FEATURES:
HD VIDEO AND HIGH QUALITY STILLS
Create high definition 1920 x 1080 60p videos and high quality 9.2MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated ExmorR® CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R®CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.


WIDE ANGLE LENS
From the authority in lens technology, the Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens provides a high quality 29.8mm wide angle so you can get everything you want in the shot.


GET CLOSER TO THE ACTION
Get amazingly close with 27x optical zoom plus 54x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.


CLEAR PHOTO LCD DISPLAY
The 2.7” (16:9) Clear Photo LCD™ (230K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.


STEADY SHOT™ IMAGE STABILIZATION
SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.


FACE DETECTION WITH VOICE ENHANCEMENT
Capture every smile, every laugh and every memory in perfect clarity via Sony's Face Detection technology with voice enhancement and noise reduction. It automatically distinguishes between children and adults, and also detects up to eight individual faces to adjust flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.

BUILT-IN USB CABLE
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.

GET CREATIVE WITH PICTURE EFFECTS
Picture Effects add a new level of expression to video and photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. There are seven different effects such as partial color to make your focal point stand out, or watercolor which looks like a painting.


DUAL RECORDING
Record HD video in the AVCHD and MP4 formats for highest quality or easy transfer and sharing. AVCHD provides premium video that can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs, and is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime. MP4 is great for those moments that you want to quickly share on your social networks or store on the cloud.


INTELLIGENT AUTO
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction. There are 60 different combinations possible: Portrait, Baby, Tripod , Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro, Low light.
