Overpriced proprietary batteries

John Adams, Amazon
23 August 2006
  • Summary: This camcorder may seem like a decent deal... but by the time you add one battery (which is pretty much a minimum, since the battery life is so short), and a charger (no... the camcorder really doesn't come with a charger) you add 25% to the price. Make that two batteries and a charger (the ideal kit) and you almost double the price. Without buying the charger, you are forced to use the camcorder as the charger. This is very inconvenient.

Don't buy it if you use a Mac

G. S. Pita, Amazon
8 May 2006
  • Summary: It does not support FireWire connection and you can't edit images captured with the 405 directly in your Mac, using iMovie or FinalCut. This information was not clear in the pre-sales available materials from Sony by the time this review was written. You can't use the USB connection to import your raw images to iMovie.
