    The Sony HDR-CX405 is a portable camcorder that can help you out whenever you’d like to record important moments of your life. Nothing’s worse than struggling with a device that is not made specifically for your needs, and when it comes to video recording, things are quite delicate. You want to work with a device that can keep things crisp even if you move around, that can record in various lighting conditions and that can ultimately record high quality video. Sony has quite a few products on the line for you to check out, and this one is one of the best when it comes to the price-to-quality ratio.

     

    Full high definition video is the standard these days, even if UHD content is pushed more and more on the market. You can safely invest your money in the Sony HDR-CX405 camcorder and enjoy the FHD standard for the years to come. 1920 x 1080p videos still have a lot to prove before they are going to be replaced by the market’s needs, and you can safely rely on the camera to satisfy your needs. On top of this 1080p resolution, you will be pleased to know the camera can record at 60 frames per second, so you can say goodbye to smudged frames during fast action scenes. XAVC S, AVCHD and MP4 movies can be recorded with the aid of the camera. All of them benefit from AAC-LC audio tracks, which are recorded thanks to the Dolby Digital 2ch technology.

     

    The Sony HDR-CX405 can help you out with still images, as well. If you need to take such shots and you don’t have a dedicated digital camera around, or if you’d rather concentrate on the camcorder, you can rely on the 9.2MP sensor of this video camera, which can take great stills, at resolutions of up to 4032 x 2272, in the 16:9 format.

     

    The maximum optical zoom you can use is 50x, whereas the maximum digital zoom reaches a value of 300x, allowing you to capture details from a safe distance. The focal length ranges from 1.9 to 57mm, and its 35mm equivalent is 26.8 – 804, when the 16:9 ratio is used for recordings. The LCD screen of the camcorder has a resolution of 2.7 inches, making it ideal if you’re looking to have a good view of all the details regarding to the settings you need to change. There are quite a few, especially if you don’t rely on automatic modes to do your job. You can put the Sony HDR-CX405 to good use if you’re interested in making the most out of each video recording.

     

    The Sony HDR-CX405 camera comes with four connection ports. You can use a composite video out port, a HDMI D one, a USB 2.0 port, and a Bravia Sync one. The USB port is designed not only to transfer data between the device and a computer. You can also charge the camera in this way and you can enjoy a minute of recording time for every two minutes of charging time.
