Digital Handycam® Camcorder
Offers up to 530 lines of horizontal resolution, 3X color bandwidth (vs. VHS) and significantly higher S/N ratio, to provide stunning video performance.
|Digital Still Memory Mode with Memory Stick® Media|
Capture digital still images at 640 x 480 resolution, directly onto Memory Stick® media for easy transfer to PC’s for emailing, printing, or sharing with other compatible Memory Stick® devices.
|2.5" Precision Hybrid SwivelScreen™ LCD Display1 (211K Pixels)|
Provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 211K pixel LCD display makes images sharp and detailed during playback or when monitoring recording. The Hybrid Reflective- Transmissive LCD Screen provides accurate viewing in sunlight or bright light, virtually eliminating the “wash-out" common with traditional LCD Screens.
|Manual Exposure Dial|
Create your own special look by controlling the camera’s exposure amount manually, allowing in less or more light for creative control.

|i.LINK®2 DV Interface (IEEE1394)|
A high speed bi-directional digital video/audio communication between two devices equipped with an IEEE1394 interface, including camcorders, digital VCRs, and PCs.
|•||3–CCD Imaging System|
Each 1/3" CCD has 380,000 pixels for brilliant digital picture-quality.
|•||530 Lines of Horizontal Video Resolution|
Advanced HAD™ Megapixel CCD technology, combined with high-quality optics provide outstanding video performance with up to 530 horizontal lines of resolution.
|•||Advanced HAD™ CCD Technology|
Enhanced CCD design allows more light to reach the imager which reduces video noise to improve signal-to-noise ratio by up to 6db (2x better than a standard CCD). Particularly effective when shooting in dark situations.
|•||12X Optical/48X Digital Zoom|
The optical zoom helps to bring the action up close from far away. In addition, the digital zoom interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms.
|•||Aspherical Ground Glass 58mm Lens|
Larger diameter allows more light to strike the Advanced HAD™ CCD imagers for greater detail and clarity, while the aspherical lens reduces optical distortion, and provide better corner-to-corner focus.
|•||Manual Zoom Ring|
Allows user operated manual zoom speed for more flexibility and control.
|•||Precision Color Viewfinder (180K Pixels)|
Increased pixel count provides more detail and clarity of video subjects.
|•||Manual Shutter Speed|
Gives you optimum control over the shutter speed based upon shooting environment or desired effect.
|•||InfoLithium® Battery with AccuPower™ Meter System3|
Charge the battery at any time because unlike NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries Sony’s rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries are not subjected to a life shortening “memory effect". Sony’s exclusive AccuPower™ meter displays the battery time remaining in minutes, in the viewfinder or the LCD screen.
|•||Super SteadyShot® Optical Stabilization System|
An advanced version of Sony's SteadyShot® System that minimizes even high frequency shake and vibration using motion sensors and an optical active prism stabilizationsystem, for better performance even in difficult shooting situations.
|•||Intelligent Accessory Shoe|
Provides power, on/off and special operational commands to a variety of Sony Intelligent Accessories via an 8-pin interface. This enables easy synchronized operation between the Handycam® camcorder and such accessories as video lights, infrared lights and microphones without additional batteries or cables.
|•||Progressive Shutter System|
Mechanical shutter system that provides Progressive Scan performance while utilizing an interlace scanning system. Digital still images will be sharp and clear with excellent definition.
