12x optical zoom Sony professional
G lens

Sony's unique optical design technology and quality control are the heart and soul of the HXR-MC2000's sophisticated G™ Lens, delivering exceptional performance on par with some of the best lenses in the industry. The camcorder perfectly complements the G Lens with an advanced image sensor and Sony's famous image processing technology and allows zooming in for the close-ups, to the 29.8 mm wide angle view in video mode (35mm equivalent).

SteadyShot® & Active SteadyShot image stabilization

This feature ensures smooth movement wherever you're shooting and helps to reduce the natural swaying motion that occurs from walking. Sony's innovative 3-Way Shake-Cancelling technology adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture and helps to ensure that images are up to 10 times steadier for wide angle shooting than conventional Optical SteadyShot images.

Manual or Automatic Control

Using the assignable lens ring, you can manually adjust key features like Focus, White Balance, Exposure, AE Shift, Iris priority and Shutter Speed priority. You can also control the G Lens iris to create an out-of-focus effect in the foreground or background and adjust the shutter speed to create special effects, such as the flowing motion of a waterfall or bird wings in flight.
