This Sony Handycam HDR-CX625 Full HD Camcorder holds steady whenever you shoot, with stabilisation and autofocus (AF) so smooth and sensitive that your movies will look smarter in every sense.
Steady on the run
Sony CX625’s unique Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ that compensates for camera shake now features Intelligent Active mode, so you can shoot more stable movies even as you run.
5-axis Intelligent Active mode reduces camera shake
Effective for camera shake even while running and shooting at a telephoto setting.
Intelligent Active mode makes images smooth and steady
Frame-analysis technology compensates for shake in every image frame in a movie.
Focus more quickly and reliably
The Sony CX625’s fast Intelligent AF autofocuses not only with exceptional speed, but with uncanny precision, as well.
Fast Intelligent AF works fast and smart
A new AF algorithm optimises communication between lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, and a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system keeps the subject in sharp focus.
Go as wide as 26.8mm
The Sony G Lens of the Sony CX625 goes out to 26.8mm wide angle - an angle of view wide enough to cover events when it can be difficult to step back in order to frame up all of the action.
Advanced XAVC S format with high bitrate of 50Mbps
High-bitrate recording in XAVC S format clearly captures even changing scenes with a lot of motion.
5.1ch microphone for surround sound
The Sony CX625’s built-in microphone captures clear sound with true sense of atmosphere.
