Winner of the prestigious Popular Mechanics Editors Choice award in 2005, this 3 Megapixel camcorder is the simplest way to record home videos in long-lasting DVD format, and it is the only camcorder that has a Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound microphone built-in for superior sound recording that enhances the viewing experience. The camcorder supports more DVD recording formats than other models, recording sharp video to a 3" mini-DVD-R/RW or DVD+RW disc, so your movies will play back on more DVD players and PCs than less versatile recorders and discs. A professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with an advanced optical coating reduces glare and increases contrast for vivid images, true-to-life color, and outstanding visual depth. The camera has 10X optical and 120X digital zooms, and at the touch of a button you can switch between 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios for varied shot composition. A single-sided disc holds 20 to 60 minutes of video, depending on resolution settings, or you can take up to 8,600 640 x 480 JPEG stills. The swiveling 2 3/4" color touch-pad-control LCD is easy to see even outdoors or in bright light, and the thumbnail menu makes scene selection easier. With steady shot stabilizing, infrared night viewing, USB interface for PC (cable included), rechargeable lithium battery, remote, and strap. 3 1/2" H x 2" W x 5 1/2" L. (1 lb.)
