Sony HDR-CX405 1080p Full HD Handycam Camcorder (Black)

Sony’s HDR-CX405 1080p Full HD Handycam Camcorder employs a large, cutting-edge Exmor R CMOS sensor and a wide angle Carl Zeiss zoom lens with 30x optical zoom. Advanced image stabilization ensures blur-free footage, even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky. The camcorder comes packed with exciting features like Intelligent Auto that automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimizes settings and Face Detection that automatically optimizes focus, exposure, and color for best results.

Exmor R CMOS Sensor and BIONZ X Processor

The Sony HDR-CX405 Handycam uses an Exmor R CMOS sensor that enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing. Combined with an advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve faster processing capabilities and beautiful lifelike images. Apart from recording full HD videos, the HDR-CX405 Handycam is capable of capturing amazing high-quality 9.2MP stills when still image mode is activated.

26.8mm Wide Angle ZEISS Lens

The camcorder features a 26.8mm Wide Angle ZEISS Lens which is a combination of the best possible optics with premium-quality electronics and sensor technology. Its wide angle range helps capture more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes, be it videos or still images. The lens offers a focal range as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode

Built-in advanced image stabilization helps ensure blur-free videos even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky. The videos are recorded in a high-bitrate XAVC S format delivering incredible quality for professional videographers. The XAVC format is used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.

Intelligent Auto

Perfectly suitable for learners and beginners, the Intelligent Auto feature automatically determines the type of scene and optimizes a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It offers around 90 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. For easy reference, al the selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen. This camcorder lets you choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control when shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions, as well as in other situations.

Face Detection

With the Face Detection, you can prioritize someone by simply touching their face on the LCD display. This feature is useful for selecting a key person when shooting at a crowded event. Face Detection automatically optimizes focus, exposure, and color for best results. Even if the subject leaves the frame, they will be remembered and prioritized upon re-entering the scene.

Progressive Recording

The HDR-CX405 Handycam records in Full HD video at 60p/50p in the progressive recording mode, which includes twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60/50 fps, and each frame is recorded as one full picture. As a result in stills captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode are extra sharper.

Highlight Movie Maker

The Highlight Movie Maker is a versatile tool that streamlines movie editing and offers several time-saving features. It allows you to add highlight markers to key moments while recording, and let the software automatically sync your transitions to your chosen soundtrack.

Dual Video Recording

The handycam is capable of recording two movies simultaneously — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. The Dual Record mode gives you a small file ready for instant sharing as well as a professional-grade file for further editing. It also lets you shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.
