The smarter, the simpler
For family fun and a whole lot more
Beyond high technology, Handycam® performance relies on closer attention to human factors. Such as the flexibility to create, shape, share, and discover better ways for images to really move you. Plus, the focus on more carefree yet functional approaches to get to the heart of a subject. The integrity of Sony’s know-how is dedicated to more fun and exciting movie-making, from start to finish. So this is more than just a new Handycam®, it’s a handier way of providing as much happiness as you can handle — for this generation and those lucky ones to come.
For steadier images shot on the move
Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode
Shoot steady movie images even while walking or zooming. Advanced image stabilisation compensates for camera shake up to 13x1 more effectively compared to standard mode.
See life in a new light
At the intersection of visionary technology and design, Handycam® image quality reigns supreme. A ZEISS lens, Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor and BIONZ X™ image processing engine are the essence of picture performance. Zoom coverage as wide as 26.8mm is expansive, and XAVC S 50Mbps high-bitrate recording captures scenes of remarkable dynamism in detail.
Up to 26.8mm wide angle lens
Frame more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes where you can't step back.
Optical Zoom and Clear Image Zoom
Images look very sharp and less degraded even beyond optical zoom range.
Premium recording that’s ready for anything
For higher image qualities and capture capacity
Based on the professional XAVC HD format, the XAVC S format for consumer use supports high-bitrate for recording high-resolution, action-filled HD movies.
Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor
Twice the light sensitivity of a conventional sensor for outstanding low-light image capture.
BIONZ X™ image processing engine
Quickly transforms data from the sensor into richly textured high-resolution movies and photos.
Working with the Exmor R™ sensor and BIONZ X™ processor, the ZEISS lens delivers superior optical performance.
