Sony DCR HC46 Camcorder
Sony is taking the lead in bringing the focus on audio performance to the camcorder market with its new 2006 Handycam models. "Nothing preserves memories better than moving images with sound," said Linda Vuolo, director for camcorder products at Sony Electronics. "We are offering new enhancements to both audio and video performance in our 2006 product line." On the digital tape front, four new miniDV models aim to please cost-conscious video enthusiasts with prices beginning at about $350.
