Powerful 21x optical and 50x intelligent zooms let you capture scenes that are difficult to access, while a 1/4.5" high-sensitivity MOS sensor provides sharp images even in low light situations.
The camcorder records at resolutions up to 1080/60p with a maximum bit rate of 28Mbps to dual SD card slots. Choose to record to both cards simultaneously for data security, or use the relay mode which will switch to the second card when the first one is full, for extended recording times. The ergonomic design of the camcorder provides 4-points of contact for increased stability and provides a suitable distance between the 3.0" touchscreen LCD for comfortable viewing. Video outputs available are HDMI, component, and composite. A USB 2.0 interface allows footage to be transfer to external storage devices.
Other features include a 5-Axis Hybrid Optical Image Stabilizer, a Level Shot Function for correcting tiled shots, and a multi-purpose manual lens ring that controls focus, zoom, iris, white balance or shutter speed. A dynamic range stretch (DRS) feature is integrated into the system, providing a wider dynamic range when shooting in scenes with a great deal of contrast.
The camcorder also offers a photo mode that captures up to 20.4 megapixel 16:9 or 15.1 megapixel 4:3 still images. While recording video, it can take 9.4 megapixel 16:9 or 1.4 megapixel 4:3 images. A stereo microphone comes included with the camcorder.
