Manufacturers Description

The CX105 is so small and light you can pop it into a pocket and be ready to record whenever the moment presents itself. An 8GB internal memory gives you 3 hours of shooting time, with the option of boosting that with a Memory Stick. Not only do you have less to carry, transferring clips to a TV or PC is quick and easy. Full HD 1080 recording guarantees amazing picture quality, which is further enhanced by a range of the latest technologies from Sony, including x.v.Colour which virtually doubles the colour palette that you normally see on screen. And now there’s no need to pack your stills camera, the CX105 is ready to take photos too, even when you’re recording. With Smile Shutter automatically photographing every smile, you’ve got twice as many memories to look back on.

 

Whatever your plans, from days out to weekends away, the CX105 is the perfect portable companion when you want to keep packing to a minimum.

 

Recording in Full 1080HD delivers five times more detail, or ‘resolution’, than ordinary standard definition images

 

Flexibility and convenience with a Memory Stick

The CX105 comes with a built–in 8GB internal memory, which enables you to record up to 3 hours of HD video, with the option to add a Memory Stick for up to 6 hours’ extra filming. This format means there are no moving parts so even sudden movements won’t cause skipping in your videos. And because there are no tapes or discs to worry about, the CX105 is light and easy to carry. With the optional DVD burner you can transfer videos straight from camcorder to DVD with one touch disc burn. Or save your footage to PC with super–fast USB 2.0 connection.

 

Detail and sound taken care of

The CX105 gives you the option of recording in Full 1080HD for five times more detail, or ‘resolution’, than ordinary standard definition images. Playback on any HD ready TV or PC, and you’ll see how closely your clips match real life. That goes for sound, too: 2.1 stereo sound recording with zoom microphone captures crisp, clear audio, adding an extra dimension of realism to your videos.

 

Smart automatic functions

Now you can make sure that even the trickiest scenes look great, thanks to auto functions which take the guesswork out of matching settings to subject. Take sun–drenched backlit scenes, for example. The D–range Optimiser adjusts exposure and contrast to counter the effects of high–contrast conditions, so you can clearly see faces in the foreground. And when faces are your focus, Face Detection adjusts the camera’s settings to deliver clear, natural skin tones.

 

Focusing on quality images

The CX105 is fitted with a Vario–Tessar lens made by Carl Zeiss, the world renowned optical specialists. These premium lenses are highly rated by photographers for their colour precision, superb contrast and extremely low distortion levels at all focal lengths. Add to this an optical zoom that extends to 10x magnification and you have the capability to shoot with amazing detail even when the subject is at a distance.

High quality photos too

The CX105 isn’t just about great moving pictures, you can take photos on it too. Press the shutter and catch all the action in 4 megapixel detail. In fact, you don’t have to stop filming — the CX105 will capture 2.3 megapixel still images even while you’re recording movie footage. If you’re at a party or special event and there are lots of happy faces around you, select Smile Shutter and it’ll automatically shoot still photos whenever your subjects smile, without interrupting your filming.

Great results whatever the conditions

The CX105’s powerful lens is complemented by an Exmor CMOS sensor which improves picture quality with a 2x increase in sensitivity. Working with the BIONZ high–speed processor, it reduces noise in low–light conditions, and enables a faster shooting response. Filming in dark interiors or when you’re on the move can result in camera shake ruining what was otherwise a great clip. The CX105 comes with SteadyShot which is always on, stabilising the image using sensors to compensate for any wobble, so you get beautifully composed results.

Long–lasting power

Great action can come and go in a moment. QuickStart means you’re ready to begin filming within seconds of flipping open the LCD screen. You can record continuously for up to 7 hours on one charge of the optional Lithium battery. Then, when you’re in standby mode, power consumption is ultra–low, so you’re all set to catch that memorable moment.

 

The large touchscreen puts menus, settings and clips at your fingertips

Framing and playback are that bit clearer thanks to the higher resolution and increased contrasts of the Clear Photo LCD Plus screen. And because the screen measures 2.7", it’s big enough to be viewed by more than one person, so you can share the fun. Because it’s a touchscreen, menus and settings are just a tap away, while innovative technologies index your clips and arrange them as thumbnails, for easy searches.

 

Easy sharing and quality viewing

Managing your growing video collection is simplified by PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software included with the CX105. Install it on your PC and it provides a perfect archive for your videos. You can arrange them by date, by person, and search through them quickly. From here you can burn them to disc, send them to friends or upload them to sites.

 

If you connect your CX105 or computer directly to an HD Ready TV you can view your video in spectacular HD on the big screen. If your TV is a BRAVIA which supports PhotoTV HD, you’ll be able to experience even more lifelike HD images, bursting with detail and colours. And with BRAVIA Sync you’ll be able to use the TV remote to navigate through all the clips and photos stored on your CX105.
