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   A very good compact video camera

Review submitted for Sony HDR-CX160 Handycam Full HD Black 16GB Camcorder w/ 30x Optical Zoom (SNHDRCX160B)
Pros: Great Sound, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Large Clear LCD
Cons:
Other Comments: I use this camera to produce location videos for my real estate company. The wide angle lens is perfect for shooting building interiors. The low light capability is good for shooting inside buildings that do not have electricity turned on. It would be really great if the camera came with a remote control for start/stop and zoom.

Cons:
Other Comments: I've only had the camcorder for a week, but it seems to do what I want. Not the best for sports and fast action soccer, but a quality upgrade would probably be much more expensive.
