Start filming in HD

You’ve got a high definition television at home and you know it makes perfect sense to film your own movies in HD. More detail, brighter colours, sharper contrast – who wouldn’t want that? You don’t need anything complicated or too heavy to carry in the hand. It has to be light, a doddle to use and capable of capturing all those precious memories with a flick of your finger. Everything automatic so when you see your friends doing the bunny hop at a party, you can catch them instantly. In brilliant high definition, of course.

Just like being there

So what’s the big deal about high definition? Well, quality basically. This camcorder captures four times the detail of a standard definition camcorder. That means everything you shoot looks sharper and clearer with vivid, lifelike colours and rich tones. Just try capturing the view across the rooftops on your next city break or the colourful hats at a wedding.

Easily handles low light

How many times have you filmed a child blowing out the candles on a birthday cake, only to get back home and be royally disappointed with the dark, grainy results? Low light kills detail on many camcorders. Not on this one, though, as it includes an Exmor R CMOS sensor, one of the most sophisticated low light sensors available. So when you’re capturing the end of a party or the last rays of the sun from your hotel balcony, you can be sure darkness won't hide the detail.

Even takes nice photos

You don’t want to haul around a camcorder and a camera, if you can possibly help it. This Handycam lets you take really good-looking shots with sharp detail and natural colour at the touch of a button. You can zoom in up to 25 times and capture close-ups and distant shots without losing clarity. Think how good that would be on safari or your next family outing to the zoo.

Keeps things steady

Don’t worry about camera shake. Electronic SteadyShot keeps everything steady so you can shoot clearly while walking around town or when closing in on a distant subject. And because Electronic SteadyShot is always active, composing your shot on the LCD screen while moving into the best possible position is a doddle.

Great shots made easy

Selecting the perfect settings for a particular scene can be daunting. No need to worry with this camcorder as Intelligent Auto (iAUTO) does all that for you. How? By automatically recognising up to 60 scenes and adjusting settings for the best possible picture. So if you’re shooting mountains, colours and focus will be optimised for landscapes. Best of all, iAuto is quick and easy to activate - just flip open the screen, touch the start icon and shoot.

No point in squinting

We’ve all done it or laughed at someone else doing it. Squinting through a tiny screen to frame a shot or review footage. This camcorder refuses to put you in that ridiculous situation by including a large touch screen with a wide viewing angle. Compose your scenes with ease - menus and settings are just a tap away. With outstanding detail, high contrast and less reflection, gathering round the bar with your friends to share your great shots of the beach or piste is so much more fun.

Let’s face it, we like smiles

They’re natural, spontaneous, here one moment, gone the next. You just don’t have time to set up for a quick smile shot so this camcorder does it all for you. Smile Shutter automatically takes pictures when people smile – great for brides and grooms, birthday celebrations and baby chuckles. Face Detection automatically adjusts exposure, focus and skin tone so everyone looks more natural. After all, the better you look, the more you like your photos!

Connect and share

What’s the point keeping all those great memories in your camcorder? Use the built-in USB cable and PlayMemories software to easily transfer video and photos to your PC, upload to the web or share on social networking sites. Ingeniously hidden in the handstrap, the cable is great for travelling as it takes up no space at all and allows you to leave your normal USB cable and AC Adaptor at home.

Your own short movies at the touch of a button

If only there was a quick and easy way to turn your latest holiday video into a professional looking movie, without having to spend ages slaving over a PC. You know, with transition effects and background music and a nice opening sequence. Highlight Playback does it all for you in a jiffy. Access directly with one touch from the Event Browse playback interface and easily create your movie using selected pictures and videos. Save as a new movie and burn to DVD or upload to social networking sites via PlayMemories Home so all your friends and family can enjoy your latest adventure.
