Sony introduces tiny high-definition camcorder

By Derek Sooman on February 21, 2006, 2:30 PM
Sony Corp has introduced a high-definition camcorder that is small enough to rest comfortably in the palm of your hand. Home videos taken with the new camcorder will be viewable in high-definition quality, just so long as you own a new HD TV.

Sony engineers were able to make the camcorder smaller by decreasing the size of the lens and combining three computer chips into one.

Sony officials in Tokyo said the product is more likely to sell in Japan, where people are willing to pay for fancy gadgets.

I'm sure there are kids who are very rich who can throw it out the window and ask their parents for a new one. Obviously, we normal people with average incomes...won't.

I've got the HDR-HC1 and it's not big at all. I can understand the facination with miniturizing gadgets, but if my camcorder was any smaller it wouldn't feel right.
