Tiny HD Camcorder from Sony

Sony who the kings of making things small have been working on a new Camcorder named the Handycam HDR-CX6EK. This is a HD (high definition) camera and weighs just 370g without the battery. The lens is by Carl Zeiss and is capable of a nice 10x optical zoom. To store all this data it uses Sonys own format which is the Memory Stick DUO which currently maxes out at 8GB. With the 8GB stick you can still store 1 hour of 1080i video and up to 3 hours on the lowest quality. The camcorder can also be used as a camera and it snaps shots at 6.1 mega pixels.

As well as being small and powerful the camera does have some other cool features. It has Face Index which detects faces and can highlight faces with in a picture which we assume can automatically zoom or follow around.

The camcorder will cost around $1200+ when launched in July and no date is set for a UK launch yet.
