Sony Handycam DCR-SX65
Released February, 2011
The Pros:Compact and light design easy to tuck away in a purse. Takes good enough still photos for vacation pictures, don't need a separate still camera. Video and stills are sharp and clear.
The Cons:Poor light-gathering ability in low light conditions. Battery tends to run out fairly quickly.
The Sony Handycam DCR-SX65 is one of three flash memory-based digital camcorders (DCR-SX85, DCR-SX65 and DCR-SX45) released together in early 2011. Unlike the DCR-SX45, which offers no internal memory whatsoever, the Handycam DCR-SX65 features 4GB of onboard storage, as well as a plethora of expansion options like SD/SDHC/SDXC.
