  • 1Description

Four gigabytes of internal flash memory, a 3.0" touch screen LCD, a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens with 70x Extended zoom and more make up the Sony DCR-SX65 Flash Memory Camcorder. Easy on your wallet, this standard definition camera provides functions and features not found on comparable pocket camcorders, while still giving you the option of simple uploading to social media sites.

Other shooting controls include image stabilization for a stable image, Intelligent Auto for automatic scene selection, and Face Detection which ensures everyone in the shot looks their best. Of course, the SX65 has other numerous features meant to make recording your memories hassle-free - Film Roll Index, Direct Copy, and a built-in video all go even further to make your recording a pleasurable process, not drudgery. When you're done shooting the aforementioned editing software - Sony's Picture Motion Browser - helps you finalize your videos in a number of ways, share your video, and archive it.

4GB Embedded Flash Memory
The built-in 4GB embedded flash memory can record up to 2.5 hours of footage (LP mode)
70x Extended Zoom to Get Even Closer to the Action
Extended Zoom works in conjunction with 60x optical zoom to get even closer to the action while maintaining image quality
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens
The professional-quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens is designed specifically for compact camcorders. Precision ground optics help maintain the sharpness and contrast of larger lenses, and SteadyShot image stabilization helps reduce blur caused by camera shake
3.0" Touch-Screen Clear Photo LCD Plus Display (230K)
The 3.0" touch-screen Clear Photo LCD Plus display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 230K pixels resolution. The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback. The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering
SteadyShot Image Stabilization with Active Mode
SteadyShot image stabilization with Active Mode allows for a greater degree of image stabilization over the well known, Sony developed, SteadyShot stabilization that has been used for years, giving you more stable video even when on the move or in low light circumstances
Intelligent Auto - 36 Different Scene Combinations Possible
Intelligent Auto mode goes a step beyond traditional auto modes by analyzing your shot and then automatically selecting the appropriate settings from seven distinct scene modes (36 different combinations possible): Landscape, Backlight, Twilight, Spotlight, Macro, Portait, Tripod
Dolby Digital Stereo Recording with Built-In Zoom Mic
The built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects with the camera's zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds
Face Detection
Face Detection technology recognizes faces and optimizes camera settings for both video and still images, so faces are captured more clearly and skin tones look more natural
Built-In LED Video Light
The DCR-SX65 features an LED light that can assist in low-light situations giving you more flexibility when capturing your video
Built-In USB Cable for Easy File Transfer/Charge
The high-speed, built-in USB 2.0 cable allows for easy connection to your computer without having to remember separate cables. It also fits conveniently into the hand strap so it's out of the way until you need it
Direct Copy to External HDD without PC
Store your memories in a whole new way with the ability to copy videos from your camcorder directly to an external hard disk drive (sold separately), all without a computer.

Includes Sony Picture Motion Browser Software
Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort, and view your video and still images on your compatible PC. In addition, multiple output options let you burn your memories to DVD, as well as take advantage of one click upload to a number of popular video and photo sharing sites
Auto Lens Cover
The automatic lens cover protects the Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens from scratches during transport or while not in use by closing the lens cover automatically when the camera is shut off
Film Roll / Face Index
With Film Roll Index, the camcorder previews the beginning of scenes and creates scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes). Face Index indexes your video footage according to the faces detected in each scene. When it's time to play back video, simply search for what you want by selecting from among the detected faces displayed in the index
