Lock-on autofocus (AF)

Enhances the tracking of moving subjects by using the optimal autofocus (AF) point at all times and adjusting the target frame size to match the subject’s
characteristics. Thanks to advances in phase-detection AF, it’s now more accurate than ever — so lock on and shoot fast-moving targets with precision.

Picture of PJ620 Handycam® with Built-in Projector

Progressive Recording

Clear movies, that contain twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode, can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p in progressive recording mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60/50 frames per second, and each frame is recorded as one full picture. So a still captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode looks extra-sharp.

Picture of PJ620 Handycam® with Built-in Projector

Dual Video Recording

Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.

Picture of PJ620 Handycam® with Built-in Projector

Dual Record mode

Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.

Picture of PJ620 Handycam® with Built-in Projector
