Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor® R CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor® R CMOS 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. 

Built-in High-Contrast Projector with External Input 
Enjoy your favorite memories virtually anywhere with the high-contrast 35 lumen projector built-in to the LCD panel. The HDMI multi-terminal allows you to connect external devices that have an HDMI output (smartphones, laptops, tablets, etc.) and use the camcorders projector to enjoy more of your memories than what you capture on the camcorder itself. This puts a new and fun spin on family movie night, game day and adds convenience to the traveling professional who can project presentations on the fly. Combined with advanced Clear Phase stereo speakers, you can enjoy a true cinematic experience with your camcorder. 

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization w/ Active Mode
On standard SteadyShot camcorders a single “shift lens” is moved in the optical block to offset camera shake. Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ w/ Active Mode moves the entire optical block at once, maintaining the integrity of the optical path and improving shake reduction by up to 13X. It also reduces vignetting (light falloff towards the edge of a scene) and lowers distortion in videos and still photos. 

Up to 11hr 40min recording with 32GBembedded Flash Memory
The built-in 32GB embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 11 hours 40 minutes of high definition video footage (HD LP mode). 

Manual Control (Iris/Shutter/Exposure/White Balance)
Get the most out of your camcorder with enhanced manual controls. The assignable dial allows for control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris, and shutter speed. 

5.1ch Surround mic for vivid and dynamic surround sound.
Dolby® Digital 5.1 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording. 

Attach an array of accessories via Multi-Interface shoe
Sony’s Multi-Interface shoe is specifically designed to offer a common interface across all of Sony’s Digital Imaging products. Quickly and easily attach a vast array of accessories compatible with this interface, including optional video lights, microphones and  even Sony’s new Wi-Fi module, and dramatically increase the quality of your videos. 

Wireless control, transfer, data backup via Wi-Fi®
Handycam® camcorders with Multi-Interface shoe are compatible with a myriad of powerful accessories, including Sony’s new optional Wi-Fi adapter ADP-WL1M1. Turn compatible smartphones and tablets into a remote control for your camcorder (remote functions include zoom, REC start/stop, and changing recording modes).  Instantly share your videos and photos online using your smartphone or tablet.  Conveniently backup all your videos and photos on your PC without any wires. 

Shoot high quality AVCHD or web optimized MP4 video
Select between HD video in the AVCHD or MP4 format for highest quality or easy transfer and sharing.AVCHD provides premium video that can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs, and is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime. MP4 is great for those moments that you want to quickly share on your social networks or store on the cloud. MP4 produces smaller files optimized for web viewing and makes wireless transfer a breeze (on select Handycam camcorder’s with Wi-Fi feature and optional accessory ADP-WL1M). 

Wide Angle G lens to capture more of what you want
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, the 26.8mm focal length in Photo and Video Modes offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting. 

New Advanced Sound System for Premium Audio 
Premium video demands premium audio. This is why Sony has enhanced the sound system in select Handycam® camcorders. A wider dynamic range allows for clearer and cleaner sound recording when shooting in areas with either too much background noise or where the audio level is too low. Additionally, manual audio level adjustment allows users to fine tune sound recordings. These improvements add on to existing features of Wind Noise Reduction and Closer Voice technology that work with the camcorder’s built in face-detection technology to automatically reduces background noise. 

CinemaTone presets and 24p recording for cinematic quality video 
For extra control over image expression, CinemaTone technology is used to deepen the color and recreate film-like color tones. Combined with 24p recording, you’ll have some of the tools you need to fulfill your need for cinematic expression. 

Advanced controls with expanded focus, zebra, and peaking
The HDR-PJ650V provides advanced capture and control features that are often considered the domain of professional cameras including expanded focus for precise manual focus control, zebra and peaking for precision focus and exposure adjustments. 

20x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action
Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 12x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality. 

3.0” touch-screen Xtra Fine LCD™ display (921K)
The 3.0” (16:9) Xtra Fine LCD™ screen (921K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene. The LCD brings remarkably higher contrast delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare. 

Color EVF (0.27” 201K) crisp clear video monitoring
A color EVF (electronic view finder) provides clear crisp representation of your video allowing for proper framing, battery conservation, and increased stability. 

Tracking Focus follows selected subjects in/out of the frame
Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns. 

Wind noise reduction for clear voice recording
Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience. 

Closer Voice (with Face Detection)
When the camcorder’s Face Detection technology identifies people in a scene, an Advanced Acoustic Processor automatically reduces background noise, resulting in recorded voices with outstanding clarity and intelligibility. 

Wind noise reduction for clear voice recording
Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience. 

Expanded recording/monitoring with mic/headphone jack
Features dedicated mic and headphone inputs for expanded audio recording options and convenient monitoring of audio with headphones (external microphones and headphones sold separately). 

Highlight Playback creates movies with transitions for you
Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel. 

Clear Phase stereo speakers for true and dynamic sound
Bring your video alive with Clear Phase stereo speakers. Drawing on Sony’s high-end audio expertise, renown S-Master™ digital amplifier technology is utilized to produce more true-to-life sound. 

Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver & NAVTEQ® maps
A built-in GPS receiver makes the HDR-PJ650V Geotagging with built-in GPS receiver & NAVTEQ® maps 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 PlayMemories Home software. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone 

Direct Copy to external HDD without PC
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive(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. 

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.

Intelligent Auto (180 different scene combinations possible)
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 and wind noise reduction. There are 180 different combinations possible: Portrait, Baby, Walk, Tripod , Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro, Low light, Auto Wind Noise Reduction. The camcorder utilizes an advanced sound processor and sophisticated noise reduction algorithms to reduce wind noise by up to 10db compared to other models. In addition to reducing low frequency noise, iAuto also suppresses mid- and upper-frequency noise, resulting in clearer, more enjoyable sound. 

Record sequential still photos with 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. 

Built-in Flash
The built-in flash will assist in shedding light on your subject when shooting still photos.
