Capture More, Worry Less
When you’re jetting round the globe on new adventures, you don’t want to get bogged down with a camcorder that’s tricky to use. And it’s a drag at home too – when your cat’s stuck deep in the kitchen bin, it won’t stay there forever.
With the Handycam CX280E, you can point and shoot super–smooth Full HD – fast. Its Optical SteadyShot image stabilisation means you’ll get the goods every time. Throw in a wide–angle Carl Zeiss lens and there’s not a scrap of the action that’ll get away from you.
And if all that wasn’t enough, the Exmor R CMOS sensor lets you get great shots even in low light. Just the thing for catching breathtaking sunrises over the ruins of Angkor Wat. Or getting the perfect shot of poor Tiddles’ failed bin–dive to post on your partner’s Facebook page.
Take it in Your Stride
Shooting from the hip as you hit the streets? Optical SteadyShot Active Mode keeps your pictures smooth and steady at all times. Because the lens itself shifts, it irons out bumps and jolts more effectively than digital stabilisation methods. It even works when zooming in or in low light.
See the Whole Picture
From a packed town square to your local street party, take in the scene and make it part of your shots. A wide–angle Vario–Tessar lens by Carl Zeiss lets you capture a larger image area without having to stand back – and without compromising detail.
Get a Little Closer
Picking out the perfect detail doesn’t mean missing out on the big picture. With extended zoom up to 50x, you won’t miss a thing. Extended zoom features advanced image processing so there’s almost no image degradation, whether you’re shooting wide or telephoto.
Lights Out, Game On
Don’t be afraid of the dark. Get the shot that makes your night. The Exmor R CMOS sensor is twice as sensitive as conventional sensors, capturing every detail, even without flash. No more grainy, fuzzy, dim images – just crisp, clear pictures.
Shooting super close–up or fast–action scenes? Capture high quality images in smooth, sharp detail. It’s all thanks to the 50p progressive shooting mode, with a high bit rate of image capture so you’ll catch each raised eyebrow and every spreading smile.
