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

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. Your camcorder can also access videos stored on the external hard drive for playback on your TV, allowing you to utilize the camcorder's handy playback features
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
