Outsmart your smartphone when it comes to video quality and clarity with the Sony HDR-CX290 HD Handycam Camcorder. Create beautiful 1920 x 1080 60p Full HD movies and great 8.9MP photos to share with friends and family or post to Facebook. Your footage will be stunningly smooth thanks to Optical SteadyShot image stabilization, which compensates for camera shake to cut down on blur.

Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers stunning low-light performance with drastically reduced grain for crisp, clear photos and videos. 27x optical zoom plus 50x Extended Zoom lets you get near the action for incredible close-ups. And with 8GB1 of built-in flash memory, you can record up to 3 hours and 10 minutes of HD video footage (HD LP mode).

Features:
  • 1920x1080 Full HD 24p/60p w/8.9MP Exmor R CMOS Sensor - Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 24p/60p and high quality 8.9MP still images. 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.
  • Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/ Active Mode - 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Up to 3hr 10min recording with 8GB1 embedded Flash Memory - The built-in 8GB1 embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 3 hours 10 minutes of high definition video footage (HD LP mode).
  • 2.7 In. wide Clear Photo LCD (230k) - The 2.7 In. (16:9) Clear Photo LCD (230K) 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.
  • 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.
  • Intelligent Auto (90 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 . There are 90 different combinations possible: Portrait, Baby, Walk, Tripod, Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro annd Low light.
  • 50x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action - Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 27x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.
  • 29.8mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens - The professional-quality 29.8mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens is designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses, and SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake.
