About Sony

Sony leads the camcorder industry in market share and offers the largest model selection of standard- and high-definition models, some of which have recently topped our Ratings. Sony more recently introduced a new line of inexpensive Bloggie pocket camcorders. Consumer models are known as Handycams. It no longer offers tape-based camcorders and has recently added SD/SDHC media card compatibility to its traditional proprietary Memory Stick compatibility.
