Easy Camcorder
3 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Although the DCR-HC40, as the top of this year's HC line by Sony, includes an improvement in CCD size and still capabilities from its fellow camcorders, its performance is remarkably similar to the DCR-HC30, which nearly serves to render invalid any advances made by the upgrades. These include a big CCD, at 1/5 inch and 1.07 gross Megapixels, and better still capability, recording to Multimedia card at 1152 x 864.
  • Pros: - LCD quality, - Ease of use, - Decent low light and video quality
  • Cons: - Zooms, - Still options, - Mediocre manual control

Sony Handycam DCR-HC40

CNET
8 September 2004
  • Conclusion: Ce caméscope très maniable est destiné à la famille. Le Sony conviendra particulièrement aux personnes qui ne n'envisagent pas d'utiliser les fonctionnalités avancées. En mode automatique, la qualité des images est d'ailleurs satisfaisante.
