Sony's HDR-CX350E 32GB HD Handycam PAL Camcorder provides you with a number of features, including multiple storage options. When it comes to storage your video and still images can be saved to the 32GB built-in flash memory, Sony's Memory Stick media, or SD/SDHC memory cards. The CX350E also gives you the option to transfer files from the internal memory to removable media for transfer to your computer.

The CX350E's core back-illuminated 1/4" Exmor R CMOS sensor helps to capture vivid 1920 x 1080i video, and 7MP still images. Sony's BIONZ Image Processor works with the sensor to reduce Data Noise, provide faster processing, and also helps with data compression. In addition to all that, image processor enables Face Detection and Sony's Dynamic Range Optimizer functions. Other main components of the camcorder include a touch 2.7 display, a Wide Angle G-Lens with 12x optical zoom, and Sony's SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode.

Among the plethora of user-friendly features on the HDR-CX350E you'll find a customizable menu system called, "My Menu", and Highlight Playback which edits your footage into a short movie that's backed with music and transitions. There's also "Golf Shot" which takes a few seconds of recording and turns it into 22 still images for a "sequence shot" which can then be analyzed for any fast action movements. You'll also have Intelligent Auto, Face Detection, Smile Shutter, and 1080p playback via HDMI at your disposal, among others.
