Low-Light Capability

With ISOs from 50 to 3200 (1600 for videos) and 3D noise reduction that takes into account signal noise from the preceding frame in video shooting, the HD2000A has good low-light shooting capability.

Compact, Ergonomic Body

The HD2000A measures just 3.5x2.1x4.4 inches and weighs only 11 ounces ready to shoot. Its unique shape handles comfortably for both video and still shooting.

Face Chaser Function

In both still and video shooting, the HD2000A can quickly detect and focus on human faces in a scene and follow the faces of up to 12 people as they move in the scene. It can even track faces at a side angle.

High-Speed Still Shooting

The HD2000A can record up to 9 8-megapixel still images at 6 fps and up to 15 4-megapixel images at 12 fps. With Reverse Sequential Shooting, the camera keeps loading images as long as the Photo button is held down, then saves the most recently loaded images onto the SD card when you let go of the button.
