Since becoming a mom I have inherited many titles including the title “Photographer”. No, I am no professional but I am usually the one behind the camera capturing those moments we want to save forever. Of course a picture can tell a thousand words but there really is nothing captures the essence of life like a camcorder. 

We have owned a few different cameras with video capability over the years but nothing like the Sony Handycam. Making videos with the PTPA award winning Sony Handycam this past while has been an experience on its own. Sony Handycam captures the moments in crisp, high-def colour and quality sound as it’s meant to be.

The best video recorded with Sony Handycam no matter what the lighting. The 60X optical zoom makes it easy to zoom in and capture the moments up close. Imagine looking back on your child’s first year and reliving those milestones like first words and first steps. Pictured up close and personal; in true HD quality. 

No more shaky videos and everybody is captured with face recognition, for someone with a shaky hand like me, these are some of the best features!

What’s a video without sound? Sony Handycam not only captures videos the way they are meant to be seen but also the way they are meant to be heard. It captures even the slightest or far-away sounds which complete the video.  

Sony Handycam is better by design with features like a long battery life, all the more recording to do. Great for taking it places like the first time you drop off the kids at sleep-away camp or family vacation with GPS and in-camcorder maps!

Sharing the memories couldn’t be easier with the Sony Handycam. The built in projector lets you show off your home movies wherever you want, whenever you want. Plug in the camera via HDMI for livinroom enertainment, show off those cruise videos. Edit and upload your videos to YouTube or face book using the Play Memories software! 

The Sony Handycam is much more than just your average camcorder and definitely worth capturing your memories with. We had a great time creating some of our own family memories. See our video below of our family having some summer fun, caught with the Sony Handycam.
