The Scene Mode automatically selects the most suitable shutter speed and aperture for the shooting location and situation.
The powerful iA (Intelligent Auto) function senses the shooting conditions and automatically makes the settings and activates functions that will deliver optimal results. iA does the bothersome settings for you and makes it easy to capture beautiful, well-focused images.

The focus also prioritizes the faces, and skin tones are smoothed for up to 15 faces at once. Faces are bright and recognizable.
HDC-SD40 can record stills with 2.1 megapixels. Also, when playing back the moving pictures you shot, you can capture 2.1-megapixel still images of any scene you want. The camcorder lets you enjoy high quality in both motion and still images.
