NETHERLANDS. Dufri International has unveiled the latest line-up of Sony camcorders, which have been enhanced by significant technological advancements.

The camcorder portfolio includes a Full HD 3D Handycam camcorder, a built-in projector model and video enthusiast model.

The Sony HDR-TD10E claims to be the world’s first ‘Double Full HD’ 3D consumer camcorder. The camcorder employs an integrated dual lens system, which includes two of each key component – double Sony G Lenses, double ‘Exmor R’ CMOS sensors, and double ‘BIONZ’ image processors.

The dual recording system allows for 3D content to be played back in Full HD 2D automatically on non-3D displays, while 3D footage can be played back without glasses on the camcorder’s Xtra Fine 3.5-inch 3D LCD touch screen. Users can also play Full HD 3D videos on any 3D capable HDTV.

In addition to other innovative features, 10x optical zoom with Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode) and iAUTO are offered in 3D mode.

Providing 64GB of flash memory, the HDR-TD10E will be available in April 2011.

Offering what Dufri International describes as “the ultimate playback experience”, Sony’s new Handycam camcorders comes with a projector built into the 3-inch LCD panel. Not only does this maintain the camcorder’s compact size, it also allows video and images to be projected at up to 60 inches (diagonally when projected 6m away) onto walls, ceilings, or other flat surface.

Stereo speakers with Clear Phase and S-Master digital amplifier produce clear, dynamic sound. When this is combined with the integrated projector, a whole new way to enjoy video playback without needing to plug into an HDTV is achieved, the company said.

The HDR-PJ50VE with a 220GB Hard Disk Drive will be available in April 2011. The HDR-PJ30VE with 32GB of flash memory, and HDR-PJ10E with 16GB of flash memory will be available in March 2011.

Sony also introduced the enthusiast-level HDR-CX700VE with hallmark Handycam features including ‘Exmor R’ CMOS Sensor, Wide Angle Sony G Lens, Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode, Highlight Playback, Face Detection, and iAUTO. These are combined with new technologies such as 50p/25p recording, PMB portable (becomes compatible with Mac from April), built-in USB cable, Tracking Focus, and Event Browse for automatic grouping of content by events for easy playback.
