You can also connect with a compatible remote control via Multi Terminal.
BIONZ X Processor enables high Speed rec 120fps - The new BIONZ X image processor enables the camcorder to create more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality, and higher resolution imagery. This new image processing technology achieves an even better balance of exceptional detail and advanced noise control. Its ability to record at 120p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24p environment in post-processing. Notable features of BIONZ X technology include: - Detail reproduction technology optimally filters edges and textures differently depending on the scene. Area specific noise reduction swiftly and efficiently analyzes the subject and reduces noise
Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization w/ Active Mode - Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode is an advanced optical 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.
