In addition to high definition resolution options, the camcorder also includes a 20x optical zoom for close-ups and landscape shots, a BSI CMOS sensor for increased light sensitivity in low-light environments, and K2 Technology for high quality audio as well as video capture. For user-friendliness the camcorder also utilizes a face detection system for auto-optimization when certain people are being filmed, an image stabilizer for smoother video capture even when moving, and one-touch uploads from the camcorder directly to Youtube via a USB connection.
