Sony DCR-SX60 review

 

The Sony DCR-SX60 is a standard-definition camcorder that costs more than £250, making it something of a rarity. In an era where high-def camcorders cost the same or less, what can the Sony DCR-SX60 offer to justify its premium price tag?

The Sony DCR-SX60 is an attractive looking standard-definition camcorder that does a reasonable job in the imaging stakes. That said, there are better SD options on the market that cost around the same price.

Sony DCR-SX60 camcorder

 

A standard-def, flash memory-based Sony camcorder with a 60x optical zoom

60x optical zoom, attractive design, user-friendly interface

Struggled in low lighting, skimps on extra features, a bit too pricey

Sony Handycam DCR-SX60 Camcorder Review

 

For first-time camcorder users that are shopping the standard definition market, the Sony DCR-SX60 (MSRP $369.99) may seem like a compelling choice. It has easy touchscreen navigation, a great auto mode, and just a couple options in case you want to...

Great little camcorder

 

This camcorder has many great features, and is very easy to use. The zoom is very good, and the face detection is a remarkable addition! I recommend this camcorder to anyone who wants high quality in a compact, lightweight package.

One of the best Standard Definition camcorders

 

What's Good? When I bought this thing I was surprised by the size of it, it's tiny, light and very portable. It is very simple and intuitive, you just have to open the LCD and push the record button, the camcorder will work alone. It has a very...
