    Extraordinary HD Images
    Record your memories in gorgeous 1920 x 1080 high-definition resolution or snap 7-megapixel still images directly to 16GB1 of embedded Flash memory. Outfitted with impressive technologies, the HDR-CX300 features Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization with Active Mode and 3-way Shake Canceling, which lets you capture remarkably smooth video. Plus, the "Exmor R" CMOS sensor delivers superior low-light performance.

    Better Shots in Low Light
    Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with the newly developed, back-illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor. Designed specifically for compact cameras and camcorders, the "Exmor R" CMOS sensor is designed to let you shoot video in lower lighting conditions with better results.

    Say Goodbye to Camera Shake
    Shooting without a tripod can often lead to wobbly videos. 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.

    Superior Optical Performance
    Experience the pinnacle of Sony® lens technology with the professional-quality G Lens. Engineered for superior optical performance, Sony G lenses deliver brilliant, accurate color reproduction and sharp, amazingly detailed images. In addition, a short, 27.4mm focal length offers a broader perspective for enhanced wide angle shooting.

    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.

    Capture Smiling Faces
    Face Detection technology and Smile Shutter™ technology makes shooting smiling faces a cinch. Face Detection with Face Priority lets you assign priority to a face and then automatically optimizes focus, color, exposure and Smile Shutter technology. Smile Shutter captures a smile the moment it happens and takes still photos, even when shooting video.

    Shoot Your Movies in HD
    Capture your memories in 24Mbps and record brilliant AVCHD video with amazing clarity and enhanced detail. The AVCHD2 (Audio Video Compression for HD) codec is ideal for recording on a variety of media including high-definition Blu-ray Disc™.
