Sony Handycam DCR-SX40E

 

The slim Handycam SX-series is fashioned on portability and style. The SX-series features a high-magnification 60x zoom lens to capture faraway subjects as well as one-touch disc burn.

You can expand your storage via a Memory Stick PRO Duo slot.

You can only take 4 megapixel stills which is a bit of a let down.

A great camera for the price.

 

I bought this camera for a vacation. So far I have not given it much use but from what I see of it and what little I have used it it seems to be a great deal for the price.

Great Product

 

I'm still learning to use it, but I got some great video of deer under a yard light at night & a large flock of turkey durning the day. Still have a problem with keeping it on target because it is so light, quite unlike my old VHS that weighs 3 pounds...

Another GREAT PRODUCT!

 

A great price for a feature filled product. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I plan to order a spare battery and carrying bag soon. This videocam will be great for the Caribbean cruise my wife and I have planned for November!

Returned

 

Video looked fuzzy had a lot of good options but if the video sucks it's not for me my sons 100.00 camcorder has better video. I didn't get it from tiger. I have always had good luck with tiger fast shipping and if something is wrong it is fixed fast.

Great value

 

For the price it takes great video. Easy to use and download digital files. On screen menu is difficult to use for set-up. Had hard time getting response.
