Product Description

Sony HDR CX625 Handycam Camcorder

Unshakable memories

HD Handycam® camcorder holds steady whenever you shoot, with stabilisation and autofocus (AF) so smooth and sensitive that your movies will look smarter in every sense.


Steady on the run

Sony's unique Balanced Optical SteadyShot™ that compensates for camera shake now features Intelligent Active mode, so you can shoot more stable movies even as you run.


5-axis Intelligent Active mode reduces camera shake

Effective for camera shake even while running and shooting at a telephoto setting.


New Intelligent Active Mode enhances image stability

Frame-analysis technology compensates for shake in every image frame in a movie.


Focus more quickly and reliably

Fast Intelligent AF autofocuses not only with exceptional speed, but with uncanny precision, as well.


Fast Intelligent AF speeds up smartly

A new AF algorithm optimises communication between lens and image processor for extra-fast AF, and a state-of-the-art AF range prediction system keeps the subject in sharp focus.


Brilliant high-definition image quality

The Sony G™ Lens goes out to 26.8mm wide angle - an angle of view wide enough to cover events when it can be difficult to step back in order to frame up all of the action.


Have more fun even after shooting's done

Handy functions and brilliant effects are at your command. Enjoy a time-lapse movie5. Push a button to make a highlight clip. It's amazing how far all the fun can go.


See the world change in time-lapse movies

With Time-lapse Capture, shoot stills of a scene over a period of time with a chosen interval between each shot and edit the sequence into a high-quality time-lapse movie6.
