Unlike the other two models, the DCR-SX45 offers absolutely zero internal memory, which means a memory card is required to capture and store any content. Speaking of which, the camcorder supports 720p video footage and HD still images, as well as stereo audio. One notable feature is Direct Copy, which lets users move footage directly from the camera to any external HDD without relying on a PC.
