Product Description:

Sony HDRCX240 Full HD 60p Flash Handycam

Make it memorable with Sony Full HD/60p quality. Capture amazing footage in low light, get close to the action with a 27x zoom, wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens and say goodbye to shake with SteadyShot image stabilization. It's the perfect starter camera.


The Makings of a Masterpiece
Precious moments become even more special the second time around when recorded in exquisitely rich 1920 x 1080/60p Full HD video. And now thanks to Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor, you can capture every minute of birthday parties, campfire sing-alongs, or any other situation where lighting is less than perfect in vivid clarity and lifelike detail. Notice the perfect photo op while recording? You can shoot 9.2MP still images and video at the same time so you won't miss an ounce of the action.

Incredible 27x Optical Zoom
Get amazingly close with 27x optical zoom plus 54x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in blurry images. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.

Sharp Screen for Perfect Shots
The 2.7" (16:9) Clear Photo LCD (230K) screen displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily even outdoors, while giving you the ability to change settings to best capture the scene.

Shake-free Footage
SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle, all the way to full telephoto shooting. Innovative 3-way shake-cancelling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture. It's perfect for shooting footage while walking, chasing after the kids or any other less-than-steady scenario.
