Back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS sensor

Experience the stunning low-light sensitivity of the Sony HDR-CX350V HD digital video camera with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with the newly developed, back-illuminated “Exmor R” sensor.

 

Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the “Exmor R” sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.

 

 

Optical SteadyShot w/ Active Mode (Wide to Tele)

Tagged videos and still images can be reviewed and played back using the Map Index function on the camcorder or once downloaded to your PC using the supplied PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software.

 

Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder’s clock to the proper time zone.

Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), all without a computer.

 

Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your HDTV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

 

Face Detection Technology With Face Touch

With Face Touch, your camcorder optimizes focus, color, exposure, and Smile Shutter technology for the face you prioritize.

 

Just touch the preferred face on the LCD display and the camcorder will assign it priority, even if it leaves and returns to the frame.

 

 

Intelligent Night Scenery ModeIntelligent Landscape Mode

 

 

Intelligent Auto Mode

Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from eleven distinct scene modes: Portrait Mode, Smile Shutter, Backlight Control, Scenery, Night Scenery Mode, High Sensitivity Mode, Macro Mode, Baby Mode, Walk Detection, Tripod, and Low Light Mode.

 

Active Interface Shoe

The Active Interface Shoe lets you mount Intelligent Accessories, such as external lights and microphones, which can help extend the capabilities of your camcorder.

 

Dolby Digital stereo recording with Built-in Zoom Mic

The Dolby Digital stereo recording with built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects with the camera’s zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds.

Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software

Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort, and view your video and still images on your compatible PC.

In addition, multiple output options let you burn your memories to DVD, AVCHD, and Blu-ray Disc media (sold separately), as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular video and photo sharing sites (compatible PC and internet connection required).

 

 

Smooth Slow Record

The Smooth Slow Record mode increases the record rate from 60 frames per second (fps) to 240 fps, allowing you to capture 3 seconds of fast motion and play the video back in 12 seconds.

 

This is a great tool for analyzing a golf swing or a viewing a bird in flight. In addition, you record an audio track to narrate the video footage.

 

 

Dynamic Range Optimizer

The D-Range (Dynamic Range) Optimizer function adjusts the exposure and contrast of an image to counter the effects of high-contrast shooting condition, allowing for a great shot.

 

The D-Range Optimizer suppresses “blackout” in dark areas such as shadows and “whiteout” in bright areas such as skies. As a result, the captured image appears as natural as the original scene.

 

 

Dual Record with 3.5MP still image capture.

What is Dual Record with still image capture?

Dual record capability lets you capture 3.5MP still images while shooting high definition video, so you can capture those special moments without having to switch recording modes.

 

Golf Shot

 

Building on the slow-motion capture capabilities of Smooth Slow Record, Golf Shot captures a few seconds of motion as a sequence of up to 17 still images, which can be viewed/printed individually or as a composite “sequence shot” image, perfect for analyzing the nuances of a golf swing, tennis serve, and other fast action.

 

Up to 24Mbps AVCHD video

The Sony HDR-CX350V can capture video at up to 24Mbps for amazing clarity and detail, ideal for recording on to Blu-ray media since the AVCHD codec is highly compatible with the Blu-ray format.
