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.

The midrange models are the HDR-XR350V, with a 160GB hard drive; HDR-CX350V, with 32GB of flash memory; and HDR-CX300, with 16GB of flash memory.

These HD camcorders have the following step-up features from the entry level models: Wide angle G lens (29.8mm for video and 27.4mm for still images); image stabilization with Active Mode from Wide to Telephoto; 12X optical zoom; 7-megapixel still photos and embedded GPS (except HDR-CX300).

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.
