Rugged Compact SD Card Camcorder

The SDR-SW21 is a rugged, waterproof, shockproof and dustproof camcorder wrapped up in a compact body. The water-proof casing allows underwater use up to a depth of 2 metres, even in the sea. The shockproof and dustproof composition protects against falls from up to 1.2 metres and makes it ideal for use in any outdoor situation. This camcorder is small and lightweight, made possible by the use of SD/SDHC Memory Cards, so you can shoot motion pictures with the same casual ease and carry-about convenience of a small digital camera.

The SDR-SW21 camcorder features the new YouTube Uploader function that makes video uploading super easy! Simply set the camcorder to "Web Mode" and it will record the movie in a YouTube compatible format. After shooting connect the camcorder via USB to a PC and the YouTube Uploader automatically starts. Simply follow the procedure to upload your video clips to the YouTube video-sharing site.

The SDR-SW21 camcorder offers a function that simplifies the process of copying recordings from the Memory Card or hard disk drive to a DVD. Simply connect the camcorder to a VW-BN1 DVD Burner (optional) and press the button. No PC is required. A DVD disc created this way can be easily played directly from a DVD player.
