File endings are hard to perform with, i experienced to purchase file conversion software program.

I am really pleased with my new camcorder. I have not had a great deal of time to experiment – slo-mo shooting and golf shot nevertheless to be tried out – but what i have performed so much is outstanding. Notably happy with the ease of transferring material from smart card to pc.

Sony CX410 Full HD Handycam with Wi-Fi – Black (55x Extended Zoom)

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Full HD, wide-angle G Lens, Exmor R CMOS sensor, Wi-Fi ready, Balanced Optical SteadyShot and GPS
  • Precision Sony G Lens with 30x Optical Zoom
  • SteadyShot Image Stabilisation reduces blur
  • Built-in GPS tagging

I use this primarily for work purposes. Love the built in usb cable, saves messing around with sd cards. The images stabilisation is exceptional. Recently also took it on a family holiday and it proved its worth. Very good battery life, small enough to carry round, and crucially very fast to fire up, so you are likely to get your footage before the moment passes which was an issue with my last camera. I’ll need some convincing that adding gps tagging is an important feature but for still photos i guess it can be useful. Beware that the advertising suggests it has wifi capability – it does – but be aware only if you buy another bit. Overall though very chuffed.

As the entry-amount well balanced optical steadyshot product, the cx410 gives stabilisation that has to be observed to be thought. Not only does the entire lens device float independently, but it can differentiate concerning camera shake and photographic motion. Sony have accomplished an amazing position establishing this stabilisation method – just search on line for ‘balanced optical steadyshot’ movies and get ready to be surprised. 8mm lens at its widest environment and a continual hand, you can genuinely achieve flawlessly nonetheless video pictures without a tripod (and if you have the steadiness of a surgeon, you can do this zoomed in just as well). Light panning rewards far too, smoothing out any jerkiness. The cx410 has a 30x optical zoom, developed-in usb charging cable, and a one-contact photo button (a half-depress initiates concentration and slo-mo movie to help you compose the excellent shot). A earlier reviewer complained that it is tough to clean up the lens since it moves in just the camera. Of class it is very quick to change off the well balanced optical steadyshot from the menu, so this is truly not a issue. Sony look to be pursuing the mid and substantial-assortment models (which incorporate a constructed-in movie projector) at price ranges a great deal closer to £1000. So, at about £400, i can not endorse the cx410 sufficient.

Havent utilised outside but, but played all over with all the environment and if you use the tutorial pretty easy to perform out how it operates. Only disappointment was thought would be eye finder as like to glimpse by way of that but my fault for not reading effectively. Having said that, for the revenue and the very small helpful size genuinely looks excellent so significantly.

Sony CX410 Full HD Handycam with Wi-Fi – Black (55x Extended Zoom) : As the entry-level balanced optical steadyshot model, the cx410 offers stabilisation that has to be seen to be believed. Not only does the entire lens unit float independently, but it can differentiate between camera shake and photographic movement. Sony have done an incredible job developing this stabilisation system – just search online for “balanced optical steadyshot” videos and prepare to be amazed. 8mm lens at its widest setting and a steady hand, you can genuinely achieve perfectly still video shots without a tripod (and if you have the steadiness of a surgeon, you can do this zoomed in just as well). Gentle panning benefits too, smoothing out any jerkiness. The cx410 has a 30x optical zoom, built-in usb charging cable, and a one-touch photo button (a half-depress initiates focus and slo-mo video to help you compose the perfect shot). A previous reviewer complained that it is difficult to clean the lens because it moves within the camera. Of course it is very easy to switch off the balanced optical steadyshot from the menu, so this is really not a problem. Sony seem to be pursuing the mid and high-range models (which include a built-in video projector) at prices much closer to £1000. So, at around £400, i cannot recommend the cx410 enough.

Shoots smooth 1080p video, although the file size is very large. Comparatively the 720p video is amazingly small and can be rendered in an. It’s a pity it can’t do similar with the 1080p video, but i suppose that would require processing power it doesn’t have, or perhaps it’s not possible yet. I did expect less noise in low light situations by now, but technology doesn’t seem to have advanced as much as i’d hoped in this area. I’ve had good results with neat video filter to combat this, but it’s something i’d rather not have to combat. It adds to the rendering time quite considerably, which on my old pc equates to many hours for a 7 min or so file. One thing that put this above other similarly priced camcorders for me is the audio in option. 1 microphones do detect the running of the camera so the sound is not clean, i was so happy at this point i had made sure i had a camera with an audio in 3. I’m not sure if it is a reasonable expectation to expect it not to detect the running of the camera, as components have to move and everything seems to have at least some running noise. Zooming in adds a good deal to the audio noise as well.

