Sony has released two new DVD Handycam camcorders, the DCR-DVD101 and DCR-DVD201, which weigh in at 490g and 650g, respectively, and are small enough to fit into a jacket pocket. Both models incorporate a mini-joystick controller on the body of the camera, to navigate through the camcorders’ menu systems. The camcorders record on three-inch DVD-R and DVD-RW media with each model incorporating a 2.5-inch LCD display with a start/stop record button on the frame. Pixela ImageMixer software is bundled for video editing and the product is available now from a number of distributors, including Blue Chip Infotech, MMT and Tech Pacific.
