Sony’s Handycam HDR-CX405 is a lightweight and simple camcorder without many extra features. We appreciate its portability but were not convinced that is reason enough to choose it over cameras with better features or image quality for the same price.

  • +

    Its small size makes it incredibly portable.

  • -

    Its ports aren’t easy to access.

Everything that you could possible need is in this set. The only thing that you don't get is an extra battery.

The specifications indicate that it has 24fps modes. IT DOES NOT! This camcorder only has 30 and 60 fps modes. It's an OK consumer camcorder, although very hard to navigate through the menu.

This user earned $10.00 in rewards for writing this review. Learn More I purchased this bundle for a Christmas present. As far as I can tell from testing it out it is going to be great for my daughter. I also purchased the extended warranty just for piece of mind. As I do with most electronics.

this was an impulse buy after our last camcorder broke three years ago - the fact that this uses sd cards is great. takes good video that looks great on 4k tv's and the audio is clear even when zooming to 30 x

Instead of renting a Video Camera I decided to buy a Sony Camcorder and everyone agrees that was an Excellent Decision! Our Daughter's Beach Beach Wedding Videos turned out Beautifully!!! The colors are vibrant and the quality of the Wedding recordings are Superb!!!

A great little camera and simple to use. Face detection can be a pain so turned it off as it was making the scene to blurred. Super light weight and the anti shake gives great results really glad I brought it
