96GB Full HD Camcorder with Projector

Ready, Set, Project

Turn down the lights and turn on the high-contrast 35-lumen projector built into the LCD panel. You've just transformed your camcorder into a mobile movie theater by projecting onto a wall or virtually any flat surface. It's great for sharing footage on the fly, but since it works with HDMI-compatible smartphones, laptops and tablets, you can also project YouTube™ videos, photos, full-length films and more.



Video Enthusiasts Rejoice

Make your filmmaking debut with ultra-smooth HD, a 5.1-channel microphone, and built-in projector to showcase your masterpiece. This 24.1MP camcorder delivers Full HD 24p/60p recording, ideal for fascinating storytelling. What's more, you get manual control and minimal shake when shooting on the move with Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization, plus a top-mounted mic for crystal-clear surround sound recording.


The Makings of a Masterpiece

Precious moments become even more special the second time around when captured in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p/24p Full HD video. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? You can shoot crystal-clear 24.1MP still images and video at the same time so you won't miss an ounce of the action. Gather up the gang and share your fantastic footage on the big screen simply by connecting the camcorder to your compatible HDTV with an HDMI® cable.


Breakthrough Anti-Shake Technology

Blurry footage is a sure way to ruin any scene. Balanced Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for a greater degree of camera shake significantly reducing blur and delivering stunningly smooth video. By moving the entire optical block at once, this revolutionary technology maintains the integrity of the optical path for reduced levels of distortion and vignetting, plus noticeably smoother videos with significantly less blur.


Go Manual

Get the most out of your camcorder with advanced capture and control features often considered the domain of professional cameras. A convenient assignable dial gives you manual control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris and shutter speed, plus the ability to experiment with more advanced features like zebra and peaking.


Premium Audio Quality

The top-mounted 5.1-surround sound microphone is independent and isolated from the camcorder for premium audio capture. Using the supplied windscreen drastically reduces the amount of background and wind noise by up to 90%. Plus, the new Advanced Sound System offers a wider dynamic range and crisper, cleaner sound while Audio REC level adjustments deliver even more creative control.


Add Accessories and Wi-Fi

The newly integrated multi-interface shoe opens up a world of accessories to enhance your videos. Attach lights, monitors and other accessories to help you get the best shots in any situation. There's even an optional wireless module (ADP-WL1M) that lets you tap into Wi-Fi to turn your smartphone or tablet into a remote control, instantly upload footage to the web or wirelessly backup data to your PC.


PlayMemories Online

With PlayMemories Online, all of your photos and videos can finally be stored, accessed and neatly organized in one place – regardless which device they were taken with. Enjoy your memories wherever, whenever you want on your smartphone, tablet, computer or TV. All images and video clips are automatically optimized to the screen size they're on. Create a photo album in three easy steps to share with friends and family via email or brighten a loved one's inbox with a personalized postcard – it's easy.
