The Sony HDR-CX130E Full HD Flash Memory PAL Camcorder puts full 1920 x 1080p high-definition recording at your fingertips, complete with a range of useful features and functions. Storing everything you record onto handy SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards or Sony's proprietary Memory Stick media, the camera demonstrates a remarkable ability to capture brilliant HD video and stills, even in low light.

A wide angle Sony G lens (with 42x extended zoom) and sensitive 'Exmor R' CMOS sensor make two important contributions to the quality of the 50p and 50i footage. At the same time, a 3.0" touch screen LCD supplies a generous platform on which to compose and review your shots. It also rotates up to 270°, allowing for shooting from difficult angles.

A slew of other features is available to help capture your memories. Shooting controls such as Intelligent Auto take the guesswork out of recording by automatically setting the camera to the right combination of scene modes. Features like Tracking Focus allow you to set the camera to focus on a selected subject. And Golf Shot mode captures a few seconds of motion in up to 22 still images, allowing for a detailed breakdown of the event.

Of course when the shooting's over, the work isn't quite done--which is why Sony provides editing software with the CX130E for making the most of your videos. And when your masterpiece has been polished, the software will help you upload it to the Web for sharing on sites like Facebook and YouTube.

1920 x 1080 Full HD 50p Recording
1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional Sony full high definition quality. Capable of 1080/50p recording and playback via HDMI and compatible HDTV, the camera provides stunning clarity and incredibly detailed playback of your memories.
Wide Angle G Lens to Capture Everything You Want
Experience the pinnacle of Sony lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, the 29.8mm focal offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting.
42x Extended Zoom
Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 30x 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" 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.
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode
Optical 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.
3.0" Touch Screen Clear Photo LCD Plus Display
The 3.0" Clear Photo LCD Plus display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.
Tracking Focus Follows Selected Subjected
Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object.
Event Browse Groups Photos/Videos
Event Browse conveniently groups your images and videos together for easier viewing. The date range that Event Browse groups your pictures and videos is easily adjusted to suit your needs. When used with the Highlight Playback feature, making and sharing a highlight reel from your event is easy and fun.
Highlight Playback Creates Movies with Transitions for You
Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel.
Wind Noise Reduction for Clear Voice Recording
Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience.
Intelligent Auto - 90 Different Scene Combinations Possible
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes (90 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod.
Direct Copy to External HDD without PC
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder's handy playback features.
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.
Golf Shot
Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite "sequence shot" image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.
