The Sony HDR-CX440 HD Handycam with 8GB Internal Memory features an Exmor R CMOS sensor and a wide-angle Carl Zeiss zoom lens with 30x optical zoom. The CX-440 captures Full HD 1920 x 1080p60 video and 9.2MP still images to its 8GB of internal memory or optional media cards. The Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for increased sensitivity in low-light situations, and the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode delivers smooth video. Users can monitor and play footage via the 2.7" LCD with 230K dot resolution.
The camera records using the XAVC S codec at up to 50 Mb/s and features dual recording, which 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 10 distinct scene modes, with 60 different possible combinations. The camera features built-in Wi-Fi with NFC capability, and Sony's Multicamera Control takes advantage of the camera's Wi-Fi capability allowing you to simultaneously control start and stop functions on optional cameras from your camera. 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 needed.
Create high-definition 1920 x 1080 60p videos and take high-quality 9.2MP still images. Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for compact cameras and camcorders. The sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, which maximizes the light-gathering area per pixel and achieves better results in low-light conditions. The lens has a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm at the wide end of the focal range. Shoot distant subjects with a 30x optical zoom. The 2.7" (16:9) LCD features 230K dot resolution for sharp, bright, vivid images, enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene. Compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting.
The built-in high-speed USB 2.0 cable provides an easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer, without the need for a separate cable. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time, you get one minute of recording time.
Use Picture Effects to add expression and heighten the mood of your videos and photos. Seven picture effects (Toy Camera, Pop Color, Soft High Key, Partial Color, Retro Photo, High-Contrast Monochrome, and Posterization) are available in both photo and video modes. Shooting with these special modes will provide you with an easy way to instantly transform your memories without any post editing software needed.
Record video in the AVCHD and MP4 formats for high-quality or easy transfer and sharing. For the greatest flexibility, you can even record AVCHD and MP4 formats simultaneously. AVCHD provides premium video that can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs and is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations, and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime. MP4 is great for those moments when you want to quickly share on your social networks or store on the cloud.
