A highly compact and lightweight camcorder, the SDR-S71 improves upon its predecessor the SDR-S50 by offering dedicated SD Card recording. SD Cards are readily available, fast and inexpensive, and accessible by nearly all modern computers for home video editing. The SDR-S71 also includes special features that allow you to produce high-quality movies with ease.
One of the highlights of the SDR-S71′s design is its powerful 70x optical zoom. Of course, with such a great zoom range, handshake becomes an issue. That’s why Advanced O.I.S. handshake stabilisation is included to give you a better image. Couple this with a 33mm (35mm equivalent) wide-angle lens, iA focus technology and wind-noise cancellation, and you’ve got yourself a pretty powerful pocket DVC. In addition, the included software makes sharing your videos with your friends quick and easy. The SDR-S71 is an all-round performer.
