Sony DCR-IP1 MicroMV Handycam

 

The pricey DCR-IP1 is an incredibly small camcorder, but this does make it a little awkward to use.

For users who seek small above all, the DCR-IP1 is a compelling choice, but it costs twice as much as some MiniDV peers, and it uses pricey, hard-to-find media.

Product Specifications

Experience the smallest and lightest tape-based camcorder in the world! Sony's DCR-IP1 MICROMV Handycam delivers high-quality digital video footage, digital still images, precision digital zoom, and MPEG1 compressed video and audio, within a sleek 8 oz. package slightly larger than a deck of cards. The included multi-functional Handycam Station serves as your power supply/battery charger, S-Video terminal connection to supported TV/VCRs or i.LINK interface to your computer for video editing. Impressive touch panel operation technology enables you to access the camcorder functions with a touch of a finger. The minute camcorder body accepts both Memory Stick Duo and Memory Stick PRO Duo media. About one-third the size of standard-size Memory Stick media, a 512MB Memory Stick PRO Duo media card allows you to capture 900 one-megapixel digital images!
