Product Details

Sony DCR-SX63 Silver 16GB Flash Memory Ultra-Compact Camcorder - DCRSX63SIL

Features:

  • 16GB Embedded Memory: 16GB of embedded memory can record and store up to almost 12 hours of video footage (SD LP mode).
  • 60x Optical, 2000x Digital Zoom: Ideal for sporting events, wildlife, or distance shooting, 60X optical zoom brings you closer to the action, so you can capture extremely tight shots, even from far away. In addition, Digital Zoom Interpolation means that extreme digital zooming (up to 2000X) is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms.
  • Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® Lens With SteadyShot™: The DCR-SX83 features a professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses.
  • 2.7” Clear Photo™ LCD3 (230 K) Display: The 2.7” Clear Photo™ LCD3 (230 K) display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.
  • Direct Copy To External HDD Without PC10: Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive10 (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.
  • Face Detection: Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.
  • LED Video Light: The DCR-SX63 includes a small, but powerful LED video light that can assist in low light situations, allowing you to capture video that you might have missed in the past.
  • Power On By Opening LCD Display: Power on your camcorder by simply opening the LCD display.
  • 1/8" Advanced HAD™ CCD Sensor: A 1/8” Advanced HAD™ (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with 410K (effective) pixel resolution delivers stunning detail and clarity for exceptional video (up to 500 lines of horizontal resolution) and still image performance.
  • Dolby® Digital Stereo Recording With Built-in Zoom Mic: The Dolby® Digital stereo recording with built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects with the camera's zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds.
  • Direct Connection To DVDirect® Express DVD Burner (Sold Separately): The DCR-SX63 supports a direct connection to the VRD-P1 DVDirect® Express DVD burner (sold separately), which allows you to burn DVDs directly from your camcorder without the need for a PC. And because the VRD-P1 is powered by your camcorder, you don't need an additional AC power cable.
  • Includes Sony® PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software: Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort, and view your video and still images on your compatible PC. In addition, multiple output options let you burn your memories to DVD (sold separately), as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular video and photo sharing sites9 .
  • Film Roll Index: Like chapters in a book, Film Roll Index helps you easily find desired scenes in video footage. When using this feature, the camcorder previews the beginning of scenes and can create scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes).
  • Face Index Function: Face Index makes it easier than ever to find and play back the right video scene. Using Face Detection technology, Face Index indexes your video footage according to the faces detected in each scene. When it’s time to play back video, simply search for what you want by selecting from among the detected faces displayed in the index.
  • Hybrid Recording To 16GB1 Memory Or Memory Stick PRO Duo™ Media (Sold Separately): Hybrid recording technology delivers a new level of flexibility of capturing and transferring your video footage and digital photos from the camcorder to compatible viewing devices. Record to 16GB1 embedded flash memory or choose instead to record to removable Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media (sold separately). You can even select from various dubbing functions to easily copy video or still images from the embedded flash media to the Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media -- without using a PC.
