The camera also incorporates the latest optical and technological innovations from Sony so you can be sure all your memories will be saved in crisp, clear quality.

Generous storage for your movies

That's nearly four whole days of video - perfect for capturing holiday memories or long events like a friend's wedding. You can also add an optional memory card for even more capacity.

Easy to use touch screen
The camera comes with an easy-to-navigate 2.7-inch (6.7cm) touch screen which is a breeze to use. Its spot focus function lets you compose your scenes easily and shoot like a professional. And because it's a touch screen, menus and settings are just one tap away. As the screen is big enough to be viewed by more than one person you can share what you've shot right there and then.

Face detection and instant lighting
When shooting people, Face Detection will detect up to eight faces and adjust the camera's settings to deliver natural skin tones and makes sure all are in focus. There's also an on-board video light to brighten up parties, interiors and other dimly-lit scenes.

Simple to use
Using the SR78 is simplicity itself. The camera takes the guesswork out of shooting in tricky light thanks to its intelligent auto functions. If you prefer to be in control, easy-to-select modes include dusk, sunrise & sunset, fireworks, landscape, portrait, spot, sports (video only), candlelight, beach, snow for perfect movies every time.

Capture the action faster
Great action can come and go swiftly, so you don't want to waste valuable time starting up your camera. You can start up the DCR-SR78 in a matter of seconds so you'll never miss a special moment. Just flip open the screen, touch the start key and you're ready to shoot.

SteadyShot image stabiliser reduces picture blur
If you're not using a tripod and shooting with the camera in your hand, one slight shake could make your movie look less than professional. To avoid this, SteadyShot works automatically as a handy digital image stabiliser to ensure you get steady images every time, even when you're zooming in to capture close up details.

Managing your movies is 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 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 burn them to discs, send them to friends or upload them to your favourite video sharing sites in seconds.

Share your memories easily
One of the great pleasures of shooting videos is sharing them with family and friends. It couldn't be easier with the SX33. You can transfer your films to your PC using a super-fast USB 2.0 connection and use an optional DVD burner to make DVD copies. PictBridge functionality also lets you print still images without using a computer.

Quick search with Face Index function
Or rather than transferring your movies, simply use BRAVIA Sync to navigate through what you've recorded and play a movie straight from your Handycam® on your big screen BRAVIA. The camera also offers a Video output and S-Video output so you can instantly show your stills or videos on a variety of other screens.

Quick search with Face Index function
Find friends, family or a particular scene with quick, easy searches through your Handycam® footage.

60x optical zoom for great close ups
The SR78 features a powerful Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with ultra-powerful 60x optical zoom range to pull distant objects closer without losing clarity.

Superb image quality in all conditions
The SR78 captures images in MPEG2 format for super sharp high quality images. It also includes 800k CCD sensor for greater light sensitivity. The result is detailed natural looking results.

Add more storage easily
In addition to the hard disk drive or built-in flash memory, you can record video and still images directly to Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media, Secure Digital (SD), or SDHC media card (all sold separately).

The Direct Copy feature lets you copy footage directly to any external hard disk drive via a USB cable when connected to AC power, for PC-free back-up and archiving.
