AVCHD CAMCRDR ULTRA COMPACT Don't be fooled by its miniscule size. Sony's HXR-MC50U HD camcorder may fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, but with it comes a small world of big possibilities. With HD picture quality to rival that of its "big brother" cameras, the ability to shoot still images as well as video, low light capability for nighttime shooting, an intuitive touch screen viewfinder, a detachable shotgun microphone, and a built-in GPS that keeps track of locations, it's the optimum HD tool to add to your production arsenal. Just stick it in your vest pocket or stuff it in your camera bag and you're good to go. It fulfills the needs of journalists, shooters and directors who have been waiting for precisely this kind of compact, high-sensitivity camcorder. And as a B-roll camera, the HXR-MC50U seamlessly intercuts with other cameras for an affordable multi camera setup. Delivering 1920 x 1080i high-definition image clarity, this camera's performance clearly makes the grade, and its small, compact size makes it ideal for shooting in confined spaces or for use as a POV camera. It's also no accident why this camera is the obvious choice for a crash camera.
