Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens
60x Optical Zoom
2000x Digital Zoom
2.7" LCD


16GB Embedded Memory:
16GB of embedded memory can record and store up to almost 12 hours of video footage (SD LP mode).

2.7" Clear Photo™ LCD Display:
The 2.7" Clear Photo™ LCD (230K) display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270° for multiple viewing angles, as well as providing sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.

LED Video Light:
The DCR-SX63 includes a small but powerful LED video light that can assist in low light situations, allowing you to capture video that you might have missed in the past.

Dolby® Digital Stereo Recording with Built-in Zoom Mic:
The Dolby® Digital stereo recording with built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects with the camera's zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds.

Film Roll Index:
Like chapters in a book, Film Roll Index helps you easily find desired scenes in video footage. When using this feature, the camcorder previews the beginning of scenes and can create scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes).

Media Card Slot:
For convenient storage and sharing of your images and videos, the camera accepts Memory Stick Duo™ / Memory Stick PRO Duo™ / Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo™ media (sold separately) and SD/SDHC/SDXC media (Class 4).

Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens with SteadyShot™:
The DCR-SX63 features a professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses, and SteadyShot™ image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake.

Face Detection:
Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.

1/8" Advanced HAD™ CCD sensor:
A 1/8" Advanced HAD™ (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with 410K (effective) pixel resolution delivers stunning detail and clarity for exceptional video (up to 500 lines of horizontal resolution) and still image performance.

Sony® PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software:
Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort and view your video and still images on your compatible PC. In addition, multiple output options let you burn your memories to DVD (sold separately), as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular video and photo sharing sites .

60x Optical, 2000x Digital Zoom:
Ideal for sporting events, wildlife or distance shooting, 60x optical zoom brings you closer to the action, so you can capture extremely tight shots, even from far away. In addition, Digital Zoom Interpolation means that extreme digital zooming (up to 2000x) is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms.

Direct Copy to external HDD w/o PC:
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

Power On by Opening LCD Display:
Power on your camcorder by simply opening the LCD display.

USB 2.0 Interface:
A USB 2.0 interface provides an easy way to connect your camcorder to a compatible PC for fast transfer of video and still images for editing.
