Autofocus with extra-precise Fast Intelligent AF. Capture a range of stunning results using a 4K-compatible optical 20x zoom ZEISS Vario-Sonnar T* lens with 26.8mm widest angle. With a 4K Handycam® at hand, the most moving memories really come alive.


4K image quality
Shoot 4K footage that contains about four times more detail than Full HD (3840 x 2160 pixels vs. 1920 x 1080) footage, and capture more of the incredible qualities that bring images to vibrant life.

New image sensor exclusively for 4K
A newly developed image sensor, with pixels of approximately 1.6 times bigger size, offers superior sensitivity for capturing beautiful high-quality images with less noise under dark as well as bright shooting conditions.

Up to 26.8mm wide angle lens
Whether you’re shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide-angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes and indoor scenes, when you don’t have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, the camcorder shoots as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™
Advanced image stabilisation suppresses camera shake to stabilise a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range. In HD shooting mode, it further reduces effects of camera shake even under unstable conditions with 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensating for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running.

Extensive zoom shooting capabilities
20x optical zoom lens and Clear Image Zoom of 30x/40x (for 4K/HD) allow you to shoot faraway subjects and capture memorable moments.

New ZEISS™ Vario-Sonnar T* lens for 4K
This new lens helps to depict remarkable details of high-quality 4K images throughout its wide-angle-to-telephoto range. The use of an AA (advanced aspherical) lens not only keeps depiction faithful — it also keeps the lens unit compact. ED (Extra-low Dispersion) lens helps to ensure accurate reproduction of colour. Multilayer ZEISS T* Coating further enhances image quality by reducing unwanted reflection, such as ghost and flare.

Rapid AF response to capture decisive moments
Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimising lens motion, predicting the AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

Realistic recording of voices, music and other sound
Its new structural design enables the microphone to gather, from five directions, clearer sound with approx. 40% less noise and twice as effective 2ch stereo (for XAVC S shooting) and three times as effective16 5.1ch surround (for AVCHD shooting) sound performance. This makes it possible to faithfully reproduce audio with clearly defined separation.

High Speed REC in Full HD for high-quality slow motion
Shoot in Full HD at 100fps (NTSC/PAL), edit the footage after shooting, and the resulting slow-motion images of the movie will look startlingly smooth and sharp in playback. This is excellent for reviewing, in greater slow-motion detail, sports and everyday action that can occur too quickly in real time for you to see clearly.
