Full Details

4K Image Quality

Shoot 4K that contains about four times more detail than Full HD.

New Sensor Exclusively for 4K

A newly developed lens and image sensor enhance the spectacular definition of 4K resolution3, with particular sensitivity for capturing high-quality movies in low light.

New ZEISS™ 20x zoom 4K lens

This new lens helps to depict remarkable details of high-quality 4K images throughout its wide-angle-to-telephoto range. The use of an AA (advanced Aspherical) lens not only keeps depiction faithful - it also keeps the lens unit compact. ED (extra-low dispersion) lens helps to ensure accurate reproduction of colour. Multilayer Zeiss T* coating further enhances image quality by reducing unwanted reflection, such as ghost and flare.

Super Wide Angle Lens

ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 26.8mm widest angle allows more of a subject to fit in frame.

New Exmor R™ CMOS sensor for 4K

Bigger pixel size improves sensitivity for shooting movies with less noise, even in darkness.

Super-sampled Full HD Playback

4K movies automatically down-convert to Full HD to play on an HD TV.

Trimming Playback

Trace a finger on the LCD to trim frame of 4K movie playing on TV in Full HD.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot

For extra-stable movie shooting from wide to telephoto. In HD shooting mode, 5-axis Intelligent Active mode further compensates for camera shake, even when shooting while running.

Sony’s Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ is a unique stabiliser, with a gimbal mechanism about 13 times more effective than other optical systems. Capture smooth, professional-looking images, even at full zoom or while running, with no need for bulky external gimbals.

Unlike conventional optical image stabilisation using a single lens element, Sony’s Balanced Optical SteadyShot manipulates the entire lens unit and image sensor together — effective for even high zoom and strong camera shake correction.

Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly

A new AF algorithm optimises communication between lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, and a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system keeps the subject in sharp focus.

See times change with 4K time-lapse movies

With Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between each shot and edit the sequence into a high-quality 4K time-lapse movie.

Record Time Code and User Bit data

These functions are indispensable for advanced editing. Optional remote commanders can make editing more convenient, as well.

Our Verdict

Capture amazing quality video with exceptional details in ultra-HD 4K resolution. Featuring a range of features seen in pro video gear, such as manual settings and an electronic viewfinder for ultimate quality and control. Despite this, the camcorder remains user friendly and easy to handle.
