Model Details

Take control of sound and vision with the DCR-VX2100, offering the brightest video results of all Sony MiniDV models.

1/3" Advanced HAD™ 3 CCD imagers with 380k gross pixels each
12X optical zoom lens with 48X digital zoom
Aspherical ground glass 58mm lens
Manual zoom and focus rings
Super SteadyShot® optical stabilization system


MiniDV Recording
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.

Stamina Power Management System 9 Hours (Using Optional NP-F960)
The Sony DCR-VX2100 can record for up to 9 hours or playback for up to 13 hours (with LCD screen off) on a single charge with the optional NP-F960.

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.

Additional Detailed Information:
Take Control of Sound and Vision with the DCR-VX2100, offering the brightest video results of all Sony MiniDV models. With its new Advanced HAD™ progressive scan CCD technology, illumination is improved dramatically, delivering superior low-light performance without the use of infrared technology. By increasing the CCD's sensitivity to light, clearer, brighter video with more lifelike color can be captured, even when recording in dimly lit environments.

Its 58mm aspherical lens and duel-position neutral density filter minimize distortion from standard spherical lenses and compensate for varying lighting situations such as studio lights or direct sunlight. Additionally, the VX2100 includes a built-in lens cap to protect the enhanced optics package, manual audio control and PCM Digital Stereo Audio in 12 and 16-bit modes, a manual focus and manual zoom ring, built-in color bar generator, 16:9 wide screen recording capability, intelligent accessory shoe, both 12x optical and 48x digital zoom, advanced optical SteadyShot® picture stabilization and up to seven hours1 of operation with the optional NP-F960 InfoLithium® battery.
