The Sony HDR-CX560V Camcorder is a 64GB internal flash memory, full 1080/60p HD cam designed to take your recording beyond the norm. On top of the 26 hours of HD storage, the CX560 provides you with a built-in GPS receiver, allowing for location based archiving of your footage and geo-tracking. Other highlights include Sony's Cinematone presets and 24p recording that give your video a film-like look and feel.
When it comes to the core features of any camcorder, the CX560V has an impressive line-up. There's the Wide Angle G lens, a 3.0" touch panel LCD with TruBlack technology for higher contrast, and Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. In addition, 14x Extended zoom helps you get closer to the action while maintaining the integrity of the image.
Sony also gave the CX560 some high-class audio features. The built-in 5.1 channel surround sound microphone, for instance, helps capture all encompassing sound without an external mic. However, should you want to use an external mic the camera has both a stereo mini microphone and headphone connection. Other audio features include wind noise reduction and Clear Phase stereo speakers.
The CX560 is also equipped with a number of shooting controls that are designed to make your recording experience an easier one. While the camera features a number of ways to make your video your own, when you want to stop futzing with the camera settings and simply record, features like Intelligent Auto let you do just that.
