Fun, easy shooting with high-power zoom

Handycam® lets you enjoy crisp SD video quality with long recording time on the high capacity built-in HDD. Fun, easy shooting with powerful 50x optical zoom and smart features for sharing and enjoying your footage.

Better images in low light

Shooting in low light can be a challenge for your camcorder: it often results in disappointing, grainy images spoiled by noise. Offering improved sensitivity compared with previous models, a new CCD sensor captures light more efficiently for cleaner, better-looking low-light images.

Natural looking faces every time

Faces can look dark and underexposed in bright, backlit situations like a sun-drenched beach. And if you’re shooting indoors there’s a risk your subject’s skin tone can look unnaturally coloured. The camcorder fine-tunes focus, exposure and skin tone for more natural looking faces.

Easy uploads with PMB

Don’t keep those moments to yourself: sharing your clips and digital photos online has never been simpler. Supplied with your camcorder, PMB software lets you browse, manage and select your favourite memories for quick, fuss-free uploads to popular sharing sites like YouTube™ Daily Motion and Facebook.

Get closer than you’ve ever been before

It’s like packing a telescope with your camcorder. This incredible 50x zoom range makes sure that distant subjects fill the frame. You’ve never seen such amazing, detail-packed close-ups.

Brighten up your subject

Don’t get left in the dark. A video light illuminates your subject for great results when you’re shooting in low light at parties, indoors or with night-time scenes.
