It was time to get a new videocamera. Not just because the new one I picked up has cool new technology, but more importantly, my old one uses a now defunct recording method called Micro MV (Sony stopped selling Micro MV videocamera’s and cassettes years ago). I bought my earlier one 6 years ago and it was on the bleeding edge of technology then since it was small and light for the day.
The last thing I wanted was to have the camera die and be stuck with a bunch of tapes that I cannot do anything with. Additionally, the editing software does not handle this format any longer and when I copy the videos from the cassette to my PC, the audio is delayed a few seconds for the entire tape. Not a good place to be, hence the want/need for a new videocamera.
Since I’ve had the new camera for only about a week, I will write a full review next month. So far I love it. It is small and light enough (at only 10 oz.) to put in your pocket and takes beautiful HD video on a memory stick. There are a host of additional features that make it well worth buying, but I will go in to that detail later when I review the unit fully.
