Sony's HDR CX240 Camcorder uses Steadyshot image stabilisation so you can record amazing, flowing pictures. Its 1080p video capture lets you maintain smooth video quality while adjusting frame rates during editing. It also takes 9.2MP still shots and has a built-in USB 2.0 cable for easy file transfers.

Capture life exactly the way you see it. The cx240e handycam® features a powerful bionz x image processor, an exmor™ r cmos sensor, and a wide-angle zeiss lens.

The new bionz x image processor is fast, powerful, and reduces noise levels across the image. It works in tandem with a detailed exmor r cmos sensor to faithfully reproduce every aspect of the scene in precise, natural detail.

Whether close-up or panned out, capture the scene with extraordinary precision and clarity. A 29.8mm wide-angle vario-tessar lens by zeiss delivers the whole picture, just as you remember it.

Need to get closer to the action? that's no problem with the cx240e. A 27x optical and 54x clear image zoom lets you get in close for those priceless moments without losing sharpness.

A good camcorder at a very reasonable price

This is a useful device for recording everyday events. It is comfortable in use and the on-screen menu is easily understandable with a good range of options. First impressions of the videos and photos produced are good. A slightly wider field of view would be useful. Don't buy it if you aim to produce commercial movies but otherwise it is good value for money.

Quite a good camcorder

The camcorder is easy to use and i am amazed by the sound quality. I was shooting for something and unfortunately the area where i was shooting was very noisy. After playing the video back i was amazed that i could not hear the background sound at all so that is plus for me. Overall does what it's supposed to do for a good budget.

Yes, you can film while charging, as long as the battery is not too low. In which case it's probably best to let it charge for a minute or two first.
