Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 24p / 60p and high quality 9.2MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor R® CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R® CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.
On standard Optical SteadyShot™ camcorders a single "shift lens" is moved in the optical block to offset camera shake. Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ with Active Mode moves the entire optical block at once, maintaining the integrity of the optical path and reducing shake. It also reduces vignetting (light falloff towards the edge of a scene) and lowers distortion in videos and still photos.

Get amazingly close with 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in unsharp images. With Clear Image Zoom, the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.
