The Sony HDR-UX1 is solidly constructed and capable of recording high-definition video directly to DVD discs. Other features include a 2.1-megapixel ClearVid CMOS sensor, Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lenses, 10x optical zoom, 3.5-inch LCD display, integrated microphone, a Memory Stick Duo card slot, USB 2.0 connectivity, and Sony’s NightShot infrared system. Product page here ($1,047). Here’s the bottom line:

Good-quality HD video; records in 5.1 Dolby surround sound; HDMI out port; uses compact 8cm DVD discs; excellent touch-screen menu and GUI; professional manual adjustable ring; external mic and earpiece ports. A very attractive high-end consumer camcorder that’s easy to use, but priced at consumers willing to pay a little extra for the new features
