Product details

The Sony Handycam HDRCX240EB Full HD Camcorder in black brings exceptional video and photo quality together with advanced enhancement technology for incredible results.

A better kind of image sensor

All your movies will be rendered in stunningly clear and bright Full HD resolution thanks to the dynamic BIONZ X image processor and super-responsive Exmor R CMOS sensor built into the Sony CX240.

This digital camcorder is fitted with a high-grade 29.8 mm wide-angle ZEISS Vario-Tessar lens. With a maximum aperture range of f/1.9 to f/4, you'll be able to let more light in whilst achieving gorgeous soft-focus depth of field effects. Its aperture range extends down to an impressive f/29, great for longer-range shooting.

You'll be able to capture everything from static subjects to fast-moving action with a versatile shutter speed ranging from 1/25 to 1/10,000.

Zooming in

Get closer to your subjects with a closest focusing distance of 1 cm. The Sony HDRCX240 Camcorder offers an amazing 54x Clear Image Zoom facility, which lets you achieve even more compelling and intimate shots to wow your audience with.

Exceptional sharpness is maintained throughout the full zoom range for consistent shooting in a variety of circumstances. Coupled with the high-speed imaging engine and sensor, the camcorder delivers satisfyingly low-noise shots, also due to its sensitivity of 6 lux (1/25 shutter speed).

Clearer videos and photos

The Sony CX240 Full HD Camcorder is fitted with SteadyShot technology, an ingenious feature that employs motion sensors inside the device that electronically compensate for some movement while you're recording.

It's a great way to eliminate blur created by hand shake and related movements, so even casual shots look great.

Photographic functions and more

Achieve as many different things as you can, as the CX240EB offers a still photo mode that enables you to capture 9.2-megapixel images (4032 x 2272p) to augment your creativity.

An integrated monaural microphone captures clear, defined audio to enhance your movies, and it also offers a zoom function that links sound with subject proximity for better realism.

Take advantage of the fantastic range of automatic scene settings, whereby you can really enhance what you're shooting and expand your creative potential.

Shoot for longer with up to 130 minutes of battery power courtesy of the built-in rechargeable NP-BX1 lithium battery.

Make your home videos more memorable with the Sony Handycam HDRCX240EB Full HD Camcorder.
