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.

1920x1080p Full HD Recording With 5.3MP Still Image Capture

The Sony HDR-CX190 offers 1920 x 1080p high definition resolution letting you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality. With Dual Capture you can also take 5.3MP still images while shooting HD movie

30x Extended Zoom

Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 25x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality

Back-Illuminated Exmor R CMOS Sensor For Superb Low-Light Video

Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions

2.7" Clear Photo LCD display (230K)

The 2.7" Clear Photo LCD screen displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily - even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene

When used with the Highlight Playback feature, making and sharing a highlight reel from your event is easy and fun

SteadyShot Image Stabilization With Active Mode

SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture

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 for charging or file transfer 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. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time

You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel
