The DCR-SR45 30GB Hybrid HDD/Memory Stick Camcorder is the entry-level system in Sony's hybrid HDD family. The 30GB HDD offers up to 20 hours of record time in the LP mode. Use Memory Stick PRO Duo or Memory Stick Duo media for transferring your video or stills to your PC for editing, emailing or printing. Adding to this camera's exceptional features would be the One Touch Disc Burn function that allows you to burn your data to DVD when connected to your PC via a USB cable.

The SR45 also features the Quick On 2 button for capturing the moment at a touch without having to wait an eternity for your camera to wake up. The 2.7" touch panel Clear Photo LCD Plus display rotates up to 270° and provides easy to navigate menus thanks to the touch screen. A built-in zoom mic offers exceptional audio, 40x optical zoom brings your subject in focus with clean, accurate detail while the Easy Handycam button shuts out advanced record functions allowing you to focus on capturing the moment and not worried about what button does what.
1/8" Advanced HAD CCD Sensor
The 1/8" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD sensor gives your video and still images exceptional accuracy and clarity with 340k (effective) pixels.
40x Optical Zoom
40x optical zoom brings your subject close and clear with no loss of video image.
2.7" Wide Touch Panel Clear Photo LCD Plus Display
The widescreen touch panel 2.7" LCD display rotates up to 270° for optimal recording from any angle. Now you can get any shot you want and frame what you're recording without losing the image.
Hybrid Recording to the 30GB Hard Disk Drive or Memory Stick Media
Record to the 30GB internal hard disk drive or to Sony's own Memory Stick Duo or Memory Stick PRO Duo (sold separately) recording media. Images from the HDD can be transferred in-camera to Memory Stick media. Use the Memory Stick media in your PC or compatible Memory Stick device for uploading to edit, email, or print.
Memory Stick PRO Duo Media Slot
The Memory Stick PRO Duo Media slot allows you to insert Memory Stick PRO Duo and Memory Stick Duo media (sold separately) for capturing video and still images.
Quick On-2
Don't ever miss the key moment again! One press of the Quick On button puts the camcorder into sleep mode, when you press the button a second time it comes on, ready to record.
Built-In Zoom Mic with 5.1 Channel Recording
When your camera's zoom goes in for the close-up so does the built-in zoom mic. The mic focuses on the sound coming from your subject, letting all other noises fall into the background for clear and accurate dialogue and sound.
Easy Handycam Button
Sony knows that camcorders can be complicated at times. That's why they give you the option to keep things simple with the Easy Handycam Button. This option locks out more complicated features. Only the buttons essential to recording remain unlocked, letting you concentrate on capturing and enjoying the moment.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lenses have been designed especially for consumer camcorders. These lenses offer the sharpness and quality of professional lenses.
InfoLITHIUM Battery with AccuPower Meter System
The InfoLITHIUM Battery with the AccuPower Meter System is one smart rechargeable battery. View remaining battery or charging time (in minutes) on the LCD or viewfinder so you always know where you're at with battery life. These batteries are not subject to memory effect which shortens battery life when you charge too often. Charge whenever you want without worry.
Stamina Battery Power Management System
The Stamina Battery Power Management System lets the camcorder extend InfoLITHIUM battery life for extra long recording.
Fader Effects 2
When ending or starting a scene a good option is the black or white fader effects for a smooth, professional looking transition
Face Index 2
The ingenious Face Index 2 technology lets you find the video scene you want by face. Choose from the faces displayed in the index and the scenes in which that person appears will be selected.
Film Roll Index 2
Sony makes finding scenes quick and user-friendly with the Film Roll Index 2. Much like the chapters in a book the index helps you find the video scenes you want by previewing the beginning. You also have the option to display scenes at intervals of 3, 6 and 12 seconds or 1 and 5 minutes.
One Touch Disc Burn
Supplied Software allows you to burn copies of your video or stills onto DVD when you connect via a USB cable to your PC and hit the One Touch Disc Burn button. It couldn't be easier!
Progressive Shutter System
This feature progressively scans your still images using an interlaced scanning system for detail and accuracy.
Super NightShot Infrared System
Ever want to record at night or in low light but can't? Well now you can. The Super NightShot Infrared System records with a slow shutter speed to capture video even in complete darkness (0 lux) providing video with both color and clarity
Multi-Language Menu
Choose from menus in English, English (simplified), Canadian French, Latin American Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese.
