The World's Lightest 169 g * Ultra-Compact SD Card Camcorder with Low Power Consumption for Long Time Recording

Ultra-compact and weighing only approximately 169g, the HDC-SD40 is the world's lightest* camcorder and has a stylish design. It can be carried anywhere to record high-quality videos at anytime. It does not take up much room in a bag and is light on the arms even after recording for long periods of time.

The mode has achieved the low power consumption of 2.5 W, allowing it to record continuously for up to 135 minutes**. User can continue recording without worrying about the remaining battery power.

The POWER O.I.S., which uses gyrosensors to detect hand-shake and moves a corrective lens to adjust the optical axis and eliminate blurring, has further evolved. When the camcorder is handheld, it moves slowly at low frequency due to the breathing of the operator or other reasons, no matter how hard the person tries to hold the camcorder steady. While the conventional O.I.S. system could not sufficiently eliminate this low-frequency hand-shake, the POWER O.I.S. is able to correct it about five times more effectively.

Face Detection captures faces beautifully even in dim or backlit scenes. Each of these modes is activated, as required, by simply pressing the iA button. This allows users to capture beautiful, optimized images quickly and easily. Face Detection automatically senses the ambient lighting and adjusts the exposure accordingly. The focus also prioritizes the faces, and skin tones are smoothed for up to 15 faces at once. Faces are bright and recognizable.
