deep zoom capabilities using true optical zoom, with some camcorders featuring optical zoom depths of up to 30x optical zoom, extended zooms up to 60x and digital zoom capabilities up to 990x. Additionally, these camcorders ensure that the image quality isn't lost and maintains the quality using exceptional image stabilisation.
Some Sony camcorders come with autofocus lock (AF) which helps in the tracking of moving subjects by locking on to them. This feature will then change the target's frame size in line with your subject's own characteristics, ensuring the size and proportionality of the various elements in the shot are maintained.
Sony camcorders feature support for multiple input and output types, so you can connect your camcorder to an external device to download or upload video to and from your Sony camcorder. Input types include HDMI, one of the universal standards for data transfer, which delivers very fast data transfer rates. They also typically feature micro USB ports, which enable you to connect a variety of peripherals such as mobiles and smartphones and external hard disk drives for moving data to and from these devices.
