Discontinued.
Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
Take 1920 x 1080 Full HD videos with the ultra-compact HDR-CX160. It features an "Exmor R" CMOS sensor for superior low-light performance plus a wide angle Sony G lens.

1920x1080 Full HD 60p Recording w/3MP still image
1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional Sony Full High Definition quality. Capable of 1080/60p recording and playback via HDMI and compatible HDTV providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed playback of your memories.

16GB embedded Flash Memory for up to 6 hours of recording
The built-in 16GB embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 6 hours of high definition video footage (HD LP mode).

Wide Angle G lens to capture everything you want.
Experience the pinnacle of Sony lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, the 29.8mm focal length offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting.

42x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action
Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 30x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

Back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor for superb low-light video
Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the "Exmor R" sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ Active Mode
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.

3.0" touch-screen Clear Photo LCD Plus display (230K)
The 3.0" Clear Photo LCD Plus display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.

Tracking Focus follows selected subjects
Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object.

Event Browse groups photos/videos for you for easy reference
Event Browse conveniently groups your images and videos together for easier viewing. The date range that Event Browse groups your pictures and videos is easily adjusted to suit your needs. When used with the Highlight Playback feature, making and sharing a highlight reel from your event is easy and fun.

Highlight Playback creates movies with transitions for you
Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel.

Wind noise reduction for clear voice recording
Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience.

Intelligent Auto (90 different scene combinations possible)
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes (90 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod.

Direct Copy to external HDD without PC
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive13 (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder's handy playback features.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it.

Golf Shot
Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite "sequence shot" image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.

4 out of 5 stars   great little camcorder...
By COmtngrl (Aspen, CO) July 28, 2011
Review submitted for Sony HDR-CX160 Handycam HD Black 16GB Camcorder ULTIMATE BUNDLE (E1SNHDRCX160B)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Sound
Cons: Poor In Low Light, Software too complicated
Other Comments: I only got to use my handycam 2 times, but it seemed to be a great camera. The software was so complicated and unusable on my pc with Windows XP that I would think twice about re-purchasing it. I unfortunately lost it to a flash flood that destroyed everything in my home. I did get some nice footage from it in the short time that I owned it (10 days) :(

4 out of 5 stars   Great buy
By BOBBYB (NYC, NY) June 08, 2011
Review submitted for Sony HDR-CX160 Handycam HD Black 16GB Camcorder ULTIMATE BUNDLE (E1SNHDRCX160B)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Good Image Stabilization, Highlight feature cool, Great machine Great price, Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
Cons: Limited Zoom
Other Comments: I use the video for business related work mostly...it has exceeded my expectations. I would like to be able to save all my still photo's directly on the memory card alone, without having to choose between card or internal memory before shooting...but thats my prefference. The software allows for reducing the resolution size of your photo's so if you need to add them to a report, they don't overly increase the file size when sending it in an email! Again...my prefference!!! The Highlight feature turns your home video into a true professional reproduction of your event!!! It's excellent...blew me away!!!

5 out of 5 stars   Great family/vaction/event camcorder
By Rob the super-picky (Minneapolis, MN) June 04, 2011
Review submitted for Sony HDR-CX160 Handycam HD Black 16GB Camcorder ULTIMATE BUNDLE (E1SNHDRCX160B)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Easy to Use, Zoom range/performance, Good Image Stabilization, Large Clear LCD, Good in Low Light
Cons: Poor Still Image
Other Comments: A FANTASTIC family camcorder! It really packs a punch without completely breaking the bank. This thing is great - for what it is. This camcorder will not replace your still camera. The still images are a lower resolution than just about any current still camera - and still images in low light a trouble (it has no flash). (Video in low light is no problem though.)

Pros:
Cons:
Other Comments: My third Sony handycam - I always buy in the middle of the product line, looking for the best mix of features. This camera produces great HD footage, love the external mic jack, good zoom control (but even better with the mini tripod/remote grip accessory). The polarizing filter is useful, as is the extra battery and the memory card. Very happy with my purchase.

Perfect for graduations were you have to seat in statium and graduates are in center field. Steady while walking,great picture quality. The bad is the zoom button located in a bad location and does not feel ergonomic.
