Advanced features for great movies
The performance packed into the top-class 4K Handycam® is peerless. Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ and Fast Intelligent AF achieve exactly the images you aim for. A new microphone structure captures ambience that’s all-surrounding. You can even play with time in motion or gain control of pro-style/manual functions. The possibilities and pleasures are endless.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™
Advanced image stabilisation suppresses camera shake to stabilise a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces effects of camera shake even under unstable conditions with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running.

4K image quality
Shoot 4K footage that contains about four times more detail than Full HD (3840 x 2160 pixels vs. 1920 x 1080) footage, and capture more of the incredible qualities that bring images to vibrant life.

The keys to extraordinary image quality
Advanced lens and image sensor capabilities enhance high-precision depiction, sensitivity and power.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot
Superior image stabilisation lets you shoot steadily throughout the zoom range even as you walk.

Fast Intelligent Autofocus (AF)
Extra-efficient lens drive and AF range prediction can shift focus from far to near subjects quickly.

High-quality sound recording
New mic structure captures sound from five directions with approximately 40% less noise2 for realistic ambience.

Have fun during and after shooting
Get creative with High Speed REC and Time-lapse Capture to make an impressive movie.   

More professional-style functions   
Shoot like a pro with manual setting functions, EVF, plus Time Code and User Bit data recording.
