Sony Handycam HDR-CX160 Camcorder Review
Follows up last year’s model nicely, but doesn’t really make any big steps forward.
The Handycam HDR-CX160 is a small, entry-level HD camcorder from Sony that retails for $499. The camcorder is an update of last year's HDR-CX150, and we were impressed by the additions and enhancements Sony made to the new model, which include a 1080/60p record mode, 30x optical zoom lens, and a 3-inch touchscreen LCD.
