The Sony HDR-HC9 is designed with the advanced user in mind with a host of manual features found only up to now in it's professional big brothers. With spot metering and focus, manual focus to infinity, peaking and center marker features, the HDR-HC9 takes these more advanced shooting tools and applies them to popular consumer features like dual mode recording (movie and still) through it's 3 MP ClearVid CMOS sensor (6mp stills), 1080i conversion, and Sony's Super SteadyShot optical image stabilization. Microphone and headphone jacks round out what is essentially an advanced consumer grade camcorder.
