Smarter, simpler

For family fun and a whole lot more

Beyond high technology, Handycam® performance relies on closer attention to human factors. Such as the flexibility to create, shape, share, and discover better ways for images to really move you. Plus, the focus on more carefree yet functional approaches to get to the heart of a subject. The integrity of Sony’s know-how is dedicated to more fun and exciting movie making, from start to finish. This is more than just a new Handycam®, it’s a handier way of providing as much happiness as you can handle—for this generation and those lucky ones to come.

Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode

For steadier images shot on the move

Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode

Shoot steady movie images even while walking or zooming. Advanced image stabilization compensates for camera shake up to 13x more effectively compared to standard mode.

See life in a new light

At the intersection of visionary technology and design, Handycam® image quality reigns supreme. A ZEISS® lens, Exmor R® CMOS image sensor, and BIONZ X™ image processing engine are the essence of picture performance. Zoom coverage as wide as 26.8 mm is expansive, and XAVC S 50 Mbps of high bit rate recording captures scenes of remarkable dynamism in detail.
