  • Full HD 60p Camcorder
  • 30x Optical Zoom
  • Exmor R CMOS Sensor
  • 2.7" Clear Photo LCD
  • Soft Compact Carrying Case
  • 8 GB microSDHC Memory Card
  • SteadyShot Image Stabilization w/Active mode
  • 26.8mm Wide-angle Carl Zeiss Lens
  • Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode:
  • Advanced image stabilization keeps footage blur-free, even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky
  • Up to 26.8mm wide-angle lens:
  • Whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back
  • Even without a wide conversion lens, selected camcorders shoot as wide as 26.8mm1 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode
  • Exceptional image quality:
  • The high-bitrate XAVC S format is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level
  • Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes
  • Highlight Movie Maker:
  • A versatile tool to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time-saving features
  • Add highlight markers to key moments while recording, and let the software automatically sync your transitions to your chosen soundtrack
  • Motion Shot Video:
  • Motion Shot Video plays a sequence of superimposed images that trace recorded action in split-second intervals for you to analyse in detail
  • During playback, you can adjust the interval, or pause to capture and share a still image
  • Built-in USB cable:
  • The built-in USB cable stowed in the hand strap is very convenient for extra-quick charging and connection to a PC, so there is no need to pack a bulky extra USB cable or AC adapter
  • For charging without a PC, use a compact AC-USB adapter (optional)
  • Exmor R CMOS sensor:
  • This large, cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing
  • BIONZ X image processor:
  • The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities
  • ZEISS lens:
  • Sharing a commitment to outstanding performance and design, Sony and Carl Zeiss co-develop lenses that combine the best possible optics with premium-quality electronics and sensor technology for Sony's Handycam models
  • 9.2MP still image capture:
  • Sometimes you don't need - or want - video
  • Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality 9.2-megapixel single images as easily as you do with a still image camera
  • Progressive Recording:
  • Clear movies, that contain twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode, can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p in progressive recording mode
  • The images are as smooth as those shot at 60/50 frames per second, and each frame is recorded as one full picture
  • So a still captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode looks extra-sharp
  • Dual Video Recording:
  • Record two movies at the same time - one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format
  • That way you've got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing
  • Dual Record mode:
  • Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways
  • Face Detection:
  • This automatically optimizes focus, exposure, and colour for best results
  • Select someone to be prioritized simply by touching their face on the LCD display, which is useful for selecting a key person when shooting at a crowded event
  • Even if the subject leaves the frame, they will be remembered and prioritized upon re-entering the scene
  • Intelligent Auto:
  • This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimizes a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake)
  • It provides the best results for up to 1805 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes
  • Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference
  • Smile Shutter:
  • Because great smiles are fleeting, this feature ensures they're never lost
  • Automatically capture snapshots of smiling faces, even while recording video
  • Event Browse:
  • For easy browsing and playback, this Handycam plays back GUI group videos and still images that have been recorded as separate events
  • You can choose from different display schemes from event view or index view as needed, for better organisation, searching, viewing, and sharing of your personal content
  • Picture Effect:
  • Give free reign to your imagination. Picture Effect expands movie and photo enjoyment by letting you add up to seven creative effects (Partial Color, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, High Contrast Mono, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization) without troublesome editing on a computer
  • Manual settings for iris and shutter speed:
  • This camcorder gives you freedom to choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control when shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions, as well as in other situations
  • Dual memory card compatibility:
  • This Handycam has slots for Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC cards, so you can conveniently record to whichever one is more readily available
  • X type battery operation:
  • Use an extra-light, extra-compact X type battery to minimize the overall size and weight of this Handycam in operation
  • PlayMemories Home:
  • With PlayMemories Home software installed on a computer, it's easy to import footage from a Handycam camcorder to view, edit, print, share via the web, burn files on to a disc, and even create a multi-view movie with a simultaneous split-screen view of up to four selected clips
