The Sony 8GB HDR-CX290 HD Handycam Camcorder utilizes an 8.9MP Exmor R CMOS sensor and a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens for capturing Full HD 1080 video and 8.9MP still images. Users have the option of recording video in one of two formats; the MP4 format is optimized for sharing videos on the web, and AVCHD offers the highest quality. The Zeiss lens offers a 35mm equivalent of 29.8mm on the wide end of the focal range, and the optical zoom ratio is 27x. In addition, a 50x Extended Zoom gets you even closer to the actio.
