The Makings of a Masterpiece
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when recorded in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p 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.
Optical SteadyShot™ Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode is an advanced optical image stabilization technology that corrects camera shake to capture scenes with phenomenal smoothness and stability. Image stabilization analyzes video frames and provides compensation with assistance from the new BIONZ® X image processing engine. Whether recording movies while strolling on vacation, shooting while chasing a child, or zooming in to capture faraway subjects, you can smoothly reproduce the scene with a higher level of stability.
Ready, Set, Project
Turn down the lights and turn on the high-contrast 13-lumen projector built into the LCD panel. You've just transformed your camcorder into a mobile 100" 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, laptops and tablets, you can also project YouTube™ videos, photos, full-length films, video games and more.
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.
