Key Features

Balanced Optical SteadyShot - 5-axis Intelligent Active mode

Balanced Optical SteadyShot - 5-axis Intelligent Active mode

Our advanced image stabilisation suppresses camera shake to stabilise a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range, even under unsteady conditions. 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running.

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments

Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimising lens motion, predicting suitable AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

Up to 26.8mm wide-angle lens

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 and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Time-lapse Capture

Time-lapse Capture

You can capture still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie.

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.

Progressive Recording

Progressive Recording

Clear movies, that contain twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode, can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p (NTSC/PAL) in progressive recording mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60p/50p (NTSC/PAL) 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.

Direct Copy from Handycam

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.
