  • 1Description

Weighing only 6.0oz, the extremely lightweight HDR-CX190E Full HD Flash Memory Camcorder from Sony takes full HD video (1920x1080) and is designed for use in Europe, and compatoible with PAL broadcasting system. The camcorder features Sony's Exmor R CMOS sensor, the same sensor that brought low light still images to the next level. The camera's intelligent auto shooting modes takes the guesswork out of shooting video by detecting ambient settings and adjusting the camera settings accordingly. Additionally, select from a host of scene modes including sports, portrait, low light, snow, beach, sunset, scenery, and night mode. Intelligent auto goes 1 step beyond traditional auto modes. Instead of choosing only 1 scene mode, the camera combines multiple scene modes for a total of 60 different combinations so you get the perfect recording every time.

The HDR-CX190E features still picture capture at 5.1 MP, even while recording video. Thanks to the camera's powerful optical image stabilization and fast frame rates, the single frames you isolate out can transform into high-quality blur-free images.

The camera is compatible with MemoryStick and SD memory cards. Transferring the data to a computer is easy thanks to the built-in USB cable. There's no need to take the memory card out of the camera - just connect the USB cable to your computer and transfer your videos and images. Additionally, you can use the USB cable to transfer files directly to an external hard drive, perfect for backing up data on the road or making room for more shooting.
