About the Sony HDR-CX240

The Sony HDR-CX240 Full HD Handycam Camcorder (Blue) features an 1/5.8" Exmor R CMOS sensor and a wide-angle Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar zoom lens with 27x optical zoom plus 54x Clear Image digital zoom. The CX240 captures Full HD 1920x1080 video at 60p and 9.2MP still images. SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode delivers smooth video and 3-Way-Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother results.

Users can monitor and playback footage via the 2.7" Clear Photo LCD display with 230K dot resolution. Dual recording lets you simultaneously capture both high-quality AVCHD and web-optimized MP4 files. The Intelligent Auto mode analyzes your shot and automatically selects the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes, with 60 different possible combinations. A built-in USB 2.0 cable provides a connection to your computer for charging or file transfer and fits conveniently into the hand strap, so it's out of the way until you need it.

Sony HDR-CX240 Features

  • Create high definition 1920 x 1080 60p videos and high quality 9.2MP still images. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated ExmorR CMOS sensor.
  • Designed for compact cameras and camcorders, the Exmor R CMOS sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, maximizing the light gathering area per pixel so you can shoot with better results in lower lighting conditions.
  • From the authority in lens technology, the Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens provides a high quality 29.8mm wide angle so you can get everything you want in the shot.
  • Get amazingly close with 27x optical zoom plus 54x Clear Image digital zoom. With Clear Image Zoom the powerful processor compares patterns found in adjacent pixels and creates new pixels to match selected patterns, resulting in more realistic, higher-quality images.
  • The 2.7" (16:9) Clear Photo LCD (230K) displays sharp, bright, vivid images, letting you compose a shot more easily -- even outdoors, while enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.
  • SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver stunningly smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting. In addition, innovative 3-Way Shake-Canceling adds electronic roll stability for even smoother video capture
  • Sony's Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
  • The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it.
  • Picture Effects add a new level of expression to video and photos, making ordinary landscapes and portraits come to life by heightening mood and emphasizing certain attributes. There are seven different effects such as partial color to make your focal point stand out, or watercolor
  • Record HD video in the AVCHD & MP4 formats for highest quality or easy transfer and sharing. AVCHD provides premium video that can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs & is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime.
  • Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from ten distinct scene modes and wind noise reduction.
