For family fun and a whole lot more
Beyond high technology, Handycam® performance relies on close attention to human factors. Such as the flexibility to create, shape, share, and discover better ways for images to really move you. Plus, it focuses on carefree yet functional approaches to get to the heart of a subject. Sony’s know-how is dedicated to more fun and exciting moviemaking, from start to finish. It's more than a new Handycam®, it’s a handier way to provide as much happiness as you can handle – for this generation and the lucky ones to come.
For steadier images shot on the move
Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode
Shoot steady movie images even while walking or zooming. Advanced image stabilization compensates for camera shake up to 13x2 more effectively compared to standard mode.
See life in a new light
Where visionary technology and design meet, Handycam® image quality reigns supreme. A ZEISS lens, an Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor and a BIONZ X™ image processing engine provide the essence of picture performance. Expansive zoom coverage as wide as 26.8 mm, and XAVC S 50 Mbps high-bitrate recording that captures scenes of remarkably dynamic detail.
Up to 26.8 mm wide-angle lens
Frame more landscape and indoor scenes when you can't step back.
Optical Zoom and Clear Image Zoom
Images look very sharp and less degraded even beyond the optical zoom range.
Premium recording that’s ready for anything
For higher image quality and capture capacity
Based on the professional XAVC HD format, the XAVC S format for consumer use supports high bitrates for recording high-resolution, action-filled HD movies.
Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor
Twice the light sensitivity of conventional sensors for outstanding low-light image capture.
More functional for more fun
Extending the joy of shooting, editing, and sharing
BIONZ X™ image processing engine
Quickly transforms data from the sensor into richly textured high-resolution movies and photos.
Working with the Exmor R™ sensor and BIONZ X™ processor, the ZEISS lens delivers superior optical performance.
Highlight Movie Maker
Easily get and share highlight movies with transition effects and music.
Motion Shot Video
Superimpose image sequences to trace split-seconds of recorded action.
Built-in cable for PC connection and quick charging
The USB cable stowed in the hand strap eliminates the need to pack a bulky extra USB cable or AC adapter. For charging without a PC, use a compact AC-USB adapter (optional).
