Note:
Please Note: The camera does not support HDMI output to an external monitor while recording.
28mm Wide-Angle Lens
Featuring a 28mm (35mm equivalent) focal length at the wide end, the lens allows you to fit more people and more of the background into the frame when working in tight spaces. And because it fits in your subjects even when you shoot from up close, you can get the camcorder's microphone closer to the action for improved audio pick up.
50x Optical Zoom / 90x Intelligent Zoom
Get closer to the action with the camcorder's large 50x optical zoom range. When you need to get even closer, you can push in up to 90x using the intelligent zoom function. Intelligent zoom combines digital zoom, sharpening, and advanced image up-scaling technology to deliver crisper images.
5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+
Stabilized on 5 axes (pan, tilt, and roll axes, plus horizontal and vertical directions), the HYBRID O.I.S+ suppresses blurring and jitters in your videos when not using a tripod or other stabilizer.
Level Shot
Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images. It can be adjusted to three different levels-OFF, Normal or Strong-depending on shooting conditions.
Backside Illuminated Sensor
A backside illuminated sensor is incorporated in the camcorder, letting you shoot in lower light situations with reduced image noise.
Creative Control Effects
Add effects to your video for further enhancing your creativity. Built-in Creative Control modes include Miniature Effect, 8mm Movie, Silent Movie, and Time Lapse Recording.
