Experience incredible imaging performance, with up to 40 hours Full HD recording on 96GB internal memory and more on optional memory card. With advanced optical technologies and user features to capture beautiful, detail-packed video and stills with full creative control.

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

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.

Walk. Zoom. Steady: Even more stable pictures
Wobbly pictures are a common problem when you’re shooting without a tripod. New Optical SteadyShot Active Mode delivers best-ever ‘3-way’ camera shake correction at all zoom settings, even when you’re walking along.

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.

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.
