With the Sony HDR-CX240, you can record all kinds of different subjects. Capture a wide image with the 29.8mm wide-angle lens or bring your subject closer with 27x optical zoom. You shoot the smallest details with the macro mode at a focal distance of only 1cm. You can also record at low-light locations through the large diaphragm of f/1.9 and the back-lit CMOS sensor. You capture fast-moving
by recording in 50 frames per second. Don't worry about white noise, because optical image stabilization corrects your movements. Choosing between file formats is no longer necessary, because with the CX240 you can simultaneously record in Advanced Video Coding High Definition (AVCHD) and MP4. AVCHD provides high quality footage and MP4 gives you easily-shareable files.
