  • Super LoLux

    Low light performance is one of the key factors for quality video. Everio's Super LoLux ensures superior sensitivity to low light. With a Back-illuminated CMOS sensor (on select models), you can capture clear images with precise colors even in low light. No worry while indoors or in dark situations

  • Intelligent Auto

    Wherever you point the camera, it instantaneously analyzes faces, brightness, color and distance, to automatically select the best settings for the scene. Brightness, sharpness, chroma and gamma values, and more, are all continuously optimized. Get the best possible shot, anytime!

  • HD/SD Dual Format Recording

    Record in AVCHD Full HD if you want to watch the results on an HDTV or burn 1920 x 1080 resolution videos to a Blu-ray disc or DVD. In addition you can record in Standard Definition to edit 720 x 480 resolution videos for longer recording times, burn to standard DVD and share with people who haven't upgraded to HDTV yet. Remember HD for higher quality recordings or SD for broad compatibility and longer recording time the choice is yours

  • Advanced Image Stabilizer

    Camera-shake compensation is another important feature of a video camera. The Advanced Image Stabilizer (A.I.S.) expands the effective area at wide angle, delivering powerful compensation for camera shake. Now, you can enjoy stable results even if you're trotting alongside your subject

  • Face Sub-Window

    Touch on a face on the LCD screen, and the face is automatically shown enlarged in a corner of the screen. So you can record both a group shot and a close-up of someone at the same time!

  • Time-Lapse REC

    Time-Lapse REC records one frame at a time at set intervals (1 sec - 80 sec). So you can watch movement that's hours long in just a few seconds when played back. It's great when you want to observe an event that takes place over a long period of time or to record unique-looking scenes in a creative way

  • Auto REC

    When a subject enters the detecting area and the luminance changes, recording starts automatically. Recording continues as long as there is movement within the area and automatically stops after 5 seconds of no movement. You can use it like a surveillance camera or to observe something.

  • Smile Meter

    Just say cheese! The Smile Meter keeps an eye on how much your subjects are smiling, giving you a % display. With Smile Shot, the camera automatically takes a picture (in video mode) every time the smile % reaches a certain level. It's a great way to take group shots filled with smiling faces

  • 2-Way Grip Belt

    The newly designed belt works both ways - as a standard grip belt or a convenient wrist strap. You can choose which way, to best match your style of shooting or carrying at any time
