Dubai-UAE: 03 April, 2013 – Sony, the leading consumer electronics brand, today announced the launch of the Handycam HDR-PJ790 camcorder that delivers Full HD video and pristine still images. The new camcorder features higher brightness for built-in projection and a range of advanced performance capabilities.
Taking the ultimate theatre experience to the next level, the Sony Handycam HDR-PJ790 camcorder’s built-in projector gets a boost in brightness with a high-contrast 35 lumen projector. The compact, LED-based projector built into the flip-out LCD panel of the camcorder can project video and images up to 100-inch diagonal onto any flat surface with upgraded resolution for an even clearer, sharper picture. The external HDMI input lets users project content from compatible smartphones, tablets or PCs – movies, slideshows, web pages, games – onto any flat wall or surface. This model also features a high sensitivity microphone and an advanced sound processor for rich audio results.
What’s more, the 24.1MP camcorder offers manual control and minimal shake when shooting on the move with its Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization. The Exmor R CMOS Sensor allows users to shoot 24.1MP still images and video concurrently without missing any part of the action.
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when captured in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p/24p Full HD video. Multiple connectivity options allow the footage to be shared on the big screen simply through connecting the camcorder to a compatible HDTV with an HDMI™ cable.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization compensates for a greater degree of camera shake, ensuring significant blur reduction and stunningly smooth video. This powerful image stabilizer makes it much easier to shoot crisp blur-free images in a range of challenging situations using a floating lens unit which controls the entire optical path, including the image sensor.
The high quality video is equally complimented with superior audio. The top-mounted 5.1 surround sound microphone is independent and isolated from the camcorder for premium audio capture. The new Advanced Sound System offers a wider dynamic range and crisper, cleaner sound while Audio REC level adjustments deliver better creative control.
The new camcorder is embedded with advanced capture and control features that are often considered the domain of professional cameras. A convenient assignable dial provides manual control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris and shutter speed, plus the ability to experiment with more advanced features such as zebra and peaking.
The new HDR-PJ790 Full HD Camcorder is currently available across Jumbo Electronics showrooms and other leading electronics retailers in the UAE.
