Sony today announces the new CCD-TRV238E (CCDTRV238E) Hi8 analogue camcorder - an ideal camcorder for first time home movie makers. The CCD-TRV238E Handycam delivers good picture quality and ease of use for all the family. The Sony CCD-TRV238E is due for release in January 2005.

The Sony CCD-TRV238E Camcorder

The Sony CCD-TRV238E Hi8 Handycam is an ideal introductory camcorder - no-nonsense camera functions, solid, easy to grip body, and 2.5-inch LCD display with easy to read menus make the CCD-TRV238 suitable for home movie makers of all ages.

Main characteristics of the Sony CCD-TRV238:

Powerful Zoom Lens

The 20X optical zoom on the Sony CCD-TRV238 Camcorder (CCDTRV238) ensures a clear, high quality picture throughout zooming to the subject. It takes a 37mm filter and can thus deliver better performance. The Sony CCD-TRV238 Handycam also features a 990x digital zoom facility.

STAMINA for Worry-free Recording

Sony’s STAMINA technology makes sure you have a worry free long recording time on the Sony camcorder. It is powered by infoLITHIUM battery that can provide continuous recording, rechargeable via a supplied AC adaptor. A Battery Info button displays available recording times and remaining charge level on the LCD display when activated. This function is accessible anytime when the Sony CCD-TRV238 Handycam is turned off.

Easy and Convenient

Ease of use is of prime concern for the Sony CCD-TRV238 Camcorder. Situated conveniently on the frame of the LCD monitor is a Start and Stop Record button and the secondary Zoom button for quick access when viewing the subject on the display or for during difficult shooting situations, even when you are holding the camera above your head.

Another enhancement is the Easy Handycam menu. With one-button access, this function locks out the more advanced features of the menu, giving the user a quick and easy selection of basic camera operation and recording settings to choose from. These are displayed on the LCD screen in large, easy to read characters.

NightShot Plus

Low-level light recording technology is incorporated in the form of Night Shot Plus, which can record in more natural colour in low-light environments.
