Relive Every Experience in Stunning Lifelike Clarity
It's handy, lightweight and comes with the state-of-the-art technologies such as Sony's very own "Exmor R" CMOS Sensor that captures every detail, even in challenging low-light situations. With the ability to record unforgettable experience in Full High Definition, you can now relive and experience every journey again in stunning lifelike clarity.
Beautiful images—even in low light
For low-light environments, the back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor delivers stunning performance and increases sensitivity by 2x to reduce noise.
Natural and vibrant image
BIONZ Image Processing Engine drastically lowers noise level and achieves high accuracy in auto-focusing, exposure auto-correction and auto white balancing; creating a more natural and vibrant image in different shooting environments.
Fine details and high colour fidelity
The "G" Lens is able to produce fine details and high colour fidelity on your videos with unparalleled precision and clarity.
Preserve every moment at 1920 x 1080i Full HD video resolution with 6 times the detail of SD (Standard Definition) video. A single glance is all you need to see the remarkable difference achieved by Sony's new "Exmor R " CMOS Sensor. You can also shoot still images at a vibrant 12 megapixels to make every detail come to life.
Easily Fit More Into Your Movie
Filming in wide angle makes a world of difference. You can easily fit more into your movie and capture all the action in Full High Definition detail. People will not be cut off from the party shot, or find you have no room to step back to film all the action. Film the entire family gathering or beautiful panoramic scenery, all from a compact video camera body.
Optical Steadyshot with Active Mode
You can now be sure of smooth movie footages as the new Optical Steadyshot (Active Mode) has a camera shake correction angle that's 10x steadier than conventional Steadyshot. This effectively allows to capture clear and steady footage while walking, even when zooming in on the action at the same time.
Intuitive Wide-angle View Xtra Fine LCD Display
The Xtra Fine LCD offers offers a class leading 921k dot high resolution LCD panel that shows incredible amount of details during shooting and playback. Featuring TruBlack technology used in flagship S-Frame digital photo frames, unwanted reflection are greatly reduced, and black is faithfully reproduced as deep black, resulting in high contrast images that make viewing a true pleasure.
The wide-angle view LCD allows you to view your recording with ease. On top of that, its new slim-frame design and the intuitive touch panel LCD user interface work perfectly together to give you easier access to your menu buttons.
Quick AF - Focus Twice as Fast
A new and improved autofocus (AF) system, Quick AF, allows you to focus twice as fast as previous models. Amazingly, this is possible whether in bright daylight or in dimly lit environments. Thanks to the much improved AF algorithm in Quick AF, you can be assured of fast, accurate, and consistent focus lock even when shooting night scenes!
Record Any Scene Perfectly With Sony's Intelligent Auto (iAuto)
Unlike simple auto mode, iAUTO mode does the thinking for you. It recognises your surroundings and automatically adjusts settings for the best filming results. iAUTO selects from 90 possible settings then uses clever technologies to optimise for faces, smiles, low-light levels, different scenes (beach, snow, sports, etc.) or anti-shake adjustment.
Map your memories with built-in GPS capabilities
Built-in GPS capabilities and pre-installed data-rich maps let you record where movies and still images were taken. Simply slide the GPS switch to “ON” to record position information with your movies and still images.
The Map Index function further enhances your pleasure by displaying markers on the map to show where your movies and still images were shot. So you can search for desired content on the map and play it back by simply touching a thumbnail on the screen.
