Easy Camcorder
9 February 2007
  • Excerpt: Within Sony’s family of consumer camcorders, the mid-range DCR-HC46 ($599.99 MSRP) is quite an improvement over its step-down siblings, the HC26 and HC36. It features better image quality in bright light, a similarly easy to use design, and refined automatic controls. For buyers looking for image quality and simplicity at a reasonable price, this should be an alluring camcorder.
  • Pros: - Decent video performance, and very easy to use, - Great automatic controls, - Ergonomic palm-friendly design
  • Cons: - Value does not compare favorably with competitors, - No mic input and poor manual control interface and fearture set, - In the line-up below, only the DCR-HC36 scores lower

Sony DCR-HC46E

  • Excerpt: Budget camcorders Although at the budget end of the range, you can still expect great image quality and a healthy range of features A decade ago, when consumer digital camcorders first arrived on the market, they cost around £2,000. But these days, you can pick one up for under £300. Despite the price crash, these budget models are still capable of better image quality than some of the first premium units to arrive.

  • Excerpt: Изменения в дизайне, вызванные новым устройством кассетоприемника, имеющего теперь верхнюю загрузку, в этом году коснулись всех камер начального и среднего уровня. hc46, если сравнивать ее с прошлогодней моделью hc42, стала заметно толще, но ниже. многие считают, что такое изменение пошло камере на пользу, потому что держать в руках ее стало удобнее. но это — дело вкуса. из мелочей можно отметить новый дизайн слота для карт памяти ms duo pro.
  • Pros: очень хорошее качество видеоизображения при оптимальном уровне освещения, прекрасный широкоэкранный монитор, полноценный набор режимов съемки и полезных дополнительных функций, наличие в комплекте док-станции.
  • Cons: в паcмурную погоду и при слабом освещении AWB не всегда точен. Для контроля качества звука не хватает гнезда для наушников.

  • Conclusion: Bien que d’apparence assez passe-partout, le DCR-HC-46 cache quelques fonctions intéressantes à l’intérieur. Il dispose ainsi d’un bon capteur CCD qui lui permet de produire des vidéos de bonne qualité.
