Sony DCR-SX60 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony DCR-SX60 16GB Handycam Camcorder is a great option for the budget minded. Not only is the SX60 easy on your budget, but it records to flash memory, meaning that there's no need to buy extra recording media. There is, of course, the option to use Sony's own Memory Stick PRO Duo media, should you need extra recording space or simply want the easy transfer that Memory Stick media provides. Flash memory lends itself well to Internet sharing through email or social media sites.

The DCR-SX60 comes with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens that features an impressive 60x optical zoom that's perfect for clearly capturing your child on the soccer field. Other features, like the 2.7" wide touch panel LCD, SteadyShot image stabilization, and the Easy Handycam Button work together to make shooting a breeze.

The SX60 is an easy to use camcorder that fits every budget.

Hybrid Recording to 16GB Flash Memory or Memory Stick PRO Duo Media

1/8" Advanced HAD CCD Image Sensor
The 1/8" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD image sensor captures crisp and clear video and still images.
Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens with 60x Optical Zoom
The professional quality Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens features precision ground optics for sharp, true-to-life image capture. The impressive 60x optical zoom captures far off subjects with no loss in image quality.
