Sony HDR-CX440 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony HDR-CX440 HD Handycam with 8GB Internal Memory features an Exmor R CMOS sensor and a wide-angle Carl Zeiss zoom lens with 30x optical zoom. The CX-440 captures Full HD 1920 x 1080p60 video and 9.2MP still images to its 8GB of internal memory or to optional media cards. The Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for increased sensitivity in low-light situations, and the Optical SteadyShot image stabilization with Intelligent Active Mode delivers smooth video. Users can monitor and play footage via the 2.7" LCD display with 230K dot resolution.

The camera records using the XAVC S codec at up to 50 Mb/s and features dual recording, which lets you simultaneously capture both high-quality AVCHD and web-optimized MP4 files. The Intelligent Auto Mode analyzes your shot and automatically selects the appropriate settings from 10 distinct scene modes, with 60 different possible combinations. The camera features built-in Wi-Fi with NFC capability, and Sony's Multicamera Control takes advantage of the camera's Wi-Fi capability allowing you to simultaneously control start and stop functions on optional cameras from your camera. A built-in USB 2.0 cable provides a connection to your computer for charging or file transfer, and fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until needed.

1080p60 and 9.2MP Still Images
Create high-definition 1920 x 1080 60p videos and take high-quality 9.2MP still images. Sony's back-illuminated Exmor R CMOS sensor is designed for compact cameras and camcorders. The sensor relocates the photo diodes above the support circuitry, which maximizes the light-gathering area per pixel and achieves better results in low-light conditions.
Wide-Angle Carl Zeiss Lens
The lens has a 35mm equivalent of 26.8mm at the wide end of the focal range. Shoot distant subjects with a 30x optical zoom.
2.7" LCD Display
The 2.7" (16:9) LCD features 230K dot resolution for sharp, bright, vivid images, enabling you to change settings to best represent the scene.
SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode
Compensates for greater degrees of camera shake to deliver smooth video from wide angle to full telephoto shooting.
Multicamera Control
This feature works through Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing you to simultaneously start/stop connected cameras from your camera. You can also trigger shutter release for still photos and control zoom on the other cameras as well. This works with optional Wi-Fi enabled cameras that are compatible with Multicamera Control.
Built-In USB 2.0 Cable
The built-in high-speed USB 2.0 cable provides an easy connection to your computer for charging or file transfer, without the need for a separate cable. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it. Charging your camcorder is faster now through the USB; for every two minutes of charge time, you get one minute of recording time.
7 Picture Effects for Video and Still Photos
Use Picture Effects to add expression and heighten the mood of your videos and photos. Seven picture effects (Toy Camera, Pop Color, Soft High Key, Partial Color, Retro Photo, High-Contrast Monochrome, and Posterization) are available in both photo and video modes. Shooting with these special modes will provide you with an easy way to instantly transform your memories without any post editing software needed.
AVCHD and MP4 Dual Recording
Record video in the AVCHD and MP4 formats for high-quality or easy transfer and sharing. For the greatest flexibility, you can even record AVCHD and MP4 formats simultaneously. AVCHD provides premium video that can be enjoyed on large screen HDTVs, and is ideal for capturing precious memories at special occasions, family vacations, and other moments you want to treasure for a lifetime. MP4 is great for those moments when you want to quickly share on your social networks or store on the cloud.

    Sony HDR-CX440 reviews

    HDR-CX440 HD Handycam with 8GB Internal Memory is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camcorder for the price! This is a great camera. This was my first camcorder and has great color tones and tons of great features for use with the computer. I am a YouTube video creator and do green screen work and all of my tests thus far are great in comparison to the best Webcam I was using. I was using a logitech c920 webcam and this blows it away. I will say the mp4 conversion only seems to support 1280x720. However I work in 1080 so I have to record to mts and then convert to mp4 on my own. Not a big deal. I will have videos in the near future uploaded --------------- Definately worth the money and don't hesitate on this purchase at this price point.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lens-cover switch is fragile; otherwise good camera We use this little camera as Camera 3 for our videoshoots in theatres. It doesn't have nearly enough features to be a primary camera, but as Cam3, the footage it produces,even running unattended, comes in quite handy when integrated with our two semipro-cams footage on the computer. My reason for knocking off 2 stars is that the tiny plastic slider that opens and closes the lens-cover breaks off after just light normal usage. I thought I was going to have to break off the blades that cover the lens when it's closed, but I finally managed to jam it into the open position, and now I tape on a piece of cardboard to protect the lens when the camera isn't in use.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great consumer-level camcorder I use this camera a lot in and outdoors. For tripod mounted shots or those in less busy scenes, it looks great. I paired with a 64gb card, giving me hours and hours of recording time in standard mode. It does come with 8gb of space inside so that's nice if you don't have/misplace a card. Zoom lens is great. Like most handycams, very small. It's the length of most cell phones and can be held completely in one hand. Making it very travel-friendly. It's not perfect however, low light is only decent at best with the mode enabled and busy scenes tend to get noisy (moving water close up, forests, etc) XAVC-S tends to help with the noise but, it also doubles the file size. Being my first HD camcorder, I guess I was expecting a crisp, noise free image. Watch videos made with this camera online before purchase. This will give you the best idea of the end result if you plan on using it for the same purpose.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sony HDR-CX440 This camcorder is lightweight and easy to use with good special effects. When it is focused it takes great high definition video. It can record both a .MTS and a .MP4 video at the same time. The focus is slow and wanders which causes a large portion of the video to be blurry. The Edit/Copy feature does not delete .MP4 videos, so after removing the files to storage the drive needs to be reformatted each time. The camera does not take a crisp photograph. Sony does not yet list this product on their registration website.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sony HDR-CX440 HD camcorder. It takes a while to get the learning curve situated in using this camcorder. It has so many features that it's perplexing to a point where you need to practice with it like a musical instrument's until the technique is embedded in one's mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied I recently became a private investigator and on the advice of others chose this camera. It is a great camera and takes awesome video. The zoom is great as well. I really haven't found anything yet that would be considered a con.
