42x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action   
Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 30x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining HD image quality.

Back-illuminated "Exmor R" 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 R" CMOS 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 Steady Shot image stabilization w/ Active Mode     

Optical Steady Shot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture.

The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.

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.

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.

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.

Intelligent Auto (90 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 (90 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Low light, Macro, Portait, Baby, Walk, Tripod.

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 HDTV1, 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.

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 LED Light   
The HDR-CX130 features an LED light that can assist in low-light situations giving you more flexibility when capturing your video.
