Detailed item info

Expanded Product Features
  • Better images in low light
    Shooting in low light can be a challenge for your camcorder: it often results in disappointing, grainy images spoiled by noise. Offering improved sensitivity compared with previous models, a CCD sensor captures light more efficiently for cleaner, better-looking low-light images.
  • Get closer than you've ever been before
    It's like packing a telescope with your camcorder. This incredible 60x zoom range makes sure that distant subjects fill the frame. You've never seen such amazing, detail-packed close-ups.
  • Natural looking faces every time
    Faces can look dark and underexposed in bright, backlit situations like a sun-drenched beach. And if you're shooting indoors there's a risk your subject's skin tone can look unnaturally colored. The camcorder fine-tunes focus, exposure and skin tone for more natural looking faces.
  • Brighten up your subject
    Don't get left in the dark. A video light illuminates your subject for great results when you're shooting in low light at parties, indoors or with night-time scenes.

16GB embedded memory:
The built-in 16GB embedded Flash Memory can record up to 12 hours of footage (LP mode).

3.0” Clear Photo LCD Plus™ display (230K)
The 3.0” Clear Photo LCD Plus™ display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides 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.

Dolby® Digital stereo recording with Built-in Zoom Mic
The 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.

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 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.

Auto Lens Cover
The automatic lens cover protects the Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens from scratches during transport or while not in use by closing the lens cover automatically when the camera is shut off.

70x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action
Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 60x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining image quality.

SteadyShot® image stabilization with Active Mode
Steadyshot® image stabilization with Active Mode allows for a greater degree of image stabilization giving you more stable video even when on the move or in low light circumstances.

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.

Direct Copy to external HDD without PC
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive10 (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your TV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

Film Roll / Face Index
With Film Roll Index, the camcorder previews the beginning of scenes and creates scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes). Face Index indexes your video footage according to the faces detected in each scene. When it’s time to play back video, simply search for what you want by selecting from among the detected faces displayed in the index.

Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens
The 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.
