Sony HDR-CX280E HD 1080p Camcorder, 8.9MP, 27x Optical Zoom, OIS, 2.7” LCD Screen, Black
Whatever you’re up to, with the Sony CX 280 camcorder, you’re ready to film life in smooth, steady Full HD. Fit more into the frame with a wide-angle lens. Get the right settings automatically. Don't even worry about low light thanks to the Exmor R CMOS sensor. Just head out and start to capture more. Along with an 27x optical zoom (50x with digital extension) and optical image stabilisation (OIS), there’s nothing to get in the way of steady, detailed footage.
- Shooting handheld on the move? Optical SteadyShot Active Mode keeps your pictures smooth and steady at all times. Because the lens itself shifts, it irons out bumps and jolts more effectively than digital stabilisation methods. It even works when zooming or in low light.
- From a bustling market to a crowded dancefloor, be sure to fit everything and everyone you want into your shots. With a wide-angle Vario-Tessar lens by Carl Zeiss, you can capture a larger image area without having to stand back – and without compromising detail.
- Bring the world closer without narrowing your field of vision. Take on any shot, from a close-up of faces to a faraway scene, and capture everything in high resolution detail. With a wide-angle lens and up to 32x extended zoom you won’t miss a thing.
- Record and play videos in high quality AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) or MP4 formats. If you want to upload videos and photos online to Facebook, YouTube or PlayMemories choose MP4, and easily share the enjoyment of life’s special moments.
- When you’re filming up close, or shooting action scenes, record high quality images in smooth, sharp detail. It’s all thanks to the 50p progressive shooting mode and its speedy rate of image capture which means you can re-live every detail.
- Take the guesswork out of flawless footage. iAuto automatically adjusts settings for the best results, recognising different faces, lighting and scenes such as landscapes.
- With a Micro HDMI connection, it’s easy to plug the CX220E into a HD ready TV and play back your memories for an audience.
- With Face Detection and Smile Shutter, you can automatically capture still photos of smiling faces while recording video.
