Easy Camcorder
31 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Like every camcorder, the Sony DCR-HC65 has its pros and cons. This model sports one of the best LCD monitors on the market -- a 3.5-inch color LCD with 123,000 pixels. It totes a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens and also has decent manual and automatic controls. However, the Sony DCR-HC65 succumbs to competitors in other areas: its small 1/5-inch CCD with 690,000 pixels, its 10x optical and 120x digital zoom, and its $799.99 retail price tag.
  • Pros: - 3.5 inch LCD, - Focus Ring, - Ease of use
  • Cons: - Manual control options

  • Conclusion: The Sony DCR-HC65 is a solid choice for intermediate videographers, but we've seen better, especially when it comes to shooting scenes with action.
  • Pros: Huge 3.5-inch LCD. Manual focus ring around lens. Headphone jack for monitoring audio.
  • Cons: No audio gain. High-action video and still-image quality were subpar.
