Sony Australia Says:

40GB HDD - Record Over 15 Hours of Full HD 1080i Footage
The large 40GB Hard Disk Drive allows the user to record over 5 hours of High Definition video at it's highest quality (XP mode). By reducing recording quality to LP mode, users can achieve over 15 hours of High Definition recording!

4.0 Megapixel still capture (2.3 Megapixel still capture while recording movies)
When switched to still camera mode, the SR5 can capture high quality 4.0 Megapixel still images. The Dual Recording function makes it possible to record still images equivalent to 2.3 Megapixel while shooting video.

Film Roll Index and Face Index
One press of the body-mounted Film Roll button makes it possible to preview the beginning of scenes and create scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes) – perfect for seeing what was recorded in a long take. The SR5 also incorporates face detection technology, allowing the user to play scenes simply by pressing the human faces detected during shooting.

Natural colour reproduction - x.v.Colour
The HDRSR5 is compatible with the x.v.Colour or xvYCC colour space, which is an international standard for colour space in video endorsed by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission). This standard can express a wider colour range (1.8 times the current colour data range) than the currently used broadcast standard. When played back on an x.v.Colour-compliant TV, your recordings will come to life with rich natural colour like never before!

RECORDING TIMES:
AVCHD XP Mode (15 Mbps): approx. 5hrs 20min
AVCHD HQ Mode (9 Mbps): approx. 9hrs 40min
AVCHD SP Mode (7 Mbps): approx. 11hrs 50min
AVCHD LP Mode (5 Mbps): approx. 15hrs 10min
