Beyond high technology, Handycam® performance relies on closer attention to human factors. Such as the flexibility to create, shape, share, and discover better ways for images to really move you. Plus, the focus on more carefree yet functional approaches to get to the heart of a subject. The integrity of Sony’s know-how is dedicated to more fun and exciting movie-making, from start to finish. So this is more than just a new Handycam®, it’s a handier way of providing as much happiness as you can handle — for this generation and those lucky ones to come.
At the intersection of visionary technology and design, Handycam® image quality reigns supreme. A ZEISS lens, Exmor R™ CMOS image sensor and BIONZ X™ image processing engine are the essence of picture performance. Zoom coverage as wide as 26.8mm is expansive, and XAVC S 50Mbps high-bitrate recording captures scenes of remarkable dynamism in detail.
