Product Features in Detail
90x Intelligent / 50x Optical Zoom
More dynamic and emotional memories
Easily capture distant objects that are too far away to shoot with conventional zoom functions – thanks to 90x Intelligent Zoom. You can also use the 50x Optical Zoom to zoom in on your subject to add more emotion and dynamics to your homemade footage.
Get group shots with ease
Fit more people and more of the background into the frame – the 28mm Wide-Angle function (35mm camera equivalent) makes it possible. This is especially handy when you want to take a group shot in a small room. It fits objects in even when you shoot from up close, and makes it possible to pick up even small sounds with the camcorder's built-in microphone.

Twin Camera Function
Add a unique touch to your footage
This model includes a rotatable sub camera that lets you take shots from two angles at once. For example, you can capture the family and a selfie, or both tele and wide-angle shots. A Backup function records a picture in picture image and a main camera image without a sub window for backup. The sub camera image is recorded into any one of various sub windows, and its display position can be changed by touch operation.
Wireless Multi Camera
Add extra emotion to your footage
Enjoy a new kind of shooting style that lets you add even more emotion to your movies. Using Wi-Fi, you can link to as many as three smartphones and simultaneously record up to two of them as sub-windows. These sub-window images can be interchanged, and their display positions can be switched. This lets you shoot from a variety of angles and viewpoints, to capture a higher level of emotional impact.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) Movie
Get clear shots with excellent detail
Enjoy crisper, clearer videos thanks to the HDR Movie function. It combines two images taken with different exposures to suppress blown highlights and blocked shadows. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily capture natural videos with excellent gradation. A dedicated HDR button enables quick mode changes when necessary.
Level Footage at All Times
So you can film carefree, the Level Shot function automatically detects and corrects the tilting of images. The setting can be adjusted to one of three levels – OFF, Normal or Strong – for the shooting condition.
Clear, Blurless Results
HYBRID O.I.S.+ uses five-axis correction to thoroughly suppress blurring caused by unwanted shake – whether you are shooting with a wide angle or at high zoom. This lets you capture crisp, clear images in virtually every shooting situation.
