The makings of a masterpiece.

You can shoot 8.9MP still images and video at the same time so you won't miss an ounce of the action. Gather up the gang and share your fantastic footage on the big screen simply by connecting the camcorder to your compatible HDTV with an HDMI™ cable.
Incredible 55x Extended Zoom.
Capture faraway subjects without moving an inch. Featuring Extended Zoom digital technology that works in conjunction with 30x optical zoom, you can get 55x closer to the action, all while maintaining HD image quality. Your video will be crisp and clear, even as you pan in for extreme close-ups.
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video?from wide angle, all the way to full telephoto shooting. Innovative 3-way shake-canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. It's perfect for shooting footage while walking, chasing after the kids or any other less-than-steady scenario.
HD optimized for TV or web.
When it comes to HD quality and file size, you've got options. Choose between shooting in the AVCHD™ or MP4 formats depending on how you plan to use and share the footage. AVCHD provides premium video quality that looks amazing when played back on large screen HDTVs. MP4 is a smaller file size perfect for quick, easy uploads to sites like Facebook® and YouTube or storing in the cloud. The best part? It's all HD, and it all looks incredible.
Complement your first-class video footage with equally excellent audio. The Handycam HDR-CX380 camcorder includes a built-in microphone for capturing the sounds of special occasions, but also features a dedicated mic input for expanded audio recording options (external microphone sold separately).
Never lose focus.
Your subjects will stay crisp, clear and blur-free thanks to advanced focusing technology. Working as an extension of Face Detection technology, Tracking Focus allows you to select the subject you'd like to keep in focus simply by touching the LCD. Even if the object leaves the frame then comes back in again, the camcorder will maintain a tack-sharp focus as your subject moves in and out of view.
