Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 (Black) Reviewed on May 9, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 (Black)
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 9 reviews

The Bottom Line: Typical for their price class, the no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 produce generally subpar HD video, but if you're not picky you'll probably be fine. The CX130 is the best buy of the three, as long as you go cheap on the memory card. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 8.8 oz, 2.1 in, 2.2 in, 30 x x Zoom lens - 2.1 mm - 63 mm - F/1.8-3.4, Sony Handycam HDR-CX130 - Camcorder - Flash card, 4.5 in

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ430 Reviewed on January 8, 2013 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-PJ430

The Bottom Line: Despite a perceived lull in the camcorder market, Sony announces 10 models at CES. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 12.2 oz, 2.4 in, 30 x x, Zoom lens - 1.9 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-4.0 G, 2.6 in, - Camcorder, Sony Handycam HDR-PJ430V - Flash card, 4.8 in

  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: Typical for their price class, the no-frills Sony Handycam HDR-CX130, CX160, and XR160 produce generally subpar HD video, but if you're not picky you'll probably be fine. The CX130 is the best buy of the three, as long as you go cheap on the memory card. Read review

Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 Reviewed on October 3, 2011 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.0 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 4 reviews

The Bottom Line: You're paying a couple hundred extra for the projector in the otherwise frills-free Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 over its identical twin, the CX160. But if you regularly show off your vacation videos in the homes of friends and family then it's worth it. Read review

Specs: CMOS, 10.9 oz, 30 x x Zoom lens - 2.1 mm - 63 mm - F/1.8-3.4, Sony Handycam HDR-PJ10 - Camcorder - Flash card, 2.3 in, 2.6 in, 5 in

Sony Handycam HDR-CX430V (Black)

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 11.3 oz, 30 x x Zoom lens - 1.9 mm - 57 mm - F/1.8-4.0 G, 2.3 in, 2.6 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX430V - Camcorder - Flash card, - Internal flash memory, 4.8 in

Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V Reviewed on May 26, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.9 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 10 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V fares well compared with the competition, though its video could be a bit sharper and the interface less cumbersome. Unless you absolutely need to store a lot of video on the camcorder--which I don't suggest--or if have large hands that could benefit from the extra grip that the hard drive provides, the CX550V is a better deal than its hard-disk-based sibling. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, Built-in flash, 15.5 oz, 5.6 in, 2.6 in, 2.9 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 3.8 mm - 38 mm - F/1.8-3.4, Sony Handycam HDR-CX550V - Camcorder - Flash card

Sony DCR-DVD650
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.0 stars Good
      Overall score: 6.6 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.0 stars out of 7 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 offers an all-in-one, on-the-go way to capture standard-def video and burn it to a DVD, but hard-disk-drive and flash-memory models are otherwise a better option. Read review

Specs: Advanced HAD CCD, 13.8 oz, 5.1 in, 2.2 in, 3.5 in, Carl Zeiss 60 x x Zoom lens - 1.8 mm - 108 mm - F/1.8-6.0, Sony Handycam DCR-DVD650 - Camcorder - Flash card, - DVD

Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 Reviewed on February 12, 2009 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-CX12
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 8 reviews

The Bottom Line: As the flash-memory-based equivalent of the HDR-SR11, the Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 serves up the same pleasing performance and quality as its hard-drive cousin. Read review

Specs: ClearVid CMOS, Built-in flash, 15.9 oz, 3.3 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX12 - Camcorder - Flash card, 3 in, 5.4 in, Carl Zeiss 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.9 mm - 58.8 mm - F/1.8-3.1

Sony HDR-CX500V Reviewed on February 24, 2010 Check prices
Product overview
Sony HDR-CX500V
  • CNET Editor rating:
    3.5 stars Very good
      Overall score: 7.6 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.5 stars out of 5 reviews

The Bottom Line: The geotagging capability remains mostly a novelty, but the top-notch video quality of the Sony Handycam HDR-CX500V and HDR-CX520V make them worthy options. Because internal memory is overpriced, the HDR-XR500V is the better deal of the two, though you may want to opt for a 2010 model that supports SD cards rather than Sony's Memory Stick. Read review

Specs: Exmor R CMOS, 12 megapixels, Built-in flash, 13 oz, 2.6 in, 2.4 in, 5.2 in, Sony Handycam HDR-CX500V - Camcorder - Flash card, 12 x x Zoom lens - 5.5 mm - 66 mm - F/1.8-3.4

      Overall score: 6.8 (3.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 2.5 stars out of 5 reviews

The Bottom Line: While it's a perfectly serviceable HD camcorder, the Sony Handycam HDR-XR100 should deliver a little more of everything for the money. Read review

Specs: Exmor CMOS, 11.6 oz, Carl Zeiss 10 x x Zoom lens - 3.2 mm - 32 mm - F/1.8-2.2, 2.7 in, Sony Handycam HDR-XR100 - Camcorder - Hard disk drive, - Flash card, 2.7 in, 5.1 in
