Worrying about battery life isn’t an issue when it comes to the HDV-T900 camcorder from Jetyo. In addition to running off a set of 4xAAA batteries which can pretty much be replaced anywhere on Earth, it also features a set of flip out solar cells that can be used to recharge those batteries, if they’re of the rechargeable persuasion. Unfortunately that’s the only feature that makes this camcorder stand out in an already crowded market, but it seems to have all the bases covered.
A 5.0MP CMOS sensor can capture videos up to 1280x720P in size at 30fps, and still images can be captured up to 12MP in size if you can live with a lot of software interpolation. It comes with 32MB of built-in memory, so you’ll want to make sure you have an SD card (sizes up to 32GB supported) handy if you actually intend to record any video. There’s also an HDMI connection for hooking the camcorder directly to your HDTV, and USB for downloading pictures and videos to your PC. Now I’m sure the HDV-T900 isn’t the most amazing piece of video hardware to come out of China, but according to the Red Ferret Journal it will only set you back about $88.
