Web Pricing - Why are the prices on this web site different from those in your stores?
Our stores are staffed with a wide variety of product specialists and support staff, each of whom make an effort to be responsive and pleasant to deal with. We're also able to provide a customer with any item from our inventory to inspect and test. The cost of this customer service is an increased overhead for our in-store prices, to pay for the store space, the training of our employees, and other considerations not present online. We're happy to offer reduced prices online and hope that you will be satisfied with your purchase no matter where you decide to buy.
Tell a better story with Sony Full HD/60p and image stabilization. Control, transfer and backup everything via Wi-Fi with NFC in just a touch and get even closer to the action with a 30x zoom, wide-angle Sony G lens. The Sony HDR-CX330 Full HD Handycam Camcorder is the camera that's ready when you are. Precious moments become even more special the second time around when recorded in exquisitely rich 1920 x1080/60p Full HD video. And now thanks to Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, you can capture every minute of birthday parties, campfire sing-alongs, or anyother situation where lighting is less than perfect in vivid clarity and lifelike detail. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? You can shoot 9.2MP still images and video at the same time so you won't miss an ounce of the action.
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode is an advanced optical image stabilization technology that corrects camera shake to capture scenes with phenomenal smoothness and stability. Intelligent Active Mode analyzes video frames and provides compensation with assistance from the new BIONZ X image processing engine. Whether recording movies while strolling on vacation, shooting while chasing a child, or zooming in to capture faraway subjects, Optical Steady Shot smoothly reproduces the scene with a higher level of stability. Turn your mobile phone, tablet or other compatible device into a remote control and viewing device via built-in Wi-Fi/NFC. With a simple touch you can transfer your files to your mobile device wirelessly for instant sharing, back up your data on your PC and even enjoy your videos and photos on a TV without wires, cables or hassles.
Fit more fun into every shot thanks to the pinnacle of Sony lens technology: the professional-quality G lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, 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. The 2.7" (16:9) Clear Photo LCD (230K) screen displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily even outdoors, while giving you the ability to change settings to best capture the scene.
1080/60p and 9.2MP Still Images: Create high definition 1920 x 1080 60p videos and take high quality 9.2MP still images. Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for compact cameras and camcorders. The sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, which maximizes the light gathering area per pixel and achieves better results in low light conditions.
NFC / Wi-Fi Control, Transfer, & Data Backup: Built-in NFC and Wi-Fi lets you turn your mobile phone and/or tablet into a remote control/viewing device. You can also transfer your files to your mobile device wirelessly for instant sharing, back up your data on your PC, and even enjoy your videos and photos on a TV without wires. Please note: NFC feature requires NFC-compatible mobile device.
SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode: Compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.
Wide Angle Sony G Lens: The lens has a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm at the wide end of the focal range. Shoot distant subjects with a 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.
2.7" Clear Photo LCD Display: The 2.7" (16:9) Clear Photo LCD features 230K dot resolution for sharp, bright, vivid images, enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.
Face Detection with Voice Enhancement and Noise Reduction: Sony's Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly exposed images. It can even automatically distinguish between children and adult faces.
Built-in USB 2.0 Cable: The built-in high-speed USB 2.0 cable provides an easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer, without the need for a separate cable. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.
7 Picture Effects for Video and Still Photos: Use Picture Effects to add expression and heighten the mood of your videos and photos. Seven picture effects (Toy Camera, Pop Color, Soft High Key, Partial Color, Retro Photo, High Contrast Monochrome, and Posterization) are available in both photo and video modes. Shooting with these special modes will provide you an easy way to instantly transform your memories without any post editing software needed.
AVCHD and MP4 Dual Recording: Record video in the AVCHD and MP4 formats for high-quality or easy transfer and sharing. For the greatest flexibility, you can even record AVCHD and MP4 formats simultaneously. 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.
Intelligent Auto Mode: 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 60 different combinations possible: Portrait, Baby, Tripod, Backlight, Landscape, Spotlight, Twilight, Macro, and Low light.
