Introduction

With an MSRP of $2295, the AG-HMC40 is one of the cheapest and smallest professional camcorders on the market. Its features and controls may be lacking compared to the other pro models we've reviewed, but its low price—along with its ability to record to regular SD/SDHC memory cards—makes it an intriguing product.
