The makings of a masterpiece.
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when captured in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p Full HD video. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? 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.
Ready, set, project.
This is really cool. Featuring a high-contrast 13 lumen projector built into the LCD panel, you can transform your camcorder into a mobile movie theater by projecting onto a wall or virtually any flat surface. It's great for sharing footage on the fly, but since it works with HDMI-compatible smartphones, laptops and tablets, you can also project YouTube™ videos, photos, full-length films and more. It's tons of fun for family movie night, and super convenient for professionals who want to share presentations on the spot.
Incredible 55x zoom.
Sometimes it's difficult to move closer to faraway subjects to nail the shot. That's where powerful zoom enters the equation. 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, from a moving vehicle 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.
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.
