50Mbps XAVC S™3 1920x1080 at 60P, AVCHD® and MP4 codecs
Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 24p/60p up to 50Mbps in XAVC S™3 and high quality 9.2MP still images. XAVC S3 format uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor.

26.8mm ZEISS® Lens w/30x Optical/60x Clear Image Zoom
Not only is this 26.8mm wide-angle ZEISS® Vario-Tessar lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but also allows you to get amazingly close with 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in un-sharp 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.

2.7” Clear Photo Plus™ 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.

Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization w/Active mode
Optical 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.

Automatically creates highlight video in MP4 from multiple clips
Highlight Movie Maker produces a short highlight movie clip to share and enjoy instantly. Using an advanced algorithm, based on the motion gyro, Highlight Movie Maker selects the best scenes from your videos and automatically creates a MP4 highlight video from multiple clips.

Connect, control, backup and share wirelessly with NFC/Wi-Fi®
Easily connect to an Android o iOS smartphone or tablet with Wi-Fi® and the PlayMemories™ Mobile app to control the camcorder (Rec, photo, zoom) or instantly transfer and share movies and photos via your mobile device. NFC2 (Near Filed Communication) makes it even easier to connect to NFC2 compatible mobile devices with one touch.

Broadcast LIVE from your camcorder using Ustream™ live-streaming
Share the adventure as it happens via Ustream™ live streaming.. Now your circle of friends and family can share the excitement in real time by simply logging in to Ustream™ from anywhere. You can also link your favorite social accounts with the streaming to notify your friends when you start streaming video.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge
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.

Face Detection with voice enhancement and noise reduction
Sony’s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.

Get creative w/ 7 picture effects for video and still photos
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.

Multi-camera control
Add a different point of view by including other camera angles to your movies. The camcorder connects to compatible cameras5 - like an Action Cam - via Wi-Fi® and uses the camcorder’s LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras. Use PlayMemories™ Home6 to easily edit a muli-view movie for a great video experience.