Great camera with one major poor detail. Such a good camera is spoiled by the 37mm screw-in filter as the edges are picked up in the images taken with the moveable lens, even on panning so without a uv or other filter, the lens will get dirty. In these circumstances the camera has to be turned on to get access to the lens which still moves during cleaning.

I am a film student and this was exactly what was needed for my film projects. Light & easy to use, it serves for a nice entry level camera.

Using it for amateur filming and facebook videos. So i ordered this camera on black friday and have been using it for making videos on the go and on a newly-started danish comedian facebook page (if you want to check it out it’s [. ]) even though facebook fiddles with the quallity it should give you an okay idea of what you can expect from it. The auto stabilization in the camera works like a charm, i’ve had people genuinely surprised, they’ve been asking me how i can keep my hands so steady when filming “praëm og herman” (that facebook page mentioned above)i use it weekly and it’s all i’ve wanted in a consumer grade camcorder, its battery is quite weak(about 3 hours of filming, which is actually not that bad compared to other camcorder) but i’m never far away from a socket, so its not a problem.

Excellent picture quality + very clear sound. . 50fps + full hd = excellent picture with smooth life like frame transition. Fantastic buy for anyone wanting a camera that will keep up with fast moving action without the annoying blurring that can occur in a fast pan. Battery supplied doesn’t last too long if you use the camera a lot, the bigger battery costs £99 but worth it, though you can run it off the mains too. Good indoor / outdoor performance, indoors you may need the low lux setting on. Three mic’s to the front and creates dolby digital so gives you surround when you route it to the tv via the 5. 1 amp’s front jacks, voices come through fairly loud and very clear. Zoom on this camera is fantastic, do wish the optical zoom was longer reaching though, all the same it also has a stereo mic socket that works with many of the stereo mics from previous cameras, needs a plug in power type external stereo microphone, and with that you can add a 3. 5mm stereo plug to socket extension cord for more mic cable if needed. For accesories the sony website is worth a visit, but tripods.

I got this for my husband for xmas as we are expecting our first child in the new year and i thought this would come it handy. I got it half price which was a bonus because otherwise i would have had to down graded to maybe a not so good one. This is perfect for what we need and the anti shake sytem works wonders. The zoom is fantastic and it is as easy as point and shoot.

Best camcorder i’ve owned so far. Great quality for a sem-pro camcorder, love how fast it starts up and start to capture in a matter of seconds. Recommend it for anyone who want a good camcorder with affordable price.

The body feels strong, and substantial. My amazing older sony trv900e , with a viewfinder, always has been a dream to operate with all the buttons intuitively in the correct finger reach, so that the camera remains stable when hand held, and yet zooms perfectly and adjusts appropriately without causing camera jerk, etc. I was proud of my work with it. This new cx410 is so sensitive to the record button, which i consequentially constantly mishandle , thus switching it on and off while trying to make smooth telephoto adjustments. Thus, i cannot yet get anything much sensible out of my filming so far. I also keep catching the photo button, which is adjacent to the telephoto button, when trying to zoom, thus triggering a still photo to be taken. My size of fingers cannot naturally move and co-ordinate the controls easily and smoothly. No doubt, i shall find a way, but at the moment it is work in progress.

Easy to set up and use- just charge the battery and point. Light to hold, gives superb results. Excellent price point on amazon about £80 cheaper. As charging takes long time would recommend a spare battery.

One of the best camera you can get for the money. For the price of the camera i think its one of the best around. Sure there are many other cameras out there that are better but then you also has to spend more money. I bought this on a “sale” so i got a real bargain for the price.

My previous handycam was also a sony, although very good i always had some problems with camera shake regardless of how still i stood when zooming, with this one unless zooming to the full extent i find no tripod needed and they have certainly improved it to my satisfaction, and i am quite hard to please. The colours are more vibrant, hand held panning is also very good. I think sony have done an excellent job and i am looking forward to many years enjoyable videoing.
