Sony HDR-CX6 review


This £750 SD-based model is easily the smallest HD camcorder on test.

User-friendly menus ; Touchscreen functionality ; Strong audio

Disappointing HD performance ; Pricey

Sony HDR-CX6 review


Sony and Panasonic are going toe to toe in the battle to make the world's smallest HD camcorder, with the tiny CX6 upstaged by Panny's even sleeker SD5. So is it game over for the current smallest Sony, or is there more to this contest than just size?...

Fetch the hose! Our tiny Panasonic SD5 and mini Sony CX6 HD 'corders are scrapping again. Time to settle this fight once and for all

A tiny package, great footage and a worthy stills performance make this the ultimate holiday cam – we just wish it could be a tad cheaper

Sony Handycam HDR-CX6EK review


On the one hand, tapeless camcorders such as this Sony Handycam HDR-CX6EK give product designers the freedom to make smaller, sleeker camcorders. On the other hand, we've yet to see a model that records in the AVCHD format, as this one does, match the...

Excellent video and performance ; Impressive still photos for a camcorder ; Adequate manual controls ; Docking station included

No wind filter ; USB on dock only, not on camcorder ; Doesn't include mini HDMI cable ; No viewfinder

If Mini-DVDs appeal to you more than flash-memory cards, Sony also makes the Handycam HDR-UX7E, which can record AVCHD video onto 8cm DVDs and is very similar to this model, though not quite as small in size

Sony HDR-CX6EK Camcorder Review


Stylish design meets exceptional picture quality in the Sony HDR-CX6EK – the smallest, lightest Sony HD Handycam. Packed with the latest Sony technology this camcorder records up to almost 3 hours of High Definition movies the optional 8GB Memory Stick.

Use the HDMI connector to watch your HD movies on any HD-ready TV in beautiful depth and clarity. To save and store your videos on your PC, simply connect the HDR-CX6EK via the USB 2.0 High speed connection.

Sony HDR-CX6


Sony's latest Handycam is likely to be worshipped by audovisual aesthetes everywhere with its gorgeous glossy black looks and simple, but impressive design.

Attractive, and handles well, Generous features, A good price for a HD camcorder

No external mic input, No viewfinder

The CX6 is great to look at and has all the functionality that you expect from Sony. The footage we shot was without compromise, although the HD footage didn't have the 'shine' we were expecting. At this price point, though, Sony has delivered a great cam
