Tip & How-To about Cameras

Sony HD videos Review:Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110 Camcorders and cameras could be the electronic devices that you would never get rid of. There are special events and memorial moments like wedding, sports, birthday party, a long trip in South Africa and so on. While choosing a camcorder with less than $500 bucks, what models would you consider? There are popular brands like Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Canon. Each manufacture promotes products with different attractive points. Here I would like to take a look at two new release Sony camcorders, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and Sony Handycam HDR-CX110, for entry-level consumers as examples. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 could be taken as one of the ultra-compact camcorders with the light weight, while Sony Handycam HDR-CX110 is general camcorder. Both AVCHD camcorders are wonderful with HD recording at 1920x1080, and there are bundled tools for some camcorders. However, the Mac version of PMB portable only seems to support Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 now, and there is no news for Sony HDR-CX110 yet. To make full use of AVCHD camcorder, you can use AVCHD MTS/M2TS converter for easy video editing and importing to software like Adobe Premiere, Avid. Let's have a look at the comparison chart for the two models: Even though Sony HDR-CX110 is more expensive and larger than a mini-camcorder, this model includes a 25x zoom lens for better video and picture. However, Cyber-shot also includes higher effective sensor resolution to 10.2 megapixels. The AVCHD videos with MPEG4 AVC/H.264 video codec provide high quality. Since the videos are recorded with interlace, while playing AVCHD MTS/M2TS videos on computer, you shall remember to deinteralce .mts for smooth playback. If your eye is not that critical for images, the two models Cyber-shot DSC-TX7 and HDR-CX110 could be your first camcorder for HD video. If you are looking for a higher quality camcorder, a higher cost will be ready for around a thousand bucks like Sony Handycam HDR-XR520V, HDR-CX550V, Canon Vixia HV30 or other AVCHD camcorders. Fortunately, the AVCHD camera MTS converter from Aunsoft Studio supports the AVCHD camcorders listed above, and you can play and edit HD videos on both Windows and Mac.

It's capable of shooting AVCHD 1080p video; you can tell the camera what to do by tapping the icons on its touch screen.
