  • What buyers say about Sony HDR-CX405/B Handycam HD Video Camera

    I wanted a handheld camera that shot in high definition, had better sound and interface with a memory card, and was also easier to use than an iphone, but I always had an iPhone at my disposal.

    I knew I had to start recording immediately because I was able to test photos and video on the very rare blue moon that came 7/30/15. the timing was great because i was able to test photos and video on the very rare blue moon that appeared 7/30/15.

    I don't care for the quality of the video, I use it for any situation, it's ideal for any situation, and it's amazing for the package you get.

    I discovered after reading the enclosed users manual that if you remove the memory card from your device, it will never be able to handle the recording format, and that you will be stuck with the memory card for the rest of your life.

    The camera is easy to use and I can record longer videos at a time as compared to my iPhone, which is something the camera serves the purpose of buying. The purpose of buying the camera is for my sons sporting events and I have to say the camera serves that purpose.

    Common Questions


    Does it work well in low light?


    We had to repurchase the camera from Best Buy because Focus Camera sent a package with the accessories but NO CAMERA.


    Is there a sound cord input for better sound? Does it work with the camera's microphone?


    I don't know the answer to your question, but it gives a good picture and sound quality when played back.


    Is the sd card compatible with the camera? There have been reviews saying it needs a micro card, but this one is not compatible.


    The Sony 32GB microSDHC/SDXC High speed Memory Card that comes with this set is a micro card and works just fine in this video camera.


    Does the camera record when charging?


    The battery that comes with, only lasts an hour, strongly suggests larger battery or battery charger.


    Is it possible to add a voice narrative to the video after it's been recorded?


    It would have to be done in the editing process with video editing software.
