The advanced image stabilization suppresses camera shake to stabilize a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range, even under unsteady conditions. 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running. Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimizing lens motion, predicting suitable AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.
Whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 26.8 mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode. Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing. The high-bitrate XAVC S format is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.
The large, cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing. The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities. At the heart of superlative optical performance, the Sony G Lens works in perfect harmony with the Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor. It's essential for realizing the exquisitely detailed images that great memories are made of.
