The SONY HDR-CX405/B keeps your valuable memories fresh for everyone to enjoy with the solid integrity and all-around ease of use. Optical SteadyShot with Intelligent Active Mode prevents camera shake and blur from ruining pictures.
This camera features an Exmor R CMOS sensor, which is a large, cutting-edge sensor that enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing. It has a 1.05-inch wide-angle Zeiss lens, so 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 26.8 mm2 (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.
Dual Video Recording allows you to 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. With 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 this 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.
