Thanks to Full HD recording, this camcorder delivers exceptional video quality every time you shoot. Recording at 60p (NTSC) / 50p (PAL), the progressive mode captures the best possible quality to make your videos sharper and smoother.
Fine Details Even In Low-light
Whether lush greens in a garden, cool blues of an ocean, or a ruby-toned party dress, accurately capture the many colours of life with the Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor. Its excellent sensitivity and back-illuminated technology ensures that your footage has every fine detail covered.
Whenever you are shooting footage on the move, Optical SteadyShot (Active Mode) compensates for a wide range of movement, ensuring that the footage you record is crisp and blur-free. This feature is especially effective for wide shots, where image stability is enhanced up to 10x compared to conventional Optical SteadyShot.
Incredible Zoom For Incredible Details
You would always appreciate the powerful zoom on your camcorder that comes with a 50x Extended Zoom* lens. It brings you as close to the action as you need to be and ensures that all your images are as clear and crisp as you remember them.
* Extended Zoom is effective while SteadyShot is standard or off.
