Sony brings hi-tech camcorders

Kathmandu: Nepa Hima Trade Link Pvt Ltd has expanded its High Definition (HD) and Standard Definition (SD) Handycam camcorder offerings with three new HD models utilizing hard disk as storage as well as two new additions in standard definition (SD) which utilize the HDD and Memory Stick™ formats for recording. Featuring new and improved digital imaging technologies, such as the ‘Exmor R’ image sensor and Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode), the latest Handycam® camcorders combine enhanced recording flexibility with exceptional image performance.

Advancing the digital imaging curve, Sony premieres the ‘Exmor R’ CMOS Sensor that captures significantly clearer images even in low light conditions. Adopting back-illuminated technology, the sensor utilises incident light more efficiently, nearly doubling sensitivity in comparison to conventional camcorder models. The impressive boost in sensitivity also reduces noise, offers higher image quality and smooth movement in low light conditions such as night scenes.

Combined with the BIONZ

image processor, the new ‘Exmor R’ CMOS Sensor delivers

higher resolution for still image recording and dual recording,

as well as enhanced smooth

slow recording. Compatible

with the new Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo HX™ (32GB), the storage media’s large storage capacity and high transfer speed make the capture and transfer of high-resolution videos and images extremely convenient.

“Sony values innovation and recognises the benefits that it brings to our customers. With the new Handycam® range, Sony has taken our digital imaging technologies to new highs to give our customers the best camcorder experience possiblem,” said Nepa Hima Trade Link Pvt Ltd representatives. — HNS
