Sony HDR-CX410VE review


Good connections, but video quality could be better and we're surprised there's no Wi-Fi

Sony HDR-CX410VE review


Camcorders are as fashionable as lard right now – so pity the hipsters that'll miss out on the Sony CX410VE's full-fat video powers.

Out-zoomed by some rivals ; Highlights can overexpose

A brilliant camcorder for enthusiastic amateurs and low-budget semi-pros

Sony Handycam HDR-CX410VE review: Solidly featured but Wi-Fi is an optional extra


Physically weightier than some others, the otherwise solidly featured Sony drops a star in offering Wi-Fi only as an optional extra

Sony HDR-CX410VE


The zoom range is excellent particularly when recording in a confined space

Even when using the largest diameter lens hood that I posses I still experience some vignetting from the anti-shake mechanism

Sony HDR-CX410VE


Colours are vibrant, zoom is very good, no tripod needed until full zoom,easier to carry than previous Sony camcorder I owned. Very pleased indeed

only minor point is that SD card is not provided with it when purchased. Battery life would be better if longer
