Superlative Full HD imaging with latest technology and smart features

The finest ever Full HD images

Experience incredible imaging performance, with up to 101 hours Full HD recording on 240GB built-in HDD and more on optional memory card. With advanced optical technologies and advanced user features to capture beautiful, detail-packed video and stills.


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 low light, dim interiors or at dusk.

Pack more into every scene

Now you can make sure nobody’s left out of the picture at parties, birthdays and other special occasions. The high quality G Lens by Sony inside Handycam® now features enhanced wide angle performance, capturing up to 2x greater image area than previous models.


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. In wide angle position, you’ll enjoy up to ten times improved anti-shake performance.


Total control

Make sure your videos really stand out from the crowd. There's a manual settings dial for extra creative control, large XtraFine LCD and view finder to frame shots precisely, and an external mic input for even better-sounding audio.

Best-ever Full HD picture quality

More bits in every frame means better-looking pictures. For quality-critical productions, new FX Mode captures detail-packed 1920x1080/50i video at a full 24Mbps – the highest bit-rate specified by the AVCHD
