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.

Brilliant camcorder

Really happy with my new camcorder, fantastic picture and sound quality. Light as a feather and easy to handle. For the price I feel that I got a bargain. Would definitely recommend this camcorder.

Good value for money

If like me you want something that you can just start using straight away then this is it. It is pretty easy to use and very lightweight. It is cheap and it does feel a little flimsy but it's pretty much what I expected for the price.

Sony such a shame

Bought this as looked at reviews and was quite favourable but on using the camera although easy to use when the videos were transferred to the computer they looked horrendous tried different image settings but to no avail so I returned this product and bought a Panasonic instead

Thank you for using Question and Answer.


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.
