Sony HDR-CX240 Review

The Sony HDR-CX230 is a no-decorations camcorder that tries its best to include a remarkable 1080p60 video recording and zoom lens into a solid package.

The HDR-CX230 measures 2.3” x 2.1” x 4.65” (HWD) and weighs only 6.3 ounces. There is a variable hand band on the right part; it has a pouch that holds an incorporated USB cable that can be utilized to charge the camcorder or transmit videos to a PC. It can as well be charged through a built-in AC adapter, which corks into the right part (the connector is concealed by a flap). In addition under that flutter is the multiple connectors that can allow several accessories, counting a normal video output adapter; a micro HDMI dock is situated on the opposite part of the HDR-CX230 for HDTV connectivity.



There is a typical tripod opening on the base, in addition to an opening for a Memory Stick or SD Duo card. The 8GB internal space will record 45mins of the top quality video recording; however it's simple enough to include a bigger card if you would like additional recording time. Once the battery is completely charged the HDR-CX230 shows 105 minutes of usage time accessible. There is no shoe adapter or shoe, however there's as well no mic input hence there's no grounds to mount an outside microphone on the camcorder.



The lens is a 27x zoom covering a 29.8-804.6mm (35mm equivalent) ground of view at a changeable f/1.9-4 opening. A widened digital zoom is accessible through 32 xs; hence, the lens can successfully zoom to 953.6mm.



There’re only very necessary controls fitted into the camcorder. On the top there is a photo and zoom rocker button that is utilized to capture 8.9-megapixel still pictures and the record key is situated at the back close to the battery. Function is almost completely automatic, even though you can change some settings yourself. That's somewhat clunky to achieve, since it has to be accomplished through the list of options, and the alternatives are fundamental—you can darken or brighten a scene or position the white balance effortlessly using a stick controller to change sliders in the list of options, however manually changing focus that way is a work out in disappointment.



The clear LCD is 2.7” in size. Its resolution is just 230k dots, trailing behind camcorders with superior quality displays. It isn’t touch sensitive, hence you will have to depend on a tiny stick control (on the base of the board) to steer through list of options.



The HDR-CX230 records HD video in different formats and bitrates. The highest setting is AVCHD at 1080p60, and whereas that is excellent on paper, the real footage captured by the HDR-CX230 has a few problems. At its widest slant there is visible barrel deformation.



The Sony HDR-CX230 camcorder flatters videographers with a good asking price and a remarkable optical zoom array. Its interface is a bit clunky, necessitating you to make use of a small stick to steer through its list of options, and the video quality trails behind others in its category.

  • The Good :
    8GB internal memory, 27x f/1.9-4 zoom lens, 1080p60 video
  • The Bad :
    No touch screen, No Wi-Fi, Very partial physical controls, No mic input
Our score:
3.5 / 5
