The Sony Handycam DCR-SX60 is a flash memory-based standard-definition megazoom camcorder. It features the same lens, sensor, and video processing as Sony's hard drive-based Handycam DCR-SR47, which CNET has reviewed.
The SX60 has 16GB of internal flash memory for storage as well as a Memory Stick Pro Duo slot and allows users to record video to either. Compared to hard drive-based models, the use of flash memory allows the camcorder to be extremely compact, more energy efficient, and less prone to failure caused by bumps or drops.
If don't need that much internal storage and want to save some money, Sony also offers the SX41 and SX40 with 8GB and 4GB of memory, respectively. The features of the models are otherwise identical to the SX40.
