The kind of hand-shake that is common when shooting while walking or otherwise moving is also suppressed by a new Active mode, which extends the hand-shake correction range to ensure beautiful images on the move.
Weighing only 227g (0.50 lb), the HDC-SD10 and HDC-TM10 are the world’s lightest AVCHD format full-HD camcorders and reduced fatigue even for long shooting sessions. Their compact size lets them fit into the palm of the hand, for anywhere, anytime recording of high-quality, 1920 × 1080 full-HD images. These compact camcorders can be easily slipped into a handbag or a pocket, ready to capture video images with snapshot ease.
The high-powered 16x optical zoom clearly captures even distant subjects, while the Advanced O.I.S. minimises blurring. This stabilization function is essential for preserving full-HD image quality when zooming, where hand-shake increases proportionally to the level of magnification. Advanced O.I.S., which detects and corrects for hand-shake around 4,000 times per second, combines with the 16x optical zoom helps to produce clear, stable zoom shots. The new Active mode also extends the hand-shake correction range to allow shooting while walking or otherwise moving. Its powerful corrective effect reduces the kind of hand-shake that often occurs when shooting while walking, to ensure crisp, clear images.
The HDC-SD10 and HDC-TM10 feature the iA (Intelligent Auto) function, which automatically sets the most suitable Scene mode according to shooting conditions. These include Advanced O.I.S., which compensates for hand-shake to help reduce blurring; Face Detection, which adjusts the exposure so faces are captured perfectly; Intelligent Contrast Control, which helps ensure proper contrast; and Intelligent Scene Selector, which determines the shooting conditions and automatically selects the Scene setting that will provide optimal results.
Both camcorders are also equipped with AF/AE Tracking, which automatically tracks a moving subject for consistently beautiful results. AF/AE Tracking, which was very popular in previous models, differs from normal auto settings in that, once the user touches a selected subject on the touch-screen — the subject can be at the centre of the screen or at an edge — and locks onto the subject, AF/AE Tracking maintains the focus and exposure even if the subject moves or turns to one side. This records the subject with the optimal AF/AE (Auto focus/Auto exposure) settings.
The HDC-SD10 and HDC-TM10 lead the way for future camcorders, both in image quality and compact convenience. They are great not only for recording special occasions like vacations and weddings, but for capturing everyday situations in breathtaking, full-HD images. They represent a whole new breed of camcorders that give users the freedom to enjoy more active shooting styles.
