It's equipped with a back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor that's ideal for low-light situations. Plus, it features a wide angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens that supports 25x optical zoom and 30x extended zoom. There's also a 2.7" Clear Photo LCD display for easy recording and instant playback.

The HDR-CX190 features Event Browse and a Highlight Playback function that creates movies with transitions and soundtracks for you automatically. With the HDR-CX190, you can use the Direct Copy feature to transfer your HD footage directly to a hard drive without even using a PC.

Full HD 1920 x 1080 Recording & 5.3 Megapixel Still Image Capture
The HDR-CX190 offers 1920 x 1080/60i high definition resolution letting you record your adventures and memories in exceptional Full HD quality. You can even use the camera's HDMI output to view your footage on a compatible HDTV in stunning clarity with incredible detail and smooth playback. The HDR-CX190 features 5.3 megapixel still image capture as well
Memory Card Slot
The camcorder features a memory card slot that supports SD / SDHC / SDXC (class 4 or higher) memory cards, as well as Memory Stick PRO Duo (Mark 2) and Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo cards
Back-Illuminated Exmor 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 CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor CMOS 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
SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode
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
25x Optical Zoom & 30x Extended Zoom
The camera's 30x extended zoom works in conjunction with 25x optical zoom to get you even closer to the action while maintaining a fair distance and high definition image quality
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens
The professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens is designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses and SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake
Clear Photo 2.7" LCD Display (230K)
The 2.7" Clear Photo LCD panel displays sharp, bright and vivid images that let you compose a shot more easily - even outdoors. It also enables you to change settings to best represent the scene
Intelligent Auto with 60 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 nine distinct scene modes with 60 different combinations possible. The nine modes are Portrait, Baby, Tripod, Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro and Low light
Event Browse for Grouping Photos & Videos Automatically
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. Plus, 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
Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pin-point the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel
Direct Copy to External HDD without a PC
Store your home movies by copying 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 Transfers & Charging
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 any separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it. Plus, charging your camcorder is faster than ever; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time
