Sony intros HDR-SR5C camcorder with 100GB hard drive

Sony's got a new camcorder for those that prefer to keep things hard drive-based, with its new HDR-SR5C model upping the on-board storage capacity to a mighty 100GB. Apart from that notable spec, the cam will give you a 10x optical zoom, a 2.1 megapixel "ClearVid" CMOS sensor, a Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens, a 2.7-inch widescreen LCD and, of course, the requisite Memory Stick Duo slot (for capturing still images). You'll also get Sony's trademark SteadyShot picture stabilization system, 5.1channel Dolby Digital audio recording, and a couple of nifty features like smooth slow video recording for those looking to analyze their golf swing or re-enact their favorite experiment from MythBusters. While Sony will gladly take your order now, to the tune of $1,300, you'll have to wait until July 9th or so for the camera to actually ship.
