Sony High Definition 32 GB Flash Memory Handycam Silver Camcorder - HDRCX350V

Capture stunning 1920 x 1080 high-definition video and 7 megapixel still images with the HDR-CX350V, which employs an "Exmor R" CMOS sensor for superior low-light performance and 32GB1 of embedded flash memory. Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode and 3-way Shake Canceling enables you to capture remarkably smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting.

Features:

  • 1920 x 1080 high definition video recording: : 1920 x 1080 high definition resolution lets you record your memories in exceptional Sony® Full High Definition quality2. Capable of 1080/60p playback via HDMI™ and compatible HDTV4 providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed playback of your memories.
  • 7 Megapixel still image capture w/ Dual Record : 7 Megapixel still image capture lets you take stunning, high resolution digital photos while the Dual record capability lets you capture 3.5 MP still images while shooting high definition video, so you can capture those special moments without having to switch recording modes.
  • 32GB1 Flash memory: : The built-in 32GB1 embedded Flash Memory can record and store up to 13 hours of high definition video footage (HD LP mode), or up to 8 hours of standard definition footage (SD HQ mode).
  • 1/4” "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor: : A 1/4” "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor delivers bright, vivid, spectacularly detailed video footage, as well as 7 Megapixel still images. With 3.5 Megapixel (effective) video resolution, the image sensor captures video at a higher density of high definition resolution resulting in a sharper and more detailed 1920 x 1080 HD picture.
  • Back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor: : Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with the newly developed, back-illuminated "Exmor R" sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the "Exmor R" sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light-gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.
  • Optical SteadyShot™ w/ Active Mode (Wide to Tele) : Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.
  • Wide Angle G-Lens (27.4mm) with 12x Optical zoom : Experience the pinnacle of Sony® lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, a short, 27.4mm focal length offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting in photo mode and 29.8mm in video mode.
  • Quick AF : With the new and improved autofocus (AF) system, Quick AF, the focusing speed is twice as fast compared to previous models. Whether in bright daylight or in dimly lit environment, Quick AF ensures fast, accurate, and consistent focus lock, enabling users to shoot in a wide range of scenes without missing any important moment. Especially when shooting night scenes where conventional AF might struggle to focus, thanks to the much improved AF algorithm in Quick AF, users can now capture crisp images, fast.
  • 1080/60p playback via HDMI™ and compatible HDTV4 : 1080/60p playback via HDMI™ and compatible HDTV4 providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed playback of your memories.
  • Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver & NAVTEQ® maps: : A built-in GPS receiver7 makes the HDR-CX350V an ideal choice for travelers. The receiver gives you the ability to view your current location on the LCD map display, as well as "tag" your shooting locations. Tagged videos and still images can be reviewed and played back using the Map Index function on the camcorder or once downloaded to your PC using the supplied PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software9. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone.
  • Direct Copy to External HDD13 : Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive13 (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 Technology w/ Face Priority : With Face Priority, your camcorder optimizes focus, color, exposure, and Smile Shutter™ technology for the face you prioritize. Just touch the preferred face on the LCD display and the camcorder will assign it priority, even if it leaves and returns to the frame.
  • Smile Shutter™ technology for still and dual capture: : Smile Shutter™ technology lets the camcorder automatically take still photos when your subject smiles, even while shooting high definition video. You can also set the sensitivity and choose child, adult, or auto priority.
  • Intelligent Auto (10 iAuto Modes) : Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes (90 different combinations possible): Portrait Mode, Smile Shutter, Backlight Control, Scenery, Night Scenery Mode, High Sensitivity Mode, Macro Mode, Baby Mode, Walk Detection, Tripod, and Low Light Mode.
  • 12X Optical / 160X Digital Zoom : 12x optical zoom helps to bring the action close up from far away. In addition, Digital Zoom Interpolation means that digital zooming (up to 160X) is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zoom.
  • Golf Shot : Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 22 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite “sequence shot” image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.
  • Up to 24Mbps AVCHD video2 : The HDR-CX350V can capture video at up to 24Mbps for amazing clarity and detail, ideal for recording on to Blu-ray® media since the AVCHD codec is highly compatible with the Blu-ray format.2
  • 2.7” Clear Photo™ LCD (230 K) display3 : The 2.7” Clear Photo™ LCD (230 K) display3 renders sharp, bright images at a high 230k pixels resolution, letting you compose and share video and still images more easily – even outdoors.
  • Power On by opening LCD display: : Power on your camcorder by simply opening the LCD display.
  • Personalized "My Menu" System : New user friendly interface uses touch screen technology to allow users to scroll through menus quickly and easily and even create a personalized “My Menu” to bring together the functions they use most. Users can spend more time recording memories and less time in menus.
  • Easy Playback Options : Four, easy to use Playback indexing formats allow users to easily find and playback scenes at any time Film Roll Index - scene indexes at specified display intervals, Face Index uses Face Detection technology to organize your video footage based on the faces detected in each scene, Map Index uses the GPS to easily find a desired scene based on location, and Date Indexing organizes scenes based on the time and date they were recorded.
  • 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.
  • Highlight Playback: : Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback uses several criteria - including Face Index, Smile Shutter™ technology, Dual Capture and time range - to identify and compile key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions.
  • Hybrid Recording to 32GB1 internal memory or Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media: : 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 32GB1 embedded flash memory or choose instead to record to removable Memory Stick PRO Duo™/SD media (sold separately).
    Dual Record with 3.5MP still image capture: : Dual record capability lets you capture 3.5MP still images while shooting high definition video, so you can capture those special moments without having to switch recording modes.
  • 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, AVCHD, and Blu-ray Disc™ media (sold separately), as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular video and photo sharing sites (compatible PC and internet connection required) 9.
  • Smooth Slow Record: : The Smooth Slow Record mode increases the record rate from 60 frames per second (fps) to 240 fps, allowing you to capture 3 seconds of fast motion and play the video back in 12 seconds.
  • x.v. Color™ technology for superior color: : x.v. Color™ technology enables the HDR-CX350V to capture nearly twice (1.8x) as many viewable colors as the standard RGB color range, resulting in more natural, life-like images.
  • BIONZ™ Image Processor: : The BIONZ™ Image Processor works in conjunction with the "Exmor R" CMOS image sensor with ClearVid™ array technology for pristine imaging. The BIONZ image processor provides Data Noise Reduction, Faster Image processing, and Data compression to preserve videos and images. In addition, the BIONZ™ image processor enables Face Detection technology and Sony’s Dynamic Range Optimizer for both video and still image capture. The higher processing speed also allows Dual Recording to capture still images while recording video.
  • Record and zoom controls on LCD: : The HDR-CX350V features an additional set of record and zoom buttons on the LCD screen, give you more control and flexibility when holding the camcorder, especially in overhead or low angle shots.
  • BRAVIA® Sync™ technology: : BRAVIA® Sync™ technology5 offers greater ease of use in controlling compatible Sony products connected via an HDMI™ (CEC) connection5. HDMI connectivity provides a simple; high-quality video and audio connection, with the ability to transmit HD video and up to 5.1 channel audio directly from the camcorder to compatible HDTVs via a single HDMI cable, sold separately. With BRAVIA Sync (CEC) technology, the HDMI connection also delivers the ability to control both the camcorder and HDTV using a single BRAVIA® TV remote5 and displays the camcorder’s playback menu on screen for easier navigation.
  • Dynamic Range Optimizer: : The D-Range (Dynamic Range) Optimizer function adjusts the exposure and contrast of an image to counter the effects of high-contrast shooting condition, allowing you to get a great shot. The D-Range Optimizer suppresses “blackout” in dark areas such as shadows and “whiteout” in bright areas such as skies. As a result, the captured image appears as natural as the original scene.
  • Active Interface Shoe: : The Active Interface Shoe lets you mount Intelligent Accessories, such as external lights and microphones, which can help extend the capabilities of your camcorder.
  • Built-in Intelligent Flash: : For added clarity and detail when taking pictures in low-light situations, the built-in flash improves pictures and reduces shadows.
  • Auto Lens Cover: : An Auto Lens Cover protects the lens when the camcorder is powered off.
  • HDMI™ connection: : The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as a compatible camcorder, Blu-ray Disc™ player, a personal computer, a video game console, or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV).
  • Media Card Slot : For convenient storage and sharing of your images and videos, the camera accepts Memory Stick Duo™ / Memory Stick PRO Duo™ / Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo™ media (sold separately) and SD/SDHC media.
  • USB 2.0 interface: : A USB 2.0 interface provides an easy way to connect your camcorder to a compatible PC for fast transfer of video and still images for editing.

