When Every Detail Counts
Capture special occasions in the stunningly sharp, 24p/60p Full HD they deserve with silky-smooth Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization that keeps your memories looking their best. Share your family's special moments with the built-in projector that gives you a 200" display for an instant at-the-movies feel, or even connect an HDMI-compatible device for the ultimate show and tell. Feeling artistic? Manual control of iris, shutter and more let you express your personal style.
The Makings of a Masterpiece
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when recorded in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080 24p/60p Full HD video. And now thanks to Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, you can capture every minute of birthday parties, campfire sing-alongs, or any other situation where lighting is less than perfect in vivid clarity and lifelike detail. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? You can shoot 9.2MP still images and video at the same time so you won't miss an ounce of the action.
Breakthrough Anti-Shake Technology
Blurry footage is a sure way to ruin any scene. Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for a greater degree of camera shake significantly reducing blur and delivering stunningly smooth video. By moving the entire optical block at once, this revolutionary technology maintains the integrity of the optical path for reduced levels of distortion and vignetting, plus noticeably smoother videos with significantly less blur.
Ready, Set, Project
Turn down the lights and turn on the high-contrast 50-lumen projector built into the LCD panel. You've just transformed your camcorder into a mobile 200" movie theater by projecting onto a wall or virtually any flat surface. It's great for sharing footage on the fly, but since it works with HDMI-compatible smartphones, video game consoles, laptops and tablets, you can also project YouTube videos, photos, full-length films, video games and more. Can't find a perfectly flat space? Your image will still look sharp thanks to built-in Auto Keystone Adjustment that corrects the dimensions of the projection when you cannot situate it straight onto a surface.
Get the most out of your camcorder with advanced capture and control features often considered the domain of professional cameras. A convenient assignable dial gives you manual control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris and shutter speed.
Wireless Control, Transfer, and Backup
Turn your mobile phone, tablet or other compatible device into a remote control and viewing system via built-in Wi-Fi/NFC1. With a simple touch you can transfer your files for instant sharing, backup your data on your PC and even enjoy your videos and photos on a TV without wires, cables or hassles.
Fit more fun into every shot thanks to the pinnacle of Sony lens technology: the professional-quality G lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, the 26.8mm focal length in Photo and Video Modes offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide-angle shooting.
