Product Description

A small design that gets the big picture
Compact, lightweight and packed with features, take this camcorder with you to get just the shots you want – from everyday moments to unexpected action scenes. Zoom in, get closer and let your camcorder capture the moment without any worries.

Get close with optical and extended zoom
With the 60x optical zoom lens, you can capture clear, detailed shots of faraway subjects – from wildlife to kids playing on a beach. With the 70x extended zoom you can look for subjects even further afield, and film them with almost no loss of image quality.

Clear pictures in low light
Filming at night or somewhere dark? Throw light on to your subjects with the integrated LED video light. Twilight evenings, party shots or any dimly lit scene will be illuminated from up to 1.5 metres away, so you can capture clear, detailed footage of those special moments.

Get the shots you want, with no hassle
It’s easy to get the shots you're looking for with Intelligent Auto (iAuto). Your camcorder automatically recognises up to 18 scenes and 8 different faces then optimises settings to create the best shot. Just start recording and let your Handycam® do the hard work.


Easy to share what you’ve shot
With Picture Motion Browser (PMB) portable pre-loaded on your Handycam®, it’s simple to share videos on Facebook™ or YouTube™. You can even use it to organise videos on your computer and search for friends or family to find shots where their faces appear.

- Capture stills in sharp detail - With 8.9 megapixel still image recording, you can shoot crisp, clear High Definition photos as well as movies
- Just point and shoot, without adjusting settings - iAuto automatically adjusts settings for the best results, recognising different faces, lighting and scenes such as landscapes

- Stay smooth on the move - With SteadyShot camera shake correction you’ll capture smooth video at all zoom settings, even when you’re walking
- Capture people’s faces in the right light - Face Detection automatically detects up to 8 faces in a scene, then optimises exposure for the best results
- Shoot in low light and darkness - With a bright and energy efficient integrated LED video light you can shine light up to 1.5 metres in dark environments

The Sony DCR-SX22 Camcorder was without a doubt the worst camcorder I have ever had or used, It takes the most horrendous videos, all have a saw edge on the images, and the still pictures are terrible, I have other camcorders and cameras some expensive and some rock bottom cheap, and the latter knocks spots off this thing, For a company like Sony i am suprised to say the least that they can put something like this on the market.
No matter what settings you use it doesent make any difference, low light, sunny, inside or outside its awful.
Who knows possibly mine was just a bad example, possibly just a faulty one, i dont know but i wasted no time in returning it back to Amazon who have refunded my money (thanks Amazon) so take my advise, steer clear of the SX22 by Sony.

I've bought this just before our wedding. Very good camcorder. Small, handy, very light. Great quality movies. I found it easy to operate even without manual. Battery life is good - I've been using it for 16-20 hours (with some stops in-between filming). Item despatched very quick. Definitely recommended for people who are lookig for some good, reliable and not expensive camcorder.
