It's a Full HD camcorder with a 10x optical zoom, 17x zoom, a back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor and plenty of I/O ports, as well as a powered accessory shoe. There's also an electronic viewfinder, and all this puts it up against Panasonic's range-topping HC-X900. There's one big difference; instead of the Panasonic camcorder's separate 1/4.1in sensors for red, green and blue light, the Sony camcorder has a single, large 1/2.88in sensor.
Sony HDR-CX730 supports full HD 1920x1080p Video Shooting ( AVCHD format ) at maximum bit rate for increased detail and clarity even in low light conditions and 50p frames rate for smooth recording.
