Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode.
Advanced image stabilization keeps footage blur-free, even when the recording circumstances or the user’s hands are shaky.

Up to 26.8mm wide-angle lens.
Whether you’re shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes, when you don’t have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, selected camcorders shoot as wide as 26.8mm1 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Exceptional image quality.
The high-bitrate XAVC S format is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.

Highlight Movie Maker.
A versatile tool to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time-saving features. Add highlight markers to key moments while recording, and let the software automatically sync your transitions to your chosen soundtrack.

BIONZ X™ image processor.
The advanced BIONZ X™ image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.

ZEISS lens.
Sharing a commitment to outstanding performance and design, Sony and Carl Zeiss co-develop lenses that combine the best possible optics with premium-quality electronics and sensor technology for Sony’s Handycam® models.

Dual Video Recording.
Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.
