Product Description

Now you can zoom in on all those special moments in your life. From your toddlers first steps to his/her graduation or wedding you can now capture it all with Sony’s CX405 Handycam with EXMOR R CMOS Sensor. Equipped with a number of features including a wide angle Carl Zeiss zoom lens with 30x optical zoom makes the CX-405 a marvel of design.

26.8mm Wide Angle 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. Whether you’re shooting movies or still images, the 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, this camcorder shoots as wide as 26.8mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.

Sensor and Processor

The large, cutting-edge Exmor R CMOS sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing. The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities. Additionally, by putting your video camera in still image mode, you can capture amazing high-quality 9.2MP single images as easily as you do with a still image camera.

Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode

Advanced image stabilization keeps footage blur-free, even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky. 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.

Face Detection

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

Intelligent Auto

This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimizes a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It provides the best results for 90 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference. Because great smiles are fleeting, this feature ensures they’re never lost. Automatically capture snapshots of smiling faces, even while recording video. 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.

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.

Progressive Recording

Clear movies, that contain twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode, can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p in progressive recording mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60/50 frames per second, and each frame is recorded as one full picture. So a still captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode looks extra sharp.

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