This camera is an important upgrade in image quality and features. I replaced a Sony HDR-CX100 by this camcorder and the upgrade is noticeable. First, the LCD screen is much more detailed and brighter, and that was something I missed when I compared the CX100 with the Canon VIXIA's, specially when I film in the sunlight. Second, the light sensitivity is simple AMAZING. With very low light this camcorder is capable to obtain beautiful and grain less HD movies. I guess this is because the new backlight XMOR sensor and of course the Sony G lens. Third, the stabilizer effect is something that I have never seen in any other camcorders: you can walk filming without any undesirable shake or vibration in the filming movie. Also if you film in a car or in a sportboat the steady shot feature in this camera is simple incredible. This helps you a lot not just for filming but also to take photos using the zoom in low light conditions. Fourth, the wide angle lens is a very nice feature that allows you to capture more wide scenes and is very useful when you don't have to much space to film. Fifth, this camcorder power up in a very short time and open and close the lens protector automatically, so you can't miss any good shots opportunities. This is what I can tell you about the most important features for me. I guess I will use this camcorder for a long time not just for filming but also to take photographs. The camera integrates well with Mac OSX and you can download all the photos, movies and use the Mac software like Iphoto, Imovie, IDvd. The Sony software does not run in a Mac OSX enviroment but it is not necessary because you can use all the nice Mac software included in the OSX.

