You must complete all required fields.
  • High Definition Camcorder
  • 30x Optical Zoom
  • 1/5.8" Exmor R CMOS Sensor
  • 3.0" Clear Photo LCD
  • Wi-Fi
  • Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode:
  • This image stabilization steadies footage being recorded when shooting conditions or the user's hands are shaky. 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while jogging lightly.
  • Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments:
  • Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimizing lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.
  • Up to 1.05 in wide-angle lens:
  • Whether you?re shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 1.06 inches1 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.
  • Time-lapse Capture:
  • You can capture still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie.
  • 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 camcorder automatically sync movie transitions to your chosen soundtrack.
  • 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.
  • One-touch remote and One-touch sharing:
  • One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and One-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.
  • Live Streaming via USTREAM:
  • From performances to sports events, some things are best seen in real time. Share scenes as they happen with high-quality picture and sound.
  • 5.1ch surround sound microphone:
  • Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theater system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel?s levels.
  • My Voice Canceling:
  • Reduce the intensity of the voice of the user shooting from close behind the camera, whether the user is from talking to subjects or cheering them on.
  • 30x optical zoom:
  • With a wide-angle lens that is ideal for capturing grand landscapes, the camera also provides 30x optical zoom and up to 60x Clear Image Zoom for versatile image options.
  • 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.
  • Lock-on autofocus (AF):
  • Enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal AF point at all times, and adjusting the target frame size to match your subject's characteristics. Just touch the subject on LCD to lock on fast-moving targets precisely for shooting.
  • Face Detection:
  • This automatically optimizes focus, exposure, and color 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.
  • Smile Shutter:
  • Because great smiles are fleeting, this feature ensures they're never lost. Automatically capture snapshots of smiling faces, even while recording video.
  • Dual Rec:
  • Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.
  • 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 180 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference.
  • 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.
  • Motion Shot Video:
  • Motion Shot Video plays a sequence of superimposed images that trace recorded action in split-second intervals for you to analyze in detail. During playback, you can adjust the interval, or pause to capture and share a still image.
  • 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.
  • 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 ZEISS co-develop lenses that combine the best possible optics with premium-quality electronics and sensor technology for Sony's Handycam models.
  • 9.2 MP 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.
  • Auto Wind Noise Reduction:
  • Using an advanced sound-analysis algorithm, this feature eliminates wind noise - the biggest culprit of bad outdoor audio.
  • Mic Level Control:
  • For recording movies, you can fine-tune the microphone level to optimize quality of any sound input, from a quiet birdsong to a loud band performance. Even when the sound level increases suddenly, Auto Gain prevents the sound from degenerating.
  • 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 (NTSC/PAL) 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.
  • Direct Copy from Handycam:
  • It's easy to back up and store image data to an external hard drive. Just connect the drive to the Handycam that originally contains the data by plugging the USB cable into the USB port of the hard drive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome action camera I got this camera for Christmas in 2017 and so far it has been awesome! I love the cameras! I have gotten some amazing films and and great pictures! I went on a cruise Andy me and my friends vloged and it had great focus and zoom! The battery was even better than I thought it was going to be! This camera has helped see what I am and am not doing right when training dog agility and hopefully it will do good with dog dock diving! I took it on a river trip and it did pretty good! Just don't get it to close to water. I am taking it turkey hunting this weekend and currently I am looking for a remote for it. Hopefully it last long because I love it! It's a great camera for the price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great find, small and convenient the pictures are very clear and it's hard to imagine such a nice picture came from such a small camera.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought for livestreaming I bought this to replace another older camera for live streaming church services. I haven't had it long enough to comment on the live streaming quality. The camera seems to work fairly well as far as the actual video and zooming. I am concerned about the quality of the actual camera body. I seems too light and flimsy for any rough handling. There are little doors and covers that I can see will be knocked off very easily. And the monitor seems like it could get knocked off easily. Plastic is not my favorite material, which this is. Also, I found the included operating guide quite hard to read because it is tiny black print on gray newsprint paper. If you try to read it in any subdued light, it is nearly impossible. The price was reasonable but it may be because it is plastic.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality picture This is my 8th or 9th Sony Handycam over the last 20 years. I have loved all of them until now. The picture quality is very poor. After switching to Highest Quality a tree shows no leaves, just a blur of color. The LCD monitor is so dark that even after increasing the brightness that I cannot tell what I am focusing on. While zooming the picture is out of focus until the zoom stops. I am very disappointed.
