Brief Overview:

The most compact HDV capable VTR in the Sony range

The HVR-M15 is also compatible with standard size cassettes. The DigitalMaster ?cassette can provide over 4 hours recording of HDV content - the ideal choice when longer recording times are required.

The compact dimensions of the HVR-M15 means that it can be positioned either horizontally or vertically depending on individual needs, whilst its simple design makes it very easy to use.As with all HDV products, the HVR-M15 has the added benefit of 2 year Silver Support warranty - providing additional piece of mind.
