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.

Sony DCR-SR21E


Qué nostalgia el zoom de las videocámaras. O más preciso, qué nostalgia de las videocámaras clásicas. Menos mal que ahí está Sony para recordarnos que “haberlas haylas“.

La pantalla de ambas videocámaras es común también, 2.7 pulgadas, y se acompaña de modo Auto Inteligente para que los equipos ajusten automáticamente los mejores valores para la grabación de vídeo más nítida, sistema SteadyShot, detección facial y...

Videocámara Sony Handycam DCR-SR21


El disco duro integrado de 80GB te permitirá grabar muchas horas de video. Su zoom óptico de 67x te hará disfrutar de las grabaciones con mayor distancia, casi como si estuvieras ahí

Solamente te ofrece una resolución de 720x480 pixeles, que es HQ, no HD

Dirigido a quienes buscan una videocámara para llevar de vacaciones y por lo mismo, que ofrezca una gran capacidad de almacenamiento. Sin dejar de lado la combinación de un diseño portable y un amplio rango de zoom.

Cámara de video Sony Handycam (DCR-SR20)


Integra un estabilizador de imagen para que las imágenes no salgan movidas; además de una pantalla LCD de 2.7 pulgadas. Ofrece grabación de sonido en formato estéreo Dolby Digital

La batería sobresale un poco en la parte trasera de la cama. Podría grabar video en alta resolución

Recomendada a quienes gustan grabar video en formato digital y quieren un equipo a un precio accesible. Su tecnología es sencilla.

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...

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!
