Capturing Memories with Sony Handycam
This summer has been a busy one and it’s only the beginning of July. We have been to San Antonio and Galveston for some local staycation fun. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to take the Sony Handycam with us on our Texas adventures!
I never realized how much I could love a video camera until I had the opportunity to use the Handycam. It has been amazing to quickly pull it out and catch those cute moments that need a little bit more than a still shot can capture. Whether W is running down the beach as he discovers the Gulf of Mexico for the first time or is just playing at home with a new toy. It’s amazing to be able to have those memories captured forever.
The Best Video & Audio
Handycam camcorders feature “Exmor R”™ CMOS sensor to help deliver great videos in low-light. They also include features like focus tracking, face detection and smile shutter, Up to 60x optical zoom – that’s 60 times more zoom than a cell phone, Optical SteadyShot™ with Active Mode lets you say goodbye to shaky video and Uncompressed Full HD 1080 60p video.
Sound is extremely important when capturing memories for the future. The Handycam features Sony sound expertise including a built-in zoom microphone and wind-noise reduction. I was able to capture the sound of W’s voice when I was 15 feet away and other kids were running around the splash pad!
What does all of this mean? My videos look great even though I barely have any experience! You have to love that!
Memories for the Future
I cherish my memories more than ever these days. I want to remember every single thing W has ever done. Even with the hundreds of photos I have taken, memories fade with time. With the Handycam, I have some of those special moments captured on video. Twenty years from now I can break out the videos and reminisce.
I wish I had the camcorder back when W was younger. I would have loved to catch him rolling over and smiling for the first time. I would love to have more video of him with my sister before she passed away.
So why Choose a Handycam?
Share the Memories with Ease
The Sony Handycam makes sharing your memories simple! Just this weekend I was able to share a video of W with my brother-in-law’s girlfriend moments after it was taken with the built-in projector. I am a huge fan of that feature and it is now a must-have for me!
The camcorder features some other great features to make sharing easier including:
- Highlight playback to enjoy video clips quickly and easily
- PlayMemories™ software provides easy online sharing through sites like YouTube™ and Facebook™
- Built-in USB cable for easy download and charge (my other favorite feature and another must-have for me!)
Sony Handycam is Better by Design
The Sony Handycam includes design features that I have come to depend on including:
- Long battery life (up to 11 hours)
- Large touch-screen LCD
- Intuitive feature navigation
- Shoot still photos while shooting video
- GPS with in-camcorder maps
These features coupled with the built-in USB and projector make this a camcorder I want to own for many years! I know we will have hundreds of firsts and memories that I will want to remember for years to come!
