Sony HDR-CX11E HD Camcorder
Sony CX11E HD camcorder : Experience amazing Full HD video and photos with the beautifully styled Sony Handycam HDR-CX11E. The Sony CX11E is the world’s first ever camcorder to feature Smile Shutter. This Sony technology automatically captures crisp 7.6 megapixel photos when someone smiles. There’s no need to press the shutter button or interrupt the action: it’s great for spontaneously capturing relaxed, moments while you’re recording. In ‘Dual Capture’ mode, stills are captured whenever someone smiles during movie recording. Switching Smile Shutter to ‘Always On’ mode can even grab photos while you’re in record standby - whether you’re in movie or photo mode - so there’s no chance of missing that smile between takes.|
Sony CX11E HD camcorder
The Sony HDR-CX11E camcorder delivers stunning high resolution, low noise HD pictures thanks to its ClearVid CMOS sensor with Exmor derived technology. Sparkling Full HD video and 5.1 surround sound is recorded on removable ‘Memory Stick’ PRO Duo media (up to 85 min with supplied 4GB ‘Memory Stick’, or 5 hrs 55 mins with 16GB optional ‘Memory Stick’, LP mode).
Sony Smile Sensitivity
‘Smile Sensitivity’ can be adjusted to recognise anything from a gentle smile to a beaming grin. Priority can also be set to recognise children or adult’s faces. Smile Shutter is teamed with Face Detection that automatically fine-tunes focus, exposure and colour balance for great-looking videos and photos of friends and family.

10.2 effective megapixels
Powered by the high-speed BIONZ processor, D-range Optimiser technology automatically adjusts exposure and contrast to maximise shadows and highlight detail with tricky high-contrast scenes.

5.1 channel surround sound
Image quality like no other is matched by superb 5.1 channel surround sound, with a zoom microphone function to minimise distracting background noises when images are zoomed in. Shots are viewed in exquisite detail on the 2.7-inch Clear Photo LCD Plus widescreen touch-panel that displays video and photos with superb contrast, even when you’re viewing outdoors in bright sunlight.
