Fun, easy shooting with ultra zoom

Very light and compact: fun, easy shooting with powerful 60x optical zoom. Crisp video quality on 4GB internal memory, or add optional Memory Stick™ to boost shooting time. Easy web uploads with supplied PMB software.

Small and light enough to keep with you

With less size and weight to carry, it’s easy to slip your camcorder into a pocket or bag: you can be sure it’s always with you, wherever you go.

Get closer than you’ve ever been before

It’s like packing a telescope with your camcorder. This incredible 60x zoom range makes sure that distant subjects fill the frame. You’ve never seen such amazing, detail-packed close-ups.

Close-up on clear, sparkling audio

You don’t want to be distracted by background chatter, rustling leaves and other off-camera noises when you’re focused on your subject. This super-smart microphone zooms in on the action when you do, letting you see – and hear – everything in close-up.

Have more fun with your video collection

It’s easy to manage your video clips and photos with Picture Motion Browser for your PC – included free with your camcorder. Sort, search and browse through all your clips and photos in an instant. Burn them to disc, email to friends or upload to social networking sites with a few clicks.

Super-fast backups

After shooting, it’s quick and easy to burn your footage onto DVD for safekeeping or sharing with friends. Just hook up the compact VRD-P1 DVDirect Express and burn those memories at super speed.
