Superb close ups with a 50x optical zoom
Bring far away action closer without losing clarity using the powerful 50x optical zoom built in to this camcorder’s high quality Sony lens.
Digital Steady Shot™ reduces blur
Shooting with a camcorder in your hand means one slight shake could turn your movie into one big blur. To avoid this, Digital Steady Shot™ works automatically as a digital image stabiliser to ensure you get steady images every time - even when you're zooming in.
Face Detection for great group shots
When shooting people, Face Detection adjusts the camera's settings to deliver natural skin tones and makes sure up to eight faces in your shot are in focus. It’s also perfect for shooting portraits.
Keep your precious memories with DVDirect
The SX15 is compatible with DVDirect, an optional portable DVD burner that burns your camcorder footage straight onto DVDs so you can keep them and enjoy them at any time on your DVD player. You don’t even need a PC or special software - just press a button and let DVDirect do the rest.
Lightweight and compact
Because you never know when you'll want to shoot something, the SX15 is small and light enough to take everywhere - pop it in your bag for a party or slip it in your pocket for a walk in the park.
Easy to use
Using the SX15 is simplicity itself. The camera includes easy-to-select modes for many lighting conditions including dusk, sunrise & sunset, fireworks, landscape, portrait, spot, sports (video only), candlelight, beach, snow for perfect movies every time. Backlight compensation ensures people won’t appear as silhouettes in whatever you’re shooting and pressing the Easy Handycam® button means you can simply point and shoot.
Makes managing your movies fun and simple
The included Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software takes the effort out of organising your movies. Just install it on your PC and you'll have a perfect archive for your films which are all just a click or two away. You can arrange them by date, by person, and search through them quickly. You can then easily burn them to discs, send them to friends or upload them to your favourite video sharing sites like YouTube™ in seconds.
Superb image quality
The SX15 captures images in MPEG2 format for sharp, high quality images. It also includes an 800k CCD sensor which offers increased sensitivity and captures crisp, clear video. The result is beautifully natural looking results. The intelligent auto shooting mode also means everything you film will look extraordinary detailed.
Video light for indoor shooting
Shooting indoors or in low light conditions? The built-in Video Light will illuminate what’s in front of the camera so you can capture the action.
Capture the action faster
Great action can come and go in seconds, so you don't want to waste time starting up your camera. Switch on the SX15 and it’s ready to go in seconds so you'll never miss a special moment.
