The Sony HDR-CX160 HD Flash Memory Camcorder puts full 1920 x 1080p high def recording and 16GB of internal memory right in the palm of your hand. While the CX160 might be a mid-range camcorder, as far as budgets are concerned, it provides numerous features and functions, not to mention the stunning detail of progressive high definition. Your memories will look beautiful on your HDTV or HD monitor.

Helping the CX160 take those gorgeous HD videos would be the camera's 'Exmor R' CMOS sensor, otherwise known as the heart of the camera. Back-illuminated, this sensor has superb low light capabilities for capturing readable images even in dimly lit situations. In addition to the sensor, features like the Sony Wide Angle G lens, a 3.0" touch screen LCD, Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, and 42x Extended zoom also play key roles in preserving the memorable moments of your life.

In addition to these core tools, the CX160 also comes equipped with a number of user-friendly shooting controls. These controls help take the guesswork out of filming, allowing you to focus on the moment and not futzing with the camera's settings. Such functions include Intelligent Auto, Golf Shot, and Tracking focus, just to name a few. Of course when you're done shooting, the work isn't over just yet. Sony provides editing software with the CX160 for making the most of your videos.
