Sony Handycam DCR-SX65 (Silver)

 

The Handycam DCR-SX series is Sony's flash-memory-based standard-definition ultracompact camcorder. It's made up of three models that differ only by storage amounts: the SX45 has no internal memory; the SX65 has 4GB built in; and the SX85 has 16GB of...

The Sony Handycam DCR-SX45, SX65, and SX85 are easy-to-use ultracompact camcorders with good active electronic image stabilization and a built-in USB cable for quick uploads.

The DCR-SX45, SX65, and SX85 produce very soft and noisy video with noticeable fringing on subjects even at small sizes. There are no mic or headphone jacks, and the electronic image stabilization won't help you with the lens fully extended.

Sony's Handycam DCR-SX45, SX65, and SX85 standard-definition camcorders pack a megazoom lens at a reasonable price; one look at the standard-definition video, though, and you might regret not spending a bit more for an HD model.

"This is a Good Video Camcorder. One Of The Best."

 

This is the best Camcorder i have ever owned. I use mine for my scooter movies i do at skatparks take a look on my videos how good it is www.youtube.com/user/Dylnb

The camcorder has a 360o rotating touchscreen to record yourself or a movie, there is also a 2000x Digital Zoom & 60x Optical Zoom.

There is no way to turn down the volume on the camera when watching video

Great camera/video recorder. Very easy to use!

 

Great buy for someone looking for an easy to operate camera/video recorder. Small, easy to use, what more could you want? Well HD pic quality would be nice, but if you REALLY want that just buy a more expensive camera/video recorder

one button click from camera to video. 3" LCD touchscreen, Made with the user in mind. when in video mode has a button to push to take a picture without switching over to camera mode. Just an all around joy to use! Great picture quality to. The zoom is re

Not HD! doesn't have away to hook up an hdmi cord. Need a tri-pod for the image stabilizer to work when zoomed way out, but its that way with all camecorders

Sony DCR-SX65 SD 4GB Flash Memory Camcorder, Black

 

I just purchased brand new sony dcr sx65 from Buy.com. Camera is light weight but photo and video quality is poor and grainy when you take indoor. Built in light is too low and dim and doesn't help at all. Touch screen really useless, it makes you...
