    Take Amazing Videos
    Boasting a professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens and powerful 60x optical zoom, the ultra-compact DCR-SX44 Handycam® camcorder captures extremely tight shots, even from far away. There's also a convenient built-in LED video light which makes it easier to capture the moment in low-light situations.

    Capture Natural Looking Faces
    It's never been easier to capture faces thanks to integrated Face Detection technology. Face Detection recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.

    Easily Compose and View Your Shots
    Boasting a 2.7" (16:9)3 touch panel display with excellent viewing clarity and improved resolution (230K pixels), it a breeze to frame your shots. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel also allows easy access to menus.

    Store and Share Your Memories
    Now there's an easy way to transfer and store videos directly from your camcorder to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), without a computer. You can even use handy playback features of this camcorder to access the videos stored on your external drive and share your memories on a compatible HDTV or monitor.

    Get Closer to Your Subjects
    Ideal for sporting events, wildlife, or distance shooting, a Carl Zeiss® 60X optical zoom brings you closer to the action, so you can capture extremely tight shots, even from far away. In addition, Digital Zoom Interpolation means that extreme digital zooming (up to 2000X) is clearer, with less distortion.

    Edit and Share Your Footage
    Use the supplied Sony Picture Motion Browser (PMB) software to easily transfer, sort and view your videos and still images on your compatible PC. There are also multiple output options which let you burn your memories to DVD (sold separately), as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular sharing sites.

    Low Light, No Problem
    Thanks to an integrated LED video light, you can shed some light on your subject and record clear, colorful videos and pictures even in low light situations.
