    Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 12x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

    3.0 inch touch-screen Xtra Fine LCD display (921K) w/TruBlack technology

    The 3.0" (16:9) Xtra Fine LCD screen (921K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene. TruBlack technology brings remarkably higher contrast delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare.

    Tracking Focus follows selected subjects in/out of the frame

    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, even if it leaves the frame and returns.

    5.1ch Surround mic for vivid and dynamic surround sound.

    Dolby Digital 5.1 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording.

    Expanded recording/monitoring with mic/headphone jack

    Features dedicated mic and headphone inputs for expanded audio recording options and convenient monitoring of audio with headphones (external microphones and headphones sold separately).

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.

    Clear Phase stereo speakers for true and dynamic sound

    Bring your video alive with Clear Phase stereo speakers. Drawing on Sony's high-end audio expertise, renown S-Master digital amplifier technology is utilized to produce more true-to-life sound.

    Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver & NAVTEQ maps

    A built-in GPS receiver7 makes the HDR-PJ580V an ideal choice for travelers. The receiver gives you the ability to view your current location on the LCD map display, as well as "tag" your shooting locations. Tagged videos and still images can be reviewed and played back using the Map Index function on the camcorder or once downloaded to your PC using the supplied PlayMemories Home software9. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone.

    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 HDTV4, 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. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time

    Intelligent Auto (180 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 and wind noise reduction. There are 180 different combinations possible: Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod, Wind Noise Reduction. Thie camcorder utilizes an advanced sound processor and sophisticated noise reduction algorithms to reduce wind noise by up to 10db compared to other models. In addition to reducing low frequency noise, iAuto also suppresses mid- and upper-frequency noise, resulting in clearer, more enjoyable sound.

    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.
