Excellent low light performance
Many compact camcorders struggle in low light, producing grainy images. Super sensitive Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor reduces image noise for clearer images. In conjunction with the powerful BIONZ processor you’ll get great results in low light, idea for corporate and event videography where light conditions cannot necessarily be controlled.
Outstanding wide angle shooting.
Shooting in tight situations needs the flexibility of a wide angle lens. The high quality G Lens by Sony now features enhanced wide angle performance of 29.8mm (35mm equivalent), meaning an additional wide angle adaptor may not be necessary, reducing the weight of the camcorder.
Steady shooting without additional grip equipment
Documentary and video diary productions are often shot hand-held by non-craft camera operators. New Optical SteadyShot Active Mode delivers best-ever ‘3-way’ camera shake correction at all zoom settings, even when you’re walking along. In wide angle position, you’ll enjoy up to ten times improved anti-shake performance ideal for delivering watchable content in different shooting conditions.
