Key Features

1920x1080 Full HD 60p/24p Recording w/24.1MP still image capture

The Sony HDRCX760V offers 1920x1080 high definition resolution letting you record your memories in exceptional Full High Definition quality. Capable of 60p/24p recording and playback via HDMI and compatible HDTV** providing stunning clarity and incredibly detailed and smoother playback of your memories. Also take 24.1 megapixel still images while shooting video.

96GB embedded Flash Memory for up to 38 hours of Recording*

The built-in 96GB* embedded Flash memory can record and store up to 38 hours of high definition video footage(HD LP mode).

Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ image stabilization w/ Active Mode

On standard SteadyShot camcorders a single “shift lens” is moved in the optical block to offset camera shake. Balanced Optical SteadyShot w/ Active Mode moves the entire optical block at once, maintaining the integrity of the optical path and improving shake reduction by up to 13X. It also reduces vignetting (light falloff towards the edge of a scene) and lowers distortion in videos and still photos.

Manual Control (Iris/Shutter/Exposure/White Balance)

Get the most out of your camcorder with enhanced manual controls. The assignable dial allows for control of focus, exposure, white balance, iris, and shutter speed.

CinemaTone Presets and 24p Recording for Cinematic Quality Video

For extra control over image expression, CinemaTone technology is used to deepen the color and recreate film-like color tones. Combined with 24p recording, you’ll have some of the tools you need to fulfill your need for cinematic expression.

Advanced Controls with Expanded Focus, Zebra, and Peaking

The HDRCX760V provides advanced capture and control features that are often considered the domain of professional cameras including expanded focus for precise manual focus control, zebra and peaking for precision focus and exposure adjustments.

26mm Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T Lens

From the authority in lens technology, the Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens provides a high quality 26mm wide angle so you can get everything you want in the shot.

Back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor for Superb Low-light Video

Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony’s back-illuminated Exmor CMOS sensor. Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor 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.

17x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action

Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 10x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

3.0-inch touch-screen Xtra Fine LCD display (921K) w/TruBlack technology

The 3.0-inch Xtra Fine LCD screen (921K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene. TruBlack technology brings remarkably higher contrast delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare.

Color EVF Crisp Clear Video Monitoring

A color EVF (electronic view finder) provides clear crisp representation of your video allowing for proper framing, battery conservation, and increased stability.

Closer Voice(with Face Detection)

When the camcorder’s Face Detection technology identifies people in a scene, an Advanced Acoustic Processor automatically reduces background noise, resulting in recorded voices with outstanding clarity and intelligibility.

Tracking Focus follows selected subjects in/out of the frame

Tracking Focus works as an extension of Face Detection to allow you to select an object with a touch of the LCD and have the focus follow the selected object, even if it leaves the frame and returns.

5.1ch Surround mic for Vivid and Dynamic Surround Sound

Dolby Digital 5.1 channel recording captures active sounds coming from all directions, so you can experience your home movies the way you experienced them while recording.

Wind Noise Reduction for Clear Voice Recording

Wind Reduction reduces noise and interference that is produced when wind passes over the microphone, giving you a clearer and more enjoyable sound experience.

Expanded Recording/Monitoring with Mic/Headphone Jack

Features dedicated mic and headphone inputs for expanded audio recording options and convenient monitoring of audio with headphones (external microphones and headphones sold separately).

Active Interface Shoe to Attach Intelligent Accessories

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

Event Browse Groups Photos/Videos for You for Easy Reference

Event Browse conveniently groups your images and videos together for easier viewing. The date range that Event Browse groups your pictures and videos is easily adjusted to suit your needs. When used with the Highlight Playback feature, making and sharing a highlight reel from your event is easy and fun.

Highlight Playback Creates Movies with Transitions for You

Why spend hours editing your movies when you can let your camcorder do it for you? Highlight Playback identifies and compiles key scenes into a short, entertaining movie complete with music and transitions. You can even pinpoint the exact scene you want to include in the highlight reel.

Clear Phase Stereo Speakers for True and Dynamic Sound

Bring your video alive with Clear Phase stereo speakers. Drawing on Sony’s high-end audio expertise, renown S-Master digital amplifier technology is utilized to produce more true-to-life sound.

Geotagging with Built-in GPS Receiver & NAVTEQ Maps***

A built-in GPS receiver*** makes the HDRCX760V an ideal choice for travelers. The receiver gives you the ability to view your current location on the LCD map display, as well as "tag" your shooting locations. 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 PlayMemories Home software****. Additionally, the receiver automatically adjusts your camcorder's clock to the proper time zone.

Direct Copy to External HDD without PC*****

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.

Built-in USB Cable for Easy File Transfer/Charge

The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.

Intelligent Auto (120 different scene combinations possible)

Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction. There are 120 different combinations possible: Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod, Wind Noise Reduction. The camcorder utilizes an advanced sound processor and sophisticated noise reduction algorithms to reduce wind noise by up to 10db compared to other models. In addition to reducing low frequency noise, iAuto also suppresses mid- and upper-frequency noise, resulting in clearer, more enjoyable sound.

