Superb Full HD images and sound

Best Full HD pictures

Move up to the smoothest, most detailed video images you've ever seen from a camcorder. 1920x1080/50p mode records at a very high frame rate in progressive mode, capturing 50 Full HD frames every second for extra-clear results.

Walk. Zoom. Steady: Even more stable pictures

Wobbly pictures are a common problem when you’re shooting without a tripod. Optical SteadyShot Active Mode delivers ‘3-way’ camera shake correction at all zoom settings, even when you’re walking along.

Sounds amazing

Don't your videos deserve a better soundtrack? The precision microphone array captures 5.1-ch surround sound with greater sensitivity and reduced wind noise. Stereo speakers and S-Master technology assure clear sound during playback on your camcorder.

Pack more into every scene

Make sure nobody’s left out of the picture at parties, birthdays and other special occasions. The high quality G Lens by Sony features enhanced wide angle performance, capturing a bigger image area without you having to stand back.

Low light, no problem

Many camcorders struggle in low light, producing grainy, fuzzy images. Super sensitive Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor reduces image noise for clearer images. In conjunction with the powerful BIONZ processor you’ll get great results in dim interiors or at dusk.
