Sony Handycam HDR-CX760 Camcorder Review$1,499.00
Last year, in our review of the HDR-CX700V from Sony, we dreamed of a future where Sony would actually improve the low light performance of its high-end Handycams. This year, with the HDR-CX760V, that dream has become a reality. The CX760V is not only the strongest consumer camcorder Sony has released in a few years, but it's also one of the most impressive models we've reviewed all year.
The camcorder did everything well in our performance tests. In addition to the improved low light capabilities, the CX760V showed us excellent motion performance, good sharpness, vivid colors in bright light, and low noise levels across the board. The camcorder can shoot 1080/60p video (something Canon Vixia models won't allow), as well as 60i and 24p frame rates. The one downside of the camcorder may be its bulky design that we didn't find all that comfortable, but at least Sony managed to stuff a ton of controls in the CX760V's large body.
With 96GB of internal memory, an electronic viewfinder, and an excellent 10x zoom lens (with great optical image stabilization), the Sony HDR-CX760V's $1299 price tag is certainly justifiable. Yes, we know it is a lot to pay for a consumer camcorder—but if you want top-notch image quality and a model that has all the features you're looking for, then the Sony HDR-CX760V is the model for you.
