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. It inherits its other components such as a 60x optical zooms lens, and a touchscreen display. More importantly, this camcorder provides 720p high-definition video capture, as well as HD still image capture. Plus there’s a 2000x digital zoom for users seeking precision. Another signature feature is Direct Copy, a new Sony technology that allows users to move footage directly from the camera to any external HDD without relying on a PC.
