With four times the resolution of Full-HD, 4K (3,840 x 2,160) delivers true-to-life imaging for a wide variety of shooting situations, in ultra-high definition.
4K photo mode makes it easy to create high-resolution prints from individual in-camera, 4K video playback screen grabs. Recording in 4K lets you capture, print and enjoy spur-of-the-moment images often missed with traditional photography.
Now you can use Your smartphone as a Sub Camera. Using your smartphone's Wi-Fi, you can shoot from two angles at the same time. And because you're shooting with two different cameras, you shoot from any distance or angle you choose for a variety of Picture-in-Picture images.
Capture clear Shots with Excellent Detail in Both Bright and Dark Areas. By combining two images taken with different exposure times, the HDR Movie function suppresses blown highlights and blocked shadows for crisper, clearer videos. This is the world's first consumer camcorder to feature the HDR Movie function. Even in difficult shooting situations, such as backlighting, you can easily record true-to-life videos with excellent gradation.
By driving each lens group separately, drive ranges are reduced to deliver high-image quality and high-powered zooming. It also keeps the body compact, even with a 20x optical zoom and 4K definition.
Simply set the baby's name and birthday to display thumbnail images of scenes recorded on and around that date, making it easy to find the scenes you want.

Wind Shield Zoom Microphone — A special damping material between the mic and mic net suppresses wind noise for clear recording.
High-Quality Audio Parts — Four 6mm-diameter, high-S/N mics and aluminum electrolytic capacitors reduce sound distortion and increase clarity.
Leica Dicomar Lens — In addition to rendering crisp images, this remarkable lens produces the subtle nuances and shading that Leica lenses are renowned for.
8M BSI Sensor — Increasing the readout speed, this advanced sensor suppresses the rolling shutter distortion.
Crystal Engine 4K — This high-speed LSI processes the massive volume of 4K data quickly and accurately while reducing noise.
An image sensor with 60-fps readout and a precise focus lens drive for 4K images enable superior focusing speed, stability and tracking performance. Complex 4K focusing is also automated for comfortable framing of stunning 4K shots.
Level Shot automatically detects and corrects tilting in images. It can be adjusted to three different levels — OFF, Normal or Strong — depending on shooting conditions. 5-Axis HYBRID O.I.S.+ from wide-angle to powerful zoom shots, HYBRID O.I.S. + uses five-axis correction to suppress blurring. It lets you capture crisp, clear images in nearly any shooting situation.
