Features

1920x1080 Full HD 24p/60p w/9.2MP Exmor R® CMOS Sensor

Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 24p/60p and high quality 9.2MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R® 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.
Balanced Optical SteadyShot<sup>™</sup> image stabilization

Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization

On standard Optical SteadyShot camcorders a single "shift lens" is moved in the optical block to offset camera shake. Balanced Optical SteadyShot w/ Active Mode moves the entire optical block at once, maintaining the integrity of the optical path and reducing shake. It also reduces vignetting (light falloff towards the edge of a scene) and lowers distortion in videos and still photos.
