Pro-style features and image quality

Exceptional video quality plus pro-style controls and advanced manual functions. HD 1080 recording on tape. Advanced 3ClearVid CMOS Sensor and Sony G Lens with powerful 20x optical zoom.

Better lens, better image

To achieve the best possible picture quality, a top-quality G Lens by Sony is combined with the sensitive Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor and powerful BIONZ processor. The result is detail-packed Full HD images that can be enjoyed on your HD TV.

The truest, most natural colours you’ve seen

Some camcorders can struggle to reproduce rich, natural-looking colours. x.v.Colour mimics the characteristics of the human eye, dramatically extending your creative palette with truer, more vivid blues, reds and greens.

You’re in control

If you’re serious about directing your next video masterpiece, it’s vital to maximize your creative options. Manual controls let you compose each shot just the way you want it, with precise adjustment over exposure, White Balance and other settings.

HD quality with all the convenience of tape

Many video enthusiasts and professional programmers swear by the affordability, convenience and dependability of tape. Capture brilliant 1080 HD images on low-cost HDV tape: there’s a huge range of popular editing solutions to produce polished results.
