Make no compromises
Why compromise video quality? Precious moments like your child’s first smile don’t come every day, after all. What you need is a high quality high definition camcorder that can capture those special memories as they happen and preserve the intensity of the original moment. A camcorder that’s small and light that films razor-sharp Full HD 1080p video and also takes exceptionally good still images – at the same time if necessary. Something offering better sound, higher zoom and longer recording so you can catch the action just the way you want it, whether you’re sightseeing in Madrid or filming the guests sipping bubbly at your cousin’s wedding.
Sharp and natural photos, even when enlarged
Well, wait no longer. Here’s a camcorder that makes many sophisticated cameras green with envy. It’s so good, even photos blown up to A3 size or played back on your big screen TV look great. No more fuzzy faces, diluted detail or blurred backgrounds. No more hammering away at the delete button because you’re disappointed with image quality. The secret? Loads of pixels – over 24 million of them to be precise. More than enough to make impressive large prints or crop a picture to focus on something specific without losing definition. And when you want to close in on something far away, you can zoom in up to 10 times. Just what you need to catch that heron holding court on the island in the lake.
See it how it is
Even better, you can frame the shot exactly how you want it using the electronic viewfinder. You see the actual digital image in the eyepiece rather than the approximation you see with an optical viewfinder. Every shot is precise and true which is important when you’re closing in on fine details and want to get the picture just perfect.
Just like being there
Switch to video and you’ll be ready to shoot gloriously detailed high definition footage that’s brimming with colour and life.* This camcorder captures four times the detail of a standard definition camcorder. That means everything you shoot looks sharper and clearer with vivid, lifelike colours and rich tones. Just try capturing the view on a sunny morning in the countryside – you’ll see every blade of grass, all the veins in a leaf and perfectly defined cloud formations.
Film day or night
How about those candle-blowing moments in the dark at your child’s birthday party? We can all remember shooting the kids as they cluster around the cake, only to be royally disappointed with the dark, grainy results. With this camcorder, you’ll have no such problem as it includes an Exmor R CMOS sensor, one of the most sophisticated low light sensors available. And if that’s not enough, you also have NightShot, a clever Sony technology that uses a series of special LEDs around the lens to enable it to see in the dark.
