Electronic Image Stabilizer with Dynamic Mode

Long-Lasting Power
This LEGRIA camcorder features silent and speedy operations with low power consumption for extended recording capacities. Even better, its Convenient Quick Charge gives you 3x the power, with up to 60 minutes of recording time from just 20 minutes of charging
PAL Recording Camcorder
The LEGRIA FS405 camcorder is designed for use outside of North America. It's made for countries that support the PAL color encoding system. Phase Alternating Line or PAL recording is used in several regions around the world - including: North Africa, East Africa, Western Europe, Central Asia, East Asia, Southeast Asia, South America (Brazil/Argentina), Great Britain, Australia and Oceania (South Pacific Islands). PAL camcorders usually record using 25p, 50i or 50p frames per second (fps), while NTSC camcorders usually record using 60p/60i/30p fps. North America supports NTSC recording, which means this PAL camcorder is not compatible with TVs and HDTVs in the United States and Canada
