    How much do you want hi-def? That's the question you'll have to answer
    when surveying the camcorder landscape at £1,200, where the Sony
    Handycam HDR-HC1 makes its debut. On one hand, the HC1's 2.8-megapixel
    CMOS sensor delivers visibly sharper 1080i HD video (via the HDV
    format) and standard MiniDV in a surprisingly compact, generally
    well-designed
    Features
    The Sony Handycam HDR-HC1's real draw is its ability to record 1080i
    hi-def video on standard MiniDV cassettes. It uses the recently
    implemented HDV format, which employs MPEG-2 compression rather than
    DV. Not much software currently supports HDV for digitising, and the
    packages that do tend to be expensive products such as Adobe Premiere
    Pro 1.5 and Apple Final Cut Pro 5.0. So the HC1 also provides HD-to-DV
    down-conversion for editing or playback on a standard-def (SD) TV.
    Like its big brother, the HDR-FX1, it incorporates Sony's Cinematic
    mode for simulating the appearance of 24fps film. It can also record
    standard DV. The camcorder supports component-video output and
    supplies the necessary cables, but if you have a FireWire port on your
    TV, you'll get the best playback quality that way.
