Key Features of the Sony CX625 Handycam Camcorder with Exmor R CMOS Sensor

  • Balanced Optical SteadyShot
  • 30x optical zoom
  • Fast Intelligent AF
  • Highlight Movie Maker
  • Time-lapse Capture

Balanced Optical SteadyShot — 5-axis Intelligent Active mode

Advanced image stabilisation suppresses camera shake to stabilise a movie as it is being shot within the wide-angle-to-telephoto zoom range, even under unsteady conditions. 5-axis Intelligent Active mode compensates for vibration in five different directions, so you can shoot stable high-quality movies even while running.

Rapid AF response

Fast Intelligent AF achieves very speedy, accurate contrast-detection autofocus by minimising lens motion, predicting suitable AF range, and accelerating lens drive, thereby improving response so you can capture more fleeting moments.

30x optical zoom

With a wide-angle lens that is ideal for capturing grand landscapes, the camera also provides 30x optical zoom and up to 60x1 Clear Image Zoom for versatile image options.

Dual Video Recording

Record two movies at the same time — one in the maximum-quality XAVC S or AVCHD format and another in MP4 format. That way you’ve got a small file ready for instant sharing, plus a professional-grade file for further editing.

Time-lapse Capture

You can capture still images continuously over an extensive period of time at a selected constant interval from each shot to the next, edit the entire sequence of still images in post-production, and enjoy playback of that series of images as a time-lapse movie.

Highlight Movie Maker

A versatile function to streamline movie editing, Highlight Movie Maker offers several time-saving features. Add highlight points to key moments while recording, and let the camcorder automatically sync movie transitions to your chosen soundtrack.

Exceptional image quality

The high-bitrate XAVC S format13 is for videographers ready to take their work to the next level. Delivering incredible quality, XAVC S is built from the XAVC format used by professional filmmakers and broadcasters, while employing intelligent data compression to export consumer-friendly file sizes.

One-touch remote and One-touch sharing

One-touch remote lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for a digital camera, and One-touch sharing lets you transfer your photos and videos from your camera. Either way, by installing PlayMemories Mobile app to your NFC enable Android smartphone or tablet, you can avoid complex set-up sequences and establish wireless connection simply by touching your device to the camera. You are now ready to control your camera from your smartphone to take a photo from a previously out-of-reach spot, or simply be in your own group shot, as well as transfer them instantly to your smartphone for sharing on SNS. No NFC? No problem. You can also pair the devices manually.

5.1" surround sound microphone

Record clear sound that accurately captures the atmosphere of the scene, and enjoy surround sound playback on your home theatre system. Level meters on the LCD panel provide visual monitoring of each channel’s levels.

Manual settings for iris and shutter speed

This camcorder gives you the freedom to choose manual settings for iris and shutter speed control, ideal for shooting under backlit and underexposed conditions as well as in other situations.

BIONZ X Image Processor

The advanced BIONZ X image processing engine helps achieve more naturally vivid and lifelike image quality as well as faster processing capabilities.

Exmor R MOS sensor

This large, cutting-edge sensor enhances image clarity, reduces noise in dark environments, and enables soft background defocusing.

9.2MP still image capture

Sometimes you don’t need — or want — video. Put your video camera in still image mode and capture amazing high-quality 9.2-megapixel single images as easily as you do with a still image camera.

Sony G Lens

At the heart of superlative optical performance, the Sony G Lens works in perfect harmony with the Exmor R CMOS sensor and BIONZ X processor. It’s essential for realising the exquisitely detailed images that great memories are made of.
