MediaREADY Recon

MediaREADY on Monday introduced its first-ever DV cameras, giving them a unique twist to reflect their creator's roots. The Recon and Recon Pro both emphasize media playback: the basic Recon model offers MP3 songs with lyrics as well as MP4 video, while the slimmer but more advanced Pro edition adds WAV and WMA. Each also holds 32MB of internal flash memory and can record voice by itself in addition to movies.

Besides format support, camera quality and storage also dictate the differences between models. In addition to recording video, the Recon Pro captures still images at a native 5 megapixels and at an interpolated 12 megapixels, with image stabilization as well as an SD card slot for longer-running videos. The basic Recon is intended as a first-time camera and uses a more modest 3.2-megapixel sensor (5 megapixels interpolated), removes SD storage, and can run on only two AA batteries. MediaREADY ships the two in March at $149 for the base Recon and $249 for the Recon Pro.
