Sony Announces HD 1080i Consumer Video Camera

The world of consumer HD continues to advance with the introduction of Sony’s HDR-FX1 Handycam®. Besides recording in 1080i, specifications include three 1/3-inch CCDs, recording in 16:9 aspect ratio, and camera settings to create a film-like feel. While all of us would surely enjoy video of little Johnny’s day at the park in 1080i, the camera may not be for everyone with a list price of $3,700. The HDR-FX1 will be available in November.
