Let everyone in the room enjoy your special memories. Inside this compact, easy to use Full HD camcorder there's a projector that beams your videos onto any nearby surface. It's the smart, fun new way for everyone to share the action.

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.

Project your image anywhere
Sometimes you want everyone to see your video memories, but there's no TV in the room to hook up with. Now Handycam lets you project crisp, detailed video clips directly onto any nearby flat surface - from walls and ceilings to a friend's t-shirt.

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.

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.

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.
