The HDR-CX900E features a large Exmor R CMOS sensor with a light-receiving area that is approximately 4.9 times larger than 1/2.88 type image sensor. This newly employed sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise even when shooting in dark environments, and enables image expression that takes full advantage of background defocusing. No.1 image sensor manufacturer for digital cameras and video recorders. Based on Sony research-April 2012 to March 2013 (50% market share)

Advanced BIONZ X image processing engine for higher speed and peerless quality

The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine features higher technology than in the previous generation of BIONZ to achieve more faithful reproduction, more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality, and higher resolution capabilities. This Handycam model is equipped with several new features that take advantage of the higher speed processing capabilities. These include By Pixel Super Resolution, Motion Shot Video, Optical SteadyShot and Dual Video Recording.

Support for HD high bit-rate

XAVC S is the format for recording 4K/HD movies, which was developed for consumer usage based on the professional XAVC 4K/HD format. It supports HD 50Mbps so that consumers can record high-resolution movies even in a fast-moving shot. * The use of MP4 playback devices and software does not guarantee that data can be played back in all modes.

High-frame-rate shooting at 120p* and HD resolution

The HDR-CX900E supports high-frame-rate shooting at HD image quality (1280 x 720 pixels). Its ability to record at 120p enables slow-motion playback at one-fifth the speed in a 24p environment when post-processing is applied. This capability opens the door to various uses, such as checking the form of rapidly moving athletes. Only available when recording movies in the XAVC S format.

Lens Ring

The lens ring enables smooth, natural adjustment of focusing or zooming depending on which mode you select via convenient button.

Manual Dial

The manual dial on the side of the body allows swift and easy adjustment of the iris, gain (ISO) and shutter speed.

TRILUMINOS Color. A breathtaking way to relive your fondest memories.

The HDR-CX900E supports Sony's "TRILUMINOS Color," allowing you to view photos and movies in rich, natural colors on any TV equipped with a "TRILUMINOS Display." The expanded color gamut lets you immerse yourself once again in those unforgettably colorful moments, from the complex shades in a shimmering blue sky to the natural tones of a rosy complexion.

Built-in ND Filters

A choice of selectable Clear, 1/4 filter, 1/16 filter or 1/64 ND (Neutral Density) filters adjusts light levels entering the lens. This gives video-makers the freedom to precisely control shutter speed and aperture for greater creative possibilities. In conjunction with the camcorder's large image sensor, it allows creation of beautifully smooth 'bokeh' background defocus effects without increasing shutter speed even if you're shooting outdoors in sunny conditions.

One-touch remote and one-touch sharing

One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and one-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

Simultaneously record maximum-quality movies and ready-to-share MP4 movies

Record two movies at the same time?one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in the MP4 format. *The XAVC S format is available in the FDR-AX100 and HDR-CX900E. The FDR-AX100 can record 4K movies in the XAVC S format.

My Voice Cancelling

This convenient new feature significantly reduces the intensity of your voice as you shoot, while maintaining the volume of your subject's voice and other sounds in your surroundings.
