Sony HDR-CX105EB review

 

The HDR-CX105 is Sony's latest HD camcorder.

Sony Handycam HDR-CX105E

 

Check out the Sony HDR-CX105E if you want a portable camcorder that shoots high quality HD video.

The Sony HDR-CX105E doesn't have the gobsmacking excitement of the HDR-TG3. It's not quite so small and although light, its form factor will mean it doesn't slip so easily into the pocket, unless you're wearing Barbour. But it does offer even better...

Sony - HDR-XR105E

 

Sony's HDR-XR105E combines a pair of trends in the modern day circa-£500 camcorder. Firstly, it has an on-board 80GB hard drive, and a very quiet one at that. Secondly, it can shoot in resolutions of up ...

It might be overkill for someone who merely wants a solid device for some home movies, but Sony's HDR-XR105E is an impressive, quality piece of equipment nonetheless.

Sony HDR-CX105

 

Sony's HDR-CX105 had everyone oohing and ahhing over it when we first saw it, and rightly so – it was one of the smallest full-HD camcorders on its launch. Now it's been overtaken (or should that be undertaken) by the likes of the Sony HDR-TG3, but its...

Sharp touchscreen, compact, and great 1080i video quality

Paltry 8GB Flash memory. Where's the Dolby 5.1 surround treatment

A handy compact treat, the Sony HDR-CX105 provides the high-class Hi-Def video you desire.

Full HD (1080i) Flash memory camcorder with 8GB of storage and a Memory Stick Duo slot. The 10x Carl Zeiss lens is optically stabilised and a zoom mic records sounds in stereo. It measures 107x60x55mm and weighs around 300g with a battery. The good...

Full HD (1080i) Flash memory camcorder with 8GB of storage and a Memory Stick Duo slot. The 10x Carl Zeiss lens is optically stabilised and a zoom mic records sounds in stereo. It measures 107x60x55mm and weighs around 300g with a battery.

Sony’s Smile Shutter makes its cheerful camcorder debut. Activate it and the tiny CX105 will snap a still photo whenever it detects a grin, smirk or sneer – even while its filming. If that’s not enough to get you beaming, cheer yourself up with top...

8GB might sound like a lot of storage but it’s not so much when you’re streaming top quality 1080i video to it at up to 16Mbps. At least there’s a Memory Stick Duo port to accommodate any excess footage. Stereo sound is crystal clear but why do only...

Small is beautiful when it comes to ladies’ bathing costumes and gadgets, and the CX105’s impressive vital statistics are sure to sweep the awards in any technological swimsuit contest. But remember high maintenance honeys rarely come cheap...
