HDR line and the perfectly midrange flash-based Handycams. These buggers include Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lenses, a 60x optical zoom, 1/8-inch 680k-pixel CCD imagers and instant recording to three-inch DVDs. Thankfully, there's also the option of capturing to a Memory Stick PRO Duo card, and the DVD850 even adds 16GB of internal storage for the truly indecisive. The pair also features a 2.7-inch LCD touchpanel and Steady Shot image stabilization, and they'll run you $430 and $300 in order of mention when they ship next month.
