The Sony HDR-XR160 Camcorder is a mid-range high def cam for those looking to do more with their video. Aside from capturing 1920 x 1080/60p HD footage, the XR160 puts tools like a back-illuminated CMOS sensor, a 3.0" touch screen LCD, 42x Extended Zoom, and optical image stabilization with Active Mode at your fingertips. No matter what format you choose to shoot in, the camera records to a 160GB hard disk drive. You can also save your video to Sony's Memory Stick media or SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.

A number of shooting controls also come in handy for making your videos the best they can be. Tracking Focus locks onto a specific subject, while Intelligent Auto automatically sets the camera for your situation. Other noteworthy features and functions of the XR160 include 5.1 channel surround sound audio recording and Clear Phase stereo speakers, among others. When you're all done shooting additional features like Event Browse and Direct Copy come to your aid for fast retrieval and archiving of your footage.
