Sony HDR-XR520 high definition MiniDV Handy cam camcorder has a newly developed Exmor R CMOS Sensor captures clear images even in low light condition. Flexible Hybrid design includes a huge 240GB HDD that stores up to 101 hours of HD movie footage.

The high-end, HDR- XR520 240GB High Definition Handycam Camcorder, from Sony packs true 1920 x 1080 HD recording, hybrid capture options, excellent optics, and more into a consumer priced camera. You'll be hard pressed to run out of recording space with a 120GB HDD that captures nearly 48 hours of HD footage and the option to store additional video and stills to Memory Stick PRO Duo media. Sony gives you the tools to create beautiful memories, whether you're recording your child's play or a family vacation. The G Lens and back-illuminated 1/2.88" ClearVid Exmor R CMOS sensor work together to create clean, brilliant images. Other features, like the generous 3.2" LCD display, Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization, Face Detection and Smile Shutter give you an added edge. The XR500V also offers a built-in GPS receiver and Map Index function. Mark your exact location on video and still images and organize them accordingly. This tagging function is also useful for online sharing.

The HDR-XR500V gives you more quality than the average HD camcorder with enhanced optics and features, not to mention the convenience of GPS.

Hybrid Recording to HDD or Memory Stick Duo Media

Record nearly 48 hours of true, 1920 x 1080 HD video and 4MP stills to the 120GB HDD, in the XR500V. You can also record to optional Memory Stick PRO Duo media, which offers easy transfer of video and stills to compatible computers and printers. And, in the event that you drop the camera, Sony's "HDD Smart Protection" prevents recorded video and stills from being lost.

1/2.88" ClearVid Exmor R CMOS Sensor with Back-Illumination

Sony's 1/2.88" Exmor R CMOS sensor captures true 1920 x 1080 HD 6MP video and 12.1MP digital stills at 4x the density of HD resolution, giving you cleaner, more detailed images. The back-illuminated sensor improves image quality, especially when shooting in low-light situations by gathering as much light as possible and increasing sensitivity. The BIONZ Image Processor helps reduce noise and provides for faster image processing and data compression.

Sony G Lens

Sony's G lens, designed to work with the Exmor R CMOS sensor, provides sharp, detailed images with ultra accurate color reproduction.

3.2" Wide Touch Panel Xtra Fine LCD

The 3.2" LCD display gives you a generous surface on which to compose and playback your images, even outdoors, thanks to the 1MP of viewing resolution and wide viewing angle. The touch panel provides intuitive menu navigation.

12.1MP Digital Stills

Capture 12.1MP digital stills with the XR500V. You can also simultaneously record video and capture 8.3MP stills with the camera's Dual Record mode.

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization

Sony's Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode provides even more correction for camera shake than Optical SteadyShot alone, by allowing a greater range of motion for lens shift, resulting in superbly clear video and still images.

Built-In GPS Receiver

Great for travelers - the built-in GPS receiver automatically adjusts the XR500V's clock to the correct time zone and lets you view your exact location on the camera's LCD map display. Not only that, but you can also tag your recording location. Tagging allows you to review and playback video and still images by using the Map Index function on you camera or PC using the Picture Motion Browser Software.

Map Index Function

The Map Index uses the geotagging capabilities of the built-in GPS receiver to allow you to see exactly where your footage was captured or to search for and find the scenes by location.
