Sensor and lens assembly
The Sony HDR-CX405 Handycam uses a high-quality lens array, co-developed by Sony and Carl Zeiss, paired with the Exmor R sensor and the BIONZ X processor. The Exmor R sensor can take clear and low noise images with good depth of field. The lens array can offer very wide angle shots with up to 26.8mm focal length and 30x optical zoom. The camera also has 60x digital Clear Image Zoom and 360x regular digital zoom capability. It also has Optical SteadyShot, which is Sony’s 5-axis active optical stabilisation technology. It can work for any focal length and can significantly reduce the effect of camera shake during unsteady conditions such as shooting video while running.
The Sony HDR-CX405 Handycam performs various types of image processing in real time to capture vivid and lifelike images, and powering all that processing is Sony’s BIONZ X image processor. It has support for Motion Shot Video, which displays a sequence of superimposed images from the various frames captured during an action event. It can automatically generate an image out of such superimposed images. The camcorder is capable of processing the recorded video into XVAC S format which can preserve much of the quality at high bitrate while still compressing the data to get manageable storage sizes. It has a very useful intelligent auto mode which allows the camera to automatically determine the appropriate settings by recognising the kind of scene being recorded. The camcorder can automatically detect faces and optimise colour, exposure and focus to get the best quality videos while recording people. It also has smile shutter feature, to automatically snap a picture when the subjects smile.
It has a built in USB cable stored in the carrying strap so you don’t have to carry an extra cable for connecting it to a computer. It has slots for both Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC cards for maximum compatibility. It uses Sony’s X-type batteries for compact footprint and light weight.
