50Mbps XAVC S 1080/60p and 9.2MP stills w/ Exmor R CMOS - Create cinematic video in high definition 1920x1080 24p/60p up to 50Mbps in XAVC S and high quality 9.2MP still images. XAVC S format uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony?s back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor.
26.8mm wide-angle and 30x Optical / 60x Clear Image Zoom - Not only is this 26.8mm wide-angle lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but also allows you to get amazingly close with 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in un-sharp images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.
