The Sony CX900E offers cinematic Full High Definition video and detail-rich 20 megapixel photos in a portable, camcorder-style body. Perfect for amateur story tellers or anyone who wants to add some creative expression to their home movies, the CX900E is built around a comfortable, ergonomic body that is packed with professional features and a refreshingly easy-to-use menu interface.
A large 1.0-type Exmor R CMOS sensor delivers crystal clear Full HD video with an incredible amount of detail and exceptionally low-noise results when shooting in low-light conditions. Its capability to record at a 50Mbps bit rate with the XAVC S video format ensures excellent detail retention in fast camera pans and intense action scenes. Additionally, a maximum 120fps frame rate allows you to emphasise the subtlety of movement without compromising on detail.
The remarkable sensor has been coupled with a high-quality Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* Lens which features a 12x optical zoom to deliver a versatile 35mm equivalent focal range of 29mm-348mm. A 7-bladed aperture is combined with three switchable Neutral Density (ND) filters to deliver professional out-of-focus background effects without compromising your shutter speed. Built-in SteadyShot image stabilisation works in conjunction with the sensor and lens to minimise camera shake for incredibly smooth results.
5.1 Channel Dolby Digital audio recording captures sound from all directions to allow you to re-produce the authentic soundscape at the time of recording. Additional features such as Auto Wind Noise Reduction and My Voice Cancelling enhance the audio capture by minimising unwanted or distracting elements from the scene. An external mic input is also available to support microphones equipped with a stereo mini-jack.
Composition is straightforward in any lighting situation with the bright 0.39-inch OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder. The optical design features four aspherical lenses which delivers a sharp, high-contrast image and a wide 33° viewing angle. A large 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD screen features a clear 921k-dot resolution and a swivel design allowing easy composition from high and low shooting angles.
Built-in WiFi with NFCconnectivity opens up a world of creative possibilities. Simply touch your compatible smartphone or tablet to the camera for a fast, hassle-free wireless connection. Once connected, you can use the free PlayMemories Mobile app to remotely control the camera as well as wirelessly transfer files to your mobile device or computer for backup and simple sharing with your friends, family and favourite social networks.
With a Multi-interface Accessory Shoe for attaching additional accessories such as a video light or external display, the Sony HDR-CX900E HandyCam is well equipped to take your films, movies and storytelling to the next level.
