  • New image sensor and New ZEISS™ Vario-Sonnar® T* lens exclusively for 4K
    A newly developed image sensor, with pixels of approximately 1.6 times bigger size15, offers superior sensitivity for capturing beautiful high-quality images with less noise under dark as well as bright shooting conditions. Shoot 4K footage that contains about four times more detail than Full HD (3840 x 2160 pixels vs. 1920 x 1080) footage, and capture more of the incredible qualities that bring images to vibrant life. This new lens helps to depict remarkable details of high-quality 4K images throughout its wide-angle-to-telephoto range. The use of an AA (advanced aspherical) lens not only keeps depiction faithful, it also keeps the lens unit compact. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens helps to ensure accurate reproduction of color. Multilayer ZEISS T* Coating further enhances image quality by reducing unwanted reflection, such as ghost and flare.
     
  • Up to 26.8 mm wide-angle lens and Extensive zoom shooting capabilities
    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 mm1 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode. 20x optical zoom lens and Clear Image Zoom of 30x/40x (for 4K/HD) allow you to shoot far away subjects and capture memorable moments.
     
  • Balanced Optical SteadyShot and Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments
    Advanced image stabilization suppresses camera shake to stabilize a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces effects of camera shake even under unstable conditions with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating 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 the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.
     
  • Face Detection and Smile Shutter and Motion Shot Video
    Use Face Detection to optimize focus, exposure and color for people who are the most important subject of a shot. You can prioritize a subject’s face by touching it on the LCD. And with Smile Shutter, the camera can also automatically capture still shots of great (but fleeting) smiles, even while recording movies. This convenient feature allows playback of a dramatic sequence of superimposed images to trace every split second of action, a powerful tool for analyzing sports motion on screen. During playback, you can adjust the interval between images, or pause to capture still images to share with friends.
     
  • 5.1ch surround sound microphone
    Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theater system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel’s levels.
     
  • Xtra Fine LCD with WhiteMagic
    The high-precision Xtra Fine LCD features a WhiteMagic display that uses white pixels in addition to RGB pixels to boost screen brightness, allowing users to see subtle details and tones on the screen in all types of shooting environments, including outdoors in bright sunlight.
     
  • One-touch remote and one-touch sharing
