High-performance G Lens

  • This sophisticated Sony's G Lens lens incorporates Sony's unique optical technology and unparalleled quality control. Moreover, it's been optimised to perfectly complement the camcorder's advanced image sensor and image-processing technology, thus expanding your shooting possibilities.

Major 'G' Lens Features

  • The camcorder's 29.5mm wide-angle, 20x optical zoom 'G' Lens offers a field of view that's ideal for many shooting situations, ranging from broad landscape shots to close-up shots where it is difficult to obtain sufficient distance from the subject.
  • Two ED (Extra-low Dispersion) glass elements reduce the chromatic aberrations caused by differences in light refraction to minimise colour fringing. The advanced 10-group, 15-element lens structure also includes three compound aspheric lenses for images that are crisp and clear, even when shooting at a high zooming ratio.
  • Advanced optical lens technology enables Sony's Exmor Sensor system realise sharper images with higher resolution and less noise, even when shooting in very low light.
  • The six-blade iris diaphragm is almost circular, which allows operators to incorporate creative background blur into their shots for beautiful visual effects.