For photos, there is a high level of color noise (even in well lit indoor conditions) despite the EXMOR technology for low lighting conditions. Also, there is a high level of purple fringing in photos even without a Clear/UV/Haze filter. I have given up on this unit as a photo/video all-in-one and use only the HD Video feature.

Great Compact Camcorder

By EngineDriver

from Modesto, Ca

Comments about Sony High Definition 32 GB Flash Memory Handycam Silver Camcorder:

Purchased from the Sony Style store with a great price match from a leading online retailer. At current $649 price it is worth the money, but still more expensive than Canon Vixia 31. Still chose it over the Canon for the following reasons, despite the better recording options and features available on the Canon. Compared to Vixia 31, the Sony felt better made, more solid and compact. The controls responded better, the touch screen was more responsive and easier to navigate. This made up for lack of more manual control features and the mic input available on the Canon. Believe it or not the Sony includes most features you need anyway and the Hot Shoe makes adding a video light or mic a breeze. The Sony accessories are lower priced than comparable Canon accessories. This makes up for this initial price disparity between them. The image stabilization works well, the zoom is smooth and the wide angle G lens is definitely more distinguishable than I thought it would be. I use a Mac with iMovie and Final Cut Express. I had no problems importing video. Be sure to disable the stabilization feature in iMovie, I believe this may have caused a glitch in some video that I imported. I have yet to use the direct copy feature, which I plan on using with an external hard drive. I have ordered the usb adapter for this function, as well as the VCT-60AV Tripod and HVL-HL1 Video Light form BH Photo which has excellent prices on Sony products. I will update my review findings when I have a chance to use them. Compare the whole package to a similar Canon package and you will find that there isn't much difference if you are concerned about the price of this camcorder and the available accessories.

    Great HD Camera

    By NOMAD

    from Cozumel, MX

    Comments about Sony High Definition 32 GB Flash Memory Handycam Silver Camcorder:

    Was looking to upgrade to something with good stabilization and picture quality, this camera exceeded my expectations. I do lots of under water videography and the image stabilization is incredible. Not to mention the excellent video quality of the HD, this camera really captures all the vibrant colors in the caribbean oceans. Recently recorded the 2010 IronMan race with great results, didn't even need a tripod like I did before. Allowed me to really move around easily and get some really good angles that I couldn't have gotten clearly with an older cam or with a tripod.

      Poor Photos/Snapshots, MAC community NOT supported

      from Houston, TX

      Comments about Sony High Definition 32 GB Flash Memory Handycam Silver Camcorder:

      For photos, there is a high level of color noise (even in well lit indoor conditions) despite the EXMOR technology for low lighting conditions. Also, there is a high level of purple fringing in photos even without a Clear/UV/Haze filter. I have given up on this unit as a photo/video all-in-one and use only the HD Video feature. Regarding HD Video, I have not been able to set it at 1080P x 1920 resolution. All .m2ts video formats I get are 1080x1440. You need the supplied "Picture Motion Browser" software (for Windows only) to download video files, simply copying files using USB will not work well. Deleting video files using USB will corrupt the system and you will need to reset. Video files must only be deleted directly on the camcorder. The PMB software is not available for the MAC community unfortunately. (SONY, please correct me if I am wrong in any of the items above). Overall, a real disappointment on still photos (even my old Sony P8 and W1 took better photos), Videos good but I was expecting full 1080p x1920 as the Webpage says.

          This Camera is so good and overall excellent in every way but I had trouble with when comes to holding the camera for long periods of time ( 3 to 4 hrs) leaving you wishing for a better way of holding the camera . Another issue is you must buy an extra battery if you don't want to miss any action with the family events or sports adventure I recommend you get an extra battery . Sony please make your software Mac Friendly , don't get me wrong it works but it takes time to figure it out , must imovie to import your videos and still pictures.

            I use mine to record at horse shows. When used in typical outdoor lighting, the camera captures stunningly beautiful images. Indoor arenas pose a challenge. As long as you zoom in on the subject matter, the image quality is good. Zoom out and the images become very dark (really depends on just how good the ambient lighting is). I'm sure that I can work around this as I get used to the camera. I dump my recordings into my Imac via Imovie, which handles the file transfer smoothly. I also use a Sony MC6 Direct DV recorder via an Ilink cable which is a fast and simple way to burn HD DVDs. On a scale of 10, I rate the camera a 9.

              The low light feature works great. I love it. Easy to use, easy menu, but more importantly, (and I'm not sure what that other person was talking about), it works great with my 2010 MacBook Pro!

                Not everyone uses iMovie on a Mac! I use Final Cut Pro 7 (FCP) and the Log and Transfer function to an iMac works great. But first, just save the files from the internal memory or external card to your hard drive and even backup these highly compressed source files to DVDs. Then use Log and Transfer to pull out the clips you want and go edit in Final Cut. I leave the source files in separately named folders and Log and T can find these from within FCP. Hey, from the 32 GB of source files you expand this to huge files, but you can keep going back to the compressed source as needed and delete the expanded files when done editing. The shocker is going from SD (where an hour of footage is 12GB) to the lower HD format (where an hour of footage is like 50GB). The difference is worth it!
