Sony HDRCX405 2.29 Megapixel Full HD 50p Flash Handycam

Create clearer memories with Full HD/60p and Optical SteadyShot image stabilization. Every moment you capture benefits from a 26.8mm wide angle ZEISS lens and 30x Optical / 60x Clear Image Zoom. Easily charge or transfer files with the built-in USB cable, and automatically create highlight videos from multiple clips in MP4 for easy sharing.


For family fun and a whole lot more
• Beyond high technology, Handycam performance relies on close attention to human factors. Such as the flexibility to create, shape, share, and discover better ways for images to really move you. Plus, it focuses on carefree yet functional approaches to get to the heart of a subject. Sony’s know-how is dedicated to more fun and exciting moviemaking, from start to finish. It's more than a new Handycam, it’s a handier way to provide as much happiness as you can handle – for this generation and the lucky ones to come.

See life in a new light
• Where visionary technology and design meet, Handycam image quality reigns supreme. A ZEISS lens, an Exmor R CMOS image sensor and a BIONZ X image processing engine provide the essence of picture performance. Expansive zoom coverage as wide as 26.8 mm, and XAVC S 50 Mbps high-bitrate recording that captures scenes of remarkably dynamic detail.
