The sony hc46 which is a model below that has a smaller zoom as well but the hc36 has a higher optical zoom. I have no idea why that is the case. I would like to know that as well
I'm comparing Sony Mini DV camcorders. The DCR HC96 is a higher end model, yet has only a 10x optical zoom and 120x digital zoom compared to a 20x optical and 800 digital for the DCR HC36 a much lower end model. Shouldn't the features improve for the better models? I'd like to get the HC96, but I feel like I am losing something.
Any help would be appreciated.
