About the Sony HDR-CX210

The SonyHDR-CX210 High Definition Handycam Camcorder (Blue) shoots Full HD 1920 x 1080/60p video and can capture 5.3 megapixel still images as well. It features 8GB of embedded flash memory, which provides up to three hours of recording. The camcorder is equipped with a back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor that's ideal for low-light situations.

The microphone features 5.1 channel surround sound for dynamic and vivid surround audio. The camcorder also has Intelligent Auto, which supports 60 different scene combinations.

Sony added a few playback and connection conveniences as well. The HDR-CX210 features Event Browse, which groups video and stills by each particular recording session automatically. It also has a Highlight Playback function that creates movies with transitions and soundtracks for you automatically. With the HDR-CX210, you can use the Direct Copy feature to transfer your HD footage directly to a hard drive without even using a PC.
