MiniDV Recording Offers up to 530 lines of horizontal resolution, 3X color bandwidth (vs. VHS) and significantly higher S/N ratio, to provide stunning video performance.

3 CCD Imaging System Each 1/3" CCD has 380,000 pixels for brilliant digital picture-quality.

530 Lines of Horizontal Video Resolution Advanced HAD™ Megapixel CCD technology, combined with highquality optics provide outstanding video performance with up to 530 horizontal lines of resolution.

Digital Still Memory Mode with Memory Stick® Media Capture digital still images at 640x480 resolution, directly onto Memory Stick® media for easy transfer to PC’s for emailing, printing, or sharing with other compatible Memory Stick® devices.

Advanced HAD™ CCD Technology Enhanced CCD design allows more light to reach the imager which reduces video noise to improve signal-to-noise ratio by up to 6db (2x better than a standard CCD). Particularly effective when shooting in dark situations.

12X Optical/48X Digital Zoom The optical zoom helps to bring the action up close from far away. In addition, the digital zoom interpolation means that extreme digital zooming is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms.

Aspherical Ground Glass 58mm Lens Larger diameter allows more light to strike the Advanced HAD™ CCD imagers for greater detail and clarity, while the aspherical lens reduces optical distortion, and provide better corner-to-corner focus.

2.5" Precision Hybrid SwivelScreen™ LCD Display (211K Pixels) Provides excellent viewing clarity with improved resolution. The 211K pixel LCD display makes images sharp and detailed during playback or when monitoring recording. The Hybrid Reflective-Transmissive LCD Screen provides accurate viewing in sunlight or bright light, virtually eliminating the "wash-out" common with traditional LCD Screens. 

Manual Zoom Ring Allows user operated manual zoom speed for more flexibility and control.

Precision Color Viewfinder (180K Pixels) Increased pixel count provides more detail and clarity of video subjects. Manual Shutter Speed Gives you optimum control over the shutter speed based upon shooting environment or desired effect.

Manual Exposure Dial Create your own special look by controlling the camera’s exposure amount manually, allowing in less or more light for creative control.

Stamina Power Management System 9 Hours (Using Optional NP-F960) The Sony DCR-VX2100 can record for up to 9 hours or playback for up to 13 hours (with LCD screen off) on a single charge with the optional NP-F960 .

LITHIUM® Battery with AccuPower™ Meter System Charge the battery at any time because unlike NiCad (Nickel Cadmium) batteries Sony’s rechargeable LithiumIon batteries are not subjected to a life shortening "memory effect". Sony’s exclusive AccuPower™ meter displays the battery time remaining in minutes, in the viewfinder or the LCD screen.

Super SteadyShot Optical Stabilization System An advanced version of Sony’s SteadyShot® System that minimizes even high frequency shake and vibration using motion sensors and an optical active prism stabilization system, for better performance even in difficult shooting situations.

i.LINK® DV Interface (IEEE1394) A high speed bi-directional digital video/audio communication between two devices equipped with an IEEE1394 interface, including camcorders, digital VCRs, and PCs.

Intelligent Accessory Shoe Provides power, on/off and special operational commands to a variety of Sony Intelligent Accessories via an 8-pin interface. This enables easy synchronized operation between the Handycam® camcorder and such accessories as video lights, infrared lights and microphones without additional batteries or cables.

Progressive Shutter System Mechanical shutter system that provides Progressive Scan performance while utilizing aninterlace scanning system. Digital still images will be sharp and clear with excellent definition


Take control of sound and vision with the DCR-VX2100 3 CCD camcorder, offering the brightest video results of all Sony's Mini DV models. With its Advanced HAD progressive scan CCD technology, illumination is improved. Delivers low light performance without the use of infrared technology.

You enter into a contract every time you buy, hire or lease products or services — or click on an ‘I agree’ button online.

Making a contract involves three basic steps:

You make an offer: ‘I’d like to buy this jersey.’
The seller accepts the offer: ‘That’ll be $59.95.’
You both exchange something of value, called ‘consideration’. The seller agrees to sell the jersey. The buyer agrees to pay the price of the jersey.
The contract is formed when you tell the seller you accept the offer. You must also both intend to make a legally binding contract.

Usually when you buy a product or service, the sale is final unless the item breaches a guarantee under the Consumer Guarantees Act. The retailer doesn’t have to give you a refund or exchange if:
you change your mind
your circumstances change
you find cheaper products elsewhere

We will not accept returns of any item more than 15 days after you receive the shipment. This is the entirety of our Return Policy, any variation will result in denial of return.
