Product Specifications

The DCR-DVD910 matches powerful features with ease of use. The ClearVid CMOS sensor (with Exmor technology) and BIONZ image processor capture sharply detailed images. Face Detection technology is also included, improving your video and still images by adjusting focus, color and brightness of faces in the shot. For superb sound reproduction, the built-in zoom microphone with Dolby Digital 5.1 channel recording syncs with the camera's zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialog and crisp, discrete sounds. The DCR-DVD910 is also quite flexible, allowing you to record everything directly to DVD or removable Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick PRO Duo media using Hybrid recording technology.
