The Sony Handycam DCR-SX44 is a mid-cost camcorder. This camcorder has a professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with a powerful 60x optical zoom (and 2000x digital zoom), allowing it to capture extremely tight shots even from far away. The built-in LED video light of the Handycam DCR-SX44 helps with shooting in low-light situations. You can frame your shots and see what you have shot with the 2.7 inch 2.3 megapixel touch panel display. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles. You can also access menus with this display. While it has 4GB of embedded memory, the Direct Copy feature of this camcorder allows you to easily transfer and store video onto an external hard drive with no PC. The Sony Handycam DCR-SX44 camcorder comes with a one year parts warranty.
