The Handycam HDR-CX130 is an HD camcorder released by Sony, forming one half of the HD lineup. The other half is the higher-end HDR-XR160 model, and while both camcorders share the same improved "Exmor R" CMOS sensor and high zoom capabilities, the HDR-CX130 functions on flash memory while the HDR160 records to an internal hard drive. Improved and more sensitive than before, the HDR-CX130's "Exmor R" CMOS sensor promises better footage in dim lighting conditions, such as indoors or at night. A 30x optical zoom lens and 42x extended zoom both find space, but the XR160's hard drive memory format was omitted in the CX130 in favor of a flash memory format, which accepts user-supplied SD cards. The camera shoots both 1920 x 1080 high definition videos and 3.3-megapixel still photos and ships in black, silver or blue.
