Get the best ever picture and sound performance with the advanced HDR-CX700VE HD Handycam®. Light and compact enough to take anywhere, this stylish camcorder includes the most advanced features and technology to shoot full 1080p video at 50p or 25p frame rate or crystal clear 12.3 megapixel still shots. Here’s a Handycam that makes it easy to capture your precious memories in brilliant quality. On board is a superlative Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor, Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode and a 29.8mm wide angle G lens for panoramic group shots and landscapes. With a huge 96GB internal flash memory, you can store up to 39 hours of Full HD video on the CX700VE and even more using memory cards. Transferring your movies to your PC or sharing them with friends is easy and hassle-free with a built-in USB cable or simply watch them on the large 3” Xtra Fine LCD 3.0 wide Xtra Fine LCD™ display with TruBlack™ technology.
No need to worry about running out of storage space. The CX700VE includes a huge 96GB of built-in Flash Memory for storing up to 39 hours of high definition video footage (in HD LP mode). Of course, you can get even more simply by inserting an optional SD card or Memory Stick into the camcorder.
Step up to super smooth, intensely detailed HD movie making with pin-sharp pictures, deep contrast and natural colours. HD recording using AVCHD (Audio Video Compression for HD) captures five times the detail of standard definition in Full HD 1920 x 1080. However, the camera has the capability of recording up to a maximum bit rate of 28MBps. (The camera does have the 28Mbps mode but it is not supported by AVCHD). What’s more, with 1920x1080/50p recording, CX700VE films at an exceptional 50 Full HD frames per second in progressive mode for the clearest possible footage.
This sophisticated camcorder uses a high sensitivity Exmor R™ CMOS Sensor designed to capture detail-packed images even in low light. Shoot at dawn, dusk or in dimly lit rooms and you’ll see none of the graininess or fuzziness of some inferior camcorders. The 29.8mm wide angle G lens covers around twice the area of a standard camcorder lens with 10x optical zoom and 14x extended zoom to catch impressive close-ups and far away panoramas.
You’ll never need worry about hand shake while shooting with the CX700VE as this camcorder includes Optical SteadyShot with Active Mode, the definitive solution for stable recordings even while walking or zooming in. Optical SteadyShot™ with Active Mode image stabilization lets you capture smooth handheld video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting with best-ever ‘3-way’ camera shake correction at all zoom settings. Ideal when touring cities or capturing sports action.
As well as taking super-sharp video, you’ll also be able to capture some finely detailed still photos courtesy of a built-in 12.3 megapixel camera. One solution for all your imaging needs.
The easy-to-use CX700VE takes the effort out of home movie making with iAuto. This intelligent scene recognition feature recognises your surroundings and automatically adjusts light and focus settings to give you the best possible results wherever and whenever you are. The unique iAUTO selects from 90 possible settings then uses clever Sony-exclusive technologies to optimise shots for faces, smiles, low-light levels, different scenes or anti-shake adjustment.
The CX700VE includes a large 3.0-inch wide (7.5cm) Xtra Fine LCD so you can easily compose scenes and enjoy finely detailed playback. Being a touch screen, it’s a breeze to use. Access menus and settings with your fingertips and view footage with friends seconds after you’ve shot it. The electronic viewfinder lets you frame shots with absolute confidence, even when you're shooting in bright sunlight.
Your home movies deserve a great soundtrack and that’s what they get with CX700VE. The precision microphone captures 5.1 channel surround sound with enhanced sensitivity and reduced wind noise. A high quality stereo speaker system with S-Master digital amplifier delivers clear, natural stereo sound when playing back your recordings.
No point keeping all those great memories in your camcorder. With its built-in USB arm and cable, CX700VE connects in a moment to your PC for transferring video and stills. What’s more, the PMB Portable software inside Handycam® launches automatically for quick and easy web uploading – ideal of you want to share movies via your favourite social networking site. The USB arm makes charging a doddle too.

If you love travelling, the built-in GPS receiver will really impress. View your current location on the LCD map display and tag shooting locations so you can remember exactly where in the world you've been.
