Nice to see Sony back in the news about something nice: the company has launched a new hard disk drive based camcorder. The camcorder, which will come with a 30GB capacity drive and provide up to 21 hours recording time, is called the DCR-SR90E, and features a 10x optical zoom and 120x digital zoom capability and a filter diameter of 30mm. It records in MPEG2, and features a built-in microphone that records in 5.1-channel surround sound.
