New camcorder designs from Sony

The compact DCRTRV19 offers a nice combination of features for a camcorder in this price range, with USB streaming video, a 10x optical Carl Zeiss zoom lens and sharp 2.5in LCD screen.

The Sony DCRTRV22 MiniDV has all of the features of the TRV19, with the added ability to capture digital still images onto a Memory Stick.

The top-of-the-range DCRTRV33 (shown) provides megapixel still images, which means you can comfortably take 4x6in photo-quality prints when using the DV camcorder as a digital still camera. Memory Stick Pro support allows you to use the latest 1GB Memory Stick Pro cards to store hundreds of digital still images or hours of Web-quality video on a card the size of a stick of chewing gum.

The 2.5in LCD screen also acts as a control panel: the user touches the various menu controls illustrated on the screen.

If you don’t need the digital still capabilities, the DCRTV19 is a strong choice, particularly if you prefer a smaller-sized camcorder to the traditional Sony TRV series. If you want to stream your video over the Web and take occasional digital snaps, the DCRTRV22 offers good value for money.

For users wanting to take megapixel still images, the TRV33 is the best option.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