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 22 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.

Built-in Flash

The built-in flash will assist in shedding light on your subject when shooting still photos.

Style Name: PJ760 - Camcorder with Built-in Projector
I did a lot of researchs before spending all this money on a camcorder

This one has all the best technology of Sony camcorders and more

Why to buy this one

1. Picture quality is superior, full 1080P which many other Camcorders have but the color quality is the best

2. The sound is 5.1 with wind sound reduction (we tried it outside in a windy day and it did a great job)

3. The moving lens technology makes the picture much more stable (I examined this technology by placing 2 camcorders on my car dash while driving and there was a huge different in picture stabilization)

4. The built in projector was more than my expectation, so cool

5. It has both sold internal and external memory

6. It has a remote control, GPS, wide lens 10X (17X optical)which gives you many options to use all kinds of attached lenses

7. 24.1 megapixels still image recording

But 3 things you have to think of

1. It's a heavy camcorder and can be tough to keep holding it for long time
2. Pricy, try to wait if you can and get it with the bundle (which it comes free)
3. Kills the battery faster than other camcorders , you need a spare one

I'm a pro filmmaker and worked for years in 35mm. I also have a Sony EX-1, which is a pro-level camera with 3 1/2" CMOS sensors.

In a/b comparisons of my EX-1 with the 760V, I have to say that I'm astounded. The color fidelity and depth is almost better on the 760 than my EX-1, and in terms of sharpness and resolution, the 760 is ALMOST the same as the EX-1--and the 760 costs 1/4th that of an EX-1. I did the comparisons on footage burned to blu ray, and shown on a 60" LED LCD Sharp Aquos TV.

I'm very, very fussy about image quality, and I was totally blown away by how GOOD the CX760V is.

I also did a/b comparisons using a CX160, and that camera showed a definitely inferior image quality with the EX-1. So you do get what you pay for!

In terms of the active steadi-shot, it's again nothing short of amazing. I did a 16 minute hand-held take, following my subject in and out of rooms and up and down hallways....and it looks like it was shot using a Steadi-Cam. If you use a still camera flash bracket (about $20 or less) for added stability for hand-holding, your results are even better. And the ability to zoom with such stabilization is great too. Finally, you can zoom to a full 10x zoom--and have things look ALMOST tripod steady. I've shown this camera to other filmmakers I know and they are astounded--and green with envy--when they see how easy it is to get such superb hand-held footage.

I do a lot of multi-camera interview, concert, show, and documentary footage. The CX760 intercuts beautifully with the much more expensive EX-1, so much so that I will be buying a 2nd camera to allow full 3 camera shoots with this great image quality.

Style Name: CX760 - Camcorder Verified Purchase
I've first read the other reviews here on Amazon before posting my own. This HDR-CX760 is a upgrade for me from last years HDR-CX700 and I have actually used both camcorders with the HDR-CX760 having just completed 3 weeks of daily use in very windy Mykonos, Greece and on the streets/canals of busy, wet and unstable Venice, Italy.

1) The camera is NOT heavy. It has 96GB of solid state memory which makes it very light. The battery size determines some weight factor based on which size Sony battery you will use (yes, take an extra).

2) The lens is heavier than last years HDR-CX700 but the benefits gained from the amazing 'optical balanced' system makes even an extra pound (if that were the case and it's not) so worth it. You will not tire out with the HDR-CX760 in hand all day. What we did, was attach a SLR neck strap to it so that it could rest against the chest like a SLR.

3) 'Balanced Optical' stability is amazing technology. Beyond any camera I have ever used. Buy it for this reason mostly and then for the brilliant colors this camcorder produces. The lens 'FLOATS' for perfected stability while shooting. No matter how hard you jerk the camcorder, stability mostly remains.

4) AVCHD formats and 60P vs. 24P vs. MAC vs. PC. Please do your homework before you shoot something vital. The menu is easy to navigate and user friendly but if you shoot top-of-the-line quality say at 24P, you'd better have a AVCHD DVD Blu-Ray player capable of playback. I had to upgrade to Denon's 1611UD to get both DVD playback at pure 1080P as well as USB playback using just files instead of DVD's. Same goes for a burner for Blu-Ray DVD's. I picked up Sony's very compatible VBD-MA1 burner which is a perfect marriage.

Style Name: CX760 - Camcorder
This is by for one of the best camcorders Sony has ever made for a consumer class. It has a ton of controls. Sony even added a manual Gain setting this year. The 60p, 60i and 24p shooting modes are excellent. The 1/2.88 sensor does very well in low light conditions. IMO it does better than the Canon Vixia HF G10. The 96GB of flash memory is more than enough.
The feature that really shines is the Balanced Optical Steady Shot. It is some of the best I have ever seen. When Sony said it offers up to 13x better stability than other generations they were not lying.
For the price you do get alot of features that other companies lack. The 26mm lens is also a plus, it's very wide and gets everyone in the shot. The night shot is also a bonus.
The only thing I would suggest is to get a bigger battery, It really drains the juice with all the new features.
I have to give it Sony, they really amazed me this year..
