Description

This small handheld HD HDR-CX405 camcorder from Sony is an entry-level, compact handycam for the whole family to enjoy.

Exceptional Image Quality

Features a 26.8mm wide-angle lens so whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide angle lens can help you capture more of landscape shots and indoor scenes. Advanced image stabilisation keeps footage blur-free, even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky. This large, cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.

Put your video camera in still image mode and capture 9.2 megapixel images as easily as you can with a still image camera!

Highlight Movie Maker

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

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

Built-in USB Cable

The built-in USB cable which is held in the hand strap is extremely convenient for quick charging and connection to a PC. For charging without a PC, use an optional compact AC-USB adapter.

Dual Memory Card Compatibility

This handycam has slots for Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC cards, so you can easily record to whichever is readily available.
