Sony MiniDV Camcorder ( Model DCRHC52 )
The DCR-HC52 MiniDV is a high quality and versatile camcorder. The Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens and Super SteadyShot image stabilization capture clear, sharp video while powerful 40X optical/2000X Digital Zoom brings you closer to the action. View it all on the 2.5" touch panel SwivelScreen LCD display that puts control of everything at your fingertips.
The 1/6" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD with 340K effective pixels provide stunning detail and clarity with exceptional video with up to 500 lines of horizontal resolution.
The 40X optical zoom helps to bring the action close up from far away. In addition the 2000x digital zoom interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms. Professional Quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lenses are designed specifically for compact camcorders, and use precision-ground optics to maintain the sharpness and contrast achieved with larger lenses.
The 2.5" LCD screen provides exceptional viewing clarity with a 123K pixel resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback.
When using the Sony InfoLithium battery, the Stamina Battery Power Management System helps the camcorder prolong battery life for extra long continuous recording times from a single charge.
