CX440 Handycam® with Exmor R® CMOS sensor

Sony HDRCX440B

Features

  • Advanced image stabilization keeps footage blur-free, even when the recording circumstances or the user's hands are shaky.
  • Whether you're shooting movies or still images, the class-leading wide angle lens can help you capture more of landscapes shots and indoor scenes, when you don't have enough room to step back. Even without a wide conversion lens, selected camcorders shoot as wide as 26.8 mm (16:9 aspect ratio) in movie mode.
  • The high-bitrate XAVC S format is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.
  • More shots means more interesting editing. Connected cameras can easily record footage from a variety of angles, whether mounted directly to the HDR-CX440 or triggered wirelessly. Multi Camera Control makes it easy to sync shooting settings on all devices.

50Mbps XAVC S 3 1920x1080 at 60P, AVCHD ® and MP4 codecs Create cinematic video in high definition 1920 x 1080 30p/60p up to 50Mbps in XAVC S 3 and high quality 9.2MP still images. XAVC S3 format uses MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 for video compression and linear PCM for audio compression, while saving files in a MP4 wrapper which allows for extensive record times and easy editing. Experience stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain with Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R ® CMOS sensor.

26.8mm ZEISS ® Lens w/30x Optical/60x Clear Image Zoom Not only is this 26.8mm wide-angle ZEISS ® Vario-Tessar lens ideal for capturing grand landscapes, but also allows you to get amazingly close with 30x optical zoom plus 60x Clear Image digital zoom. Most digital zooms use electronic cropping to get closer to the subject, resulting in un-sharp images. 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. Clear Image Zoom doubles optical zoom for closer photos and video.

2.7" Clear Photo Plus LCD display 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.

Optical SteadyShot image stabilization w/Active mode Optical 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.

Automatically creates highlight video in MP4 from multiple clips Highlight Movie Maker produces a short highlight movie clip to share and enjoy instantly. Using an advanced algorithm, based on the motion gyro, Highlight Movie Maker selects the best scenes from your videos and automatically creates a MP4 highlight video from multiple clips.

Connect, control, backup and share wirelessly with NFC 2 /Wi-Fi ® Easily connect to an Android o iOS smartphone or tablet with Wi-Fi ® and the PlayMemories Mobile app to control the camcorder (Rec, photo, zoom) or instantly transfer and share movies and photos via your mobile device. NFC 2 (Near Filed Communication) makes it even easier to connect to NFC 2 compatible mobile devices with one touch.

Broadcast LIVE from your camcorder using Ustream 4 live-streaming Share the adventure as it happens via Ustream 4 live streaming.. Now your circle of friends and family can share the excitement in real time by simply logging in to Ustream 4 from anywhere. You can also link your favorite social accounts with the streaming to notify your friends when you start streaming video.

Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge 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. Charging your camcorder is faster than ever now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time you get one minute of recording time.

Face Detection with voice enhancement and noise reduction 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.

Get creative w/ 7 picture effects for video and still photos 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 which looks like a painting.

Multi-camera control Add a different point of view by including other camera angles to your movies. The camcorder connects to compatible cameras 5 - like an Action Cam - via Wi-Fi ® and uses the camcorder's LCD to preview what the other cameras are seeing and simultaneously start recording on all synced cameras. Use PlayMemories Home 6 to easily edit a muli-view movie for a great video experience.

Either way, by installing the Imaging Edge Mobile app on your NFC-enabled Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish a wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera.

  • The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.
  • Sharing a commitment to outstanding performance and design, Sony and Carl Zeiss® co-develop lenses that combine the best possible optics with premium-quality electronics and sensor technology for Sony's Handycam® models.
  • Sometimes you don't need-or want-video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality 9.2-megapixel single images as easily as you do with a still camera.
  • Clear movies containing twice the image data of movies recorded in interlace mode can be recorded in Full HD at 60p/50p in progressive recording mode. The images are as smooth as those shot at 60/50 frames per second, and each frame is recorded as one full picture, so a still captured from a movie recorded in progressive mode looks extra sharp.
  • Record two movies at the same time - one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you've got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.
  • Dual Record mode enables you to shoot HD video and high-resolution still images simultaneously to capture the best shot in both ways.
  • This automatically optimizes focus, exposure and color for best results. Select someone to be prioritized simply by touching their face on the LCD display, which is useful for selecting a key person when shooting at a crowded event. Even if the subject leaves the frame, they will be remembered and prioritized upon re-entering the scene.
  • This feature automatically determines the type of scene being shot and optimizes a combination of settings from three groups (Face, Scene, Camera shake). It provides the best results for 90 scene types, even at night and in backlit scenes. Selected settings are displayed as icons on the LCD screen for easy reference.
  • Because great smiles are fleeting, this feature ensures they're never lost. Automatically capture snapshots of smiling faces, even while recording video.
  • Give free reign to your imagination. Picture Effect expands movie and photo enjoyment by letting you add up to seven creative effects (Partial Color, Retro Photo, Soft High-key, High Contrast Mono, Toy Camera, Pop Color, Posterization) without troublesome editing on a computer.
  • This camcorder gives you the freedom to choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control, ideal for shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions as well as in other situations.
  • For easy browsing and playback, this Handycam® plays back GUI group videos and still images that have been recorded as separate events. You can choose from different display schemes from event view or index view as needed, for better organization, searching, viewing, and sharing of your personal content.
  • This Handycam® camcorder has slots for Memory Stick Micro and Micro SD/SDHC cards, so you can conveniently record to whichever one is more readily available.
  • Use an extra-light, extra-compact X type battery to minimize the overall size and weight of this Handycam® in operation.
