    • Description

      The Sony HDR-CX405 Handycam captures Full HD 1920x1080 video at 60p and 9.2 megapixel still images. It includes an Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is great in low light, and a wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens with 30x optical zoom. The Optical SteadyShot image stabilization helps to keep your videos blur free.

      Exceptional image quality
      The high-bitrate XAVC S format is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.

      Up to 26.8mm wide-angle lens
      Whether you’re shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, selected camcorders shoot as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

      ZEISS lens
      Sharing a commitment to outstanding performance and design, Sony and Carl Zeiss co-develop lenses that combine the best possible optics with premium-quality electronics and sensor technology for Sony’s Handycam® models.

      Optical SteadyShot™ with Intelligent Active Mode
      Advanced image stabilisation keeps footage blur-free, even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky.

      Exmor R™ CMOS sensor
      This large, cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.

      Highlight Movie Maker
      A versatile tool to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time-saving features. Add highlight markers to key moments while recording, and let the software automatically sync your transitions to your chosen soundtrack.

      Motion Shot Video
      Motion Shot Video plays a sequence of superimposed images that trace recorded action in split-second intervals for you to analyse in detail. During playback, you can adjust the interval, or pause to capture and share a still image.

      9.2MP still image capture
      Sometimes you don’t need — or want — video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality 9.2-megapixel single images as easily as you do with a still image camera.

      Dual Video Recording
      Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.

      Dual Record mode
      Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.

      Intelligent Auto
      This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimises a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It provides the best results for up to 1805 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference.

      Manual settings for iris and shutter speed
      This camcorder gives you freedom to choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control when shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions, as well as in other situations.

      Dual memory card compatibility
      This Handycam® has slots for Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC cards, so you can conveniently record to whichever one is more readily available.
