Digit LIVE news - Sony to sell hard disk camcorder

Sony's new DCR-SR100 will cost $1,100 in the US when introduced in March. It has a 30GB hard disk and stores in MPEG2 format.

All cameras will eventually use hard disks, especially with disk capacities increasing and the availability of decent editing packages for both PC and Mac users.

There are 3 modes, HP, SP and LP storing at 9, 6 and 3Mbps respectively allowing between 7hrs 20 mins and 20hrs 50 mins of recording time.

UK availability hasn't been announced.
