Sony announced that it will be introducing 11 hard disk drive and flash memory-based camcorders in Canada this coming spring including seven HD models.

Sony will offer entry-level HD camcorder options in both hard drive (HDR-XR150) and flash memory (HDR-CX110) formats. The HDR-XR150 features a 120GB hard drive for up to 50 hours of HD video (LP mode), while the HDR-CX110 allows for customizable capacity with the purchase of a memory card. These camcorders feature: 25X optical zoom lens, 3.1-megapixel still photos, image stabilization and a 2.7" LCD screen (230K resolution).

The HDR-XR150 and HDR-CX110 will be available in February for about $750, and $600, respectively. The HDR-CX110 will come in black, blue, and red.

Sony says all of its 2010 HD camcorders will offer its back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor which the company claims offers improved image quality and auto focusing capabilities in low light situation.

Other features include 1920 x 1080 high-definition video recording at up to 24Mbps in the AVCHD format, improved image stabilization, face recognition, 60p output, a new user interface and the ability to down-convert from AVCHD to MPEG2 in order to burn to a DVD.

For wide angle videographers, some of the new camcorders will also include a wide angle G lens that captures approximately 2x larger shooting area than previous models, enabling users to make sure nobody is left out of the picture indoors or to capture more of the scenery outdoors.
