    Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 24p/60p and high quality 8.9MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor®R 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.

    The built-in 8GB1 embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 3 hours 10 minutes of high definition video footage (HD LP mode).

    SteadyShot™ image stabilization w/ 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.

    32x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action. Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 27x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

    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.

    The professional-quality 29.8mm Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens is 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.

    Select between HD video in the AVCHD or MP4 format for highest quality or easy transfer and sharing. AVCHD provides premium video.
