The Sony HDR-CX405 camcorder is great for budding filmmakers. Its high quality sensor is paired with a powerful processor to deliver excellent low-light results, while support for the XAVC S codec provides superior flexibility in editing and post production.

Exmor R CMOS Sensor

The back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS Sensor provides true-to-life image detail and colour reproduction. Capable of producing stunning, razor-sharp Full HD video, the sensor can also deliver large 9.2 megapixel still photos, providing you the flexibility to record both photos and video.

Improved Low-Light Video Performance

The proven BIONZ X image processor delivers excellent low-light performance, equipping you with the ability to shoot in lighting conditions as low as 3 lux without having to resort to harsh video lighting.

Carl Zeiss 30X Optical Zoom Lens

The wide-angle Carl Zeiss lens works in conjunction with the sensor and processor to deliver excellent resolution and detail rich results. Its 30x optical zoom delivers a 35mm equivalent focal range of 26.8mm to 795mm, suitable for shooting a broad range of scenarios including sweeping landscapes, stage productions, concerts, sporting events and more. A 350x digital zoom can be enabled to deliver even greater reach for additional creative versatility.

Sony SteadyShot Image Stabilisation w/ Active Mode

Optical SteadyShot Image Stabilisation is built into the lens, minimising camera shake to produce smooth footage even when at maximum zoom. Active Mode is perfect for travel, adding dynamic stabilisation and smoothing out movement when walking or inside a moving vehicle.

XAVC S Codec 50Mb/s Bit Rate Recording

Delivering the ability to capture footage* using the XACV S codec provides filmmakers and editors increased versatility when editing or adding special effects. The 50Mb/s bit rate retains image quality when pushing the boundaries of post-production and colour grading, reducing banding and other artefacts to ensure the highest quality result possible.

Simultaneous Dual Format Recording

Simultaneous AVCHD and MP4 recording is also possible for improved convenience and increased workflow efficiency. AVCHD is ideal for playback on large screen TVs and movie projectors while MP4 is optimised for the web and perfect for sharing with friends and family on your favourite social media platforms. Saving both file types on your MicroSD card allows you to share your footage quickly, while retaining a higher quality version for post-production or backup.

2.7-inch Flip-Out LCD Screen

The 2.7" flip-out LCD screen features 230K-dot resolution for bright, accurate composition and playback, while menu navigation is easy thanks to the intuitive thumb-stick.

Built-in USB Cable

The Sony CX405 also features a built-in USB 2.0 cable, delivering the convenience of file transfer and battery charging without having to fuss with separate cables and external battery chargers.
