Part of Sony's lineup of revamped HD Handycams, the HDR-CX160 is a model related to the HDR-CX130 but offering several improvements, including a back-lit "Exmor R" CMOS sensor and Wide Angle G lens, extensive zoom and built-in flash memory, and new automated features. The HDR-CX160 records 1920 x 1080 high definition videos and can even do so in poor light, thanks to a more sensitive, back illuminated "Exmor R" CMOS sensor. A Wide Angle G lens captures a broader perspective and brilliant visuals, while a 30x optical zoom and 42x extended zoom let users capture footage from far away. Built into the camcorder is 16GB of internal flash memory to store up to 6 hours of footage at once, which can be viewed via the 3" ClearPhoto LCD Plus touch screen. The HDR-CX160 features several automated modes for better recording, including Optical SteadyShot for more stable videos, Tracking Focus to keep focus on a moving object, and Wind Noise Reduction. Users may also capture 3.3-megapixel still photos on the camcorder.
