Additional features include a 3.0" touch-screen Clear Photo LCD Plus display (230K) for framing and reviewing your footage. There's also built-in LED video light which is perfect for low light situations.


The built-in 16GB embedded Flash Memory can record up to 12 hours of footage (LP mode)
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 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
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
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
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 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 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
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (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
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
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
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from seven distinct scene modes (36 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Macro, Portrait, Tripod
The DCR-SX85 features an LED light that can assist in low-light situations giving you more flexibility when capturing your video
Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort and view your video and still images on your compatible PC
