    Detailed Description
    (Manufacturer # DCR-SX45/B )


    An ideal solution for recording just about any occasion, the ultra-compact DCR-SX45 Handycam® camcorder features a 3.0" touch-screen LCD (230K), a professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens, which delivers sharp, high-resolution images and powerful 70x extended zoom that lets you capture extremely tight shots–even from far away. There's also a convenient built-in LED video light which makes it easier to capture low-light situations.

    70x Extended Zoom to get even closer to the action

    Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 60x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining image quality.

    SteadyShot® image stabilization with Active Mode

    Steadyshot® image stabilization with Active Mode allows for a greater degree of image stabilization over the well known, Sony developed, SteadyShot stabilization that has been used for years, giving you more stable video even when on the move or in low light circumstances.

    Face Detection

    Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural.

    Direct Copy to external HDD without PC10

    Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive10 (sold separately), all without a computer. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your TV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder’s handy playback features.

    Film Roll / Face Index

    With Film Roll Index, the camcorder previews the beginning of scenes and creates scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes). Face Index indexes your video footage according to the faces detected in each scene. When it’s time to play back video, simply search for what you want by selecting from among the detected faces displayed in the index.

    3.0” touch-screen Clear Photo LCD Plus™ display (230K)

    The 3.0” touch-screen Clear Photo LCD Plus™ display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.

    Dolby® Digital stereo recording with Built-in Zoom Mic

    The built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects with the camera's zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds.

    Built-in USB cable for easy file transfer/charge

    The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it’s out of the way until you need it.

    Auto Lens Cover

    The automatic lens cover protects the Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens from scratches during transport or while not in use by closing the lens cover automatically when the camera is shut off.

    Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens

    The professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens is designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses, and SteadyShot® image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake.

    Intelligent Auto (36 different scene combinations possible)

    Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from seven distinct scene modes (36 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Macro, Portait, Tripod.

    Built-in LED video light

    The DCR-SX45 features an LED light that can assist in low-light situations giving you more flexibility when capturing your video.

    Includes Sony® PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software

    Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort, and view your video and still images on your compatible PC9. In addition, multiple output options let you burn your memories to DVD, as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular video and photo sharing sites.

    Dual Media card slot

    For convenient storage and sharing of your images and videos, the DCR-SX45 accepts Memory Stick Duo™ / Memory Stick PRO Duo™ / Memory Stick PRO-HG Duo™ media and SD/SDHC media (sold separately).
