You capture the moment, we keep it steady
Imaging technology that captures more scenic quality
Aim for stunning clarity and detail in every scene with core imaging components that deliver superior picture quality under all conditions. Versatile control of multiple recording formats and cameras is great for easy sharing and ambitious post-production. Plenty of other functions help make everything you shoot a pleasure for everyone to enjoy.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot™
Our advanced image stabilization enables blur-free footage, even when the recording circumstances are shaky or bumpy.
30x optical zoom
With a wide angle lens that is ideal for capturing grand landscapes, the camera also provides 30x optical zoom and up to 60x Clear Image Zoom for versatile image options.
Up to 26.8mm wide angle lens
Whether you’re shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, selected camcorders shoot as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.
Exceptional image quality
The high-bitrate XAVC S format is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.
5.1ch surround sound microphone
Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theatre system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel’s levels.
Multi Camera Control
More shots means more interesting editing. Connected cameras can easily record footage from a variety of angles, whether mounted directly to the [product] or triggered wirelessly. Multi Camera Control makes it easy to sync shooting settings on all devices.
Highlight Movie Maker
A versatile tool to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time-saving features. Add highlight markers to key moments while recording, and let the software automatically sync your transitions to your chosen soundtrack.
Live Streaming via Ustream®
From performances to sports events, some things are best seen in real time. Share scenes as they happen with high-quality picture and sound.
Motion Shot Video
Motion Shot Video plays a sequence of superimposed images that trace recorded action in split-second intervals for you to analyse in detail on the LCD screen. During playback, you can adjust the interval or pause to capture and share a still image.
Built-in USB cable
The built-in USB cable stowed in the hand strap is very convenient for extra-quick charging and connection to a PC, so there is no need to pack a bulky extra USB cable or AC adapter. For charging without a PC, use a compact AC-USB adapter (optional).
Exmor R™ CMOS sensor
This large, cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.
BIONZ X™ image processor
The advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.
Sony G Lens
At the heart of superlative optical performance, the Sony G Lens works in perfect harmony with the Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and BIONZ X™ processor. It’s essential for realising the exquisitely detailed images that great memories are made of.
9.2MP still image capture
Sometimes you don’t need — or want — video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality 9.2-megapixel single images as easily as you do with a still image camera.
This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimises a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It provides the best results for up to 180 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference.
Lock-on autofocus (AF)
Enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal autofocus (AF) point at all times and adjusting the target frame size to match the subject’s characteristics. Thanks to advances in phase-detection AF, it’s now more accurate than ever — so lock on and shoot fast-moving targets with precision.
Clear movies, that contain twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode, can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p in progressive recording mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60/50 frames per second, and each frame is recorded as one full picture. So a still captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode looks extra-sharp.
Dual Video Recording
Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.
Dual Record mode
Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.
Manual settings for iris and shutter speed
This camcorder gives you the freedom to choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control, ideal for shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions as well as in other situations.
Because great smiles are fleeting, this feature ensures they’re never lost. Automatically capture snapshots of smiling faces, even while recording video.
Auto Wind Noise Reduction
Using an advanced sound-analysis algorithm, this feature eliminates wind noise — the biggest culprit of bad outdoor audio.
My Voice Cancelling
Reduce the intensity of sounds coming from behind the camera, whether the sounds are from talking to subjects or cheering them on.
Mic Level Control
For recording movies, you can fine-tune the microphone level to optimise quality of any sound input, from a quiet birdsong to a loud band performance. Even when the sound level increases suddenly, Auto Gain prevents the sound from degenerating.
Built-in Wi-Fi and NFC
Forget about wires and drivers. With NFC and Wi-Fi, transferring files from your camera to your mobile device is quick and simple. Just download the PlayMemories™ Mobile app to get started.
Give free reign to your imagination. Picture Effect expands movie and photo enjoyment by letting you add up to seven creative effects (Partial Colour, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, High Contrast Mono, Toy Camera, Pop Colour, Posterization) without troublesome editing on a computer.
Direct Copy from Handycam®
It's easy to back up and store image data to an external hard drive. Just connect the drive to the Handycam® that originally contains the data by plugging the USB cable into the USB port of the hard drive.
