Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 30p/ 60p up to 50Mbps in XAVC S3 and high quality 9.2MP still images. XAVC S (3) format uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor.
26.8mm ZEISS Lens w/30x Optical/60x Clear Image Zoom
Not only is this 26.8mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Tessar lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but also allows you to get amazingly close with 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in un-sharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.
2.7 inch Clear Photo Plus LCD display
The 2.7 inch (16:9) Clear Photo LCD (230K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily - even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ 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.

Get creative w/ 7 picture effects for video and still photos
Picture Effects add a new level of expression to video and photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. There are seven different effects such as partial color to make your focal point stand out, or watercolor which looks like a painting.
Add a different point of view by including other camera angles to your movies. The camcorder connects to compatible cameras (5)- like an Action Cam - via Wi-Fi and uses the camcorder’s LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras.
