It is known to all that Handycam is a Sony brand used to market its camcorder range. The first product using its name is the Video8 camcorder, which replaced Sony’s previous line of Betamax-based models. Using HandyCam as the new name of Sony’s camcorders emphasized the “handy” palm size nature of the camera for its new miniaturized tape format. After years of product innovation, Sony’s camcorder has become the first choice for most photographers. In particular, the series of HandyCam is a must-have for many families because of its excellent camera and light design. Not only that, the Video8 format is also developed to produce Hi8 (equivalent to S-VHS quality) and later Digital8, using the same basic format to record digital video.
