Key Features

  • 4GB of embedded memory can record and store up to approximately 2 hours 55 minutes of video footage (LP mode).
  • 60x optical zoom brings you closer to the action, so you can capture extremely tight shots, even from far away. Digital Zoom Interpolation means that extreme digital zooming (up to 2000x) is clearer, with less distortion than previous types of digital zooms.
  • The Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens is designed specifically for compact camcorders and utilizes precision ground optics to maintain the sharpness and contrast found in larger lenses.
  • Hybrid recording technology delivers a new level of flexibility of capturing and transferring your video footage and digital photos from the camcorder to compatible viewing devices.
  • A 1/8" Advanced HAD (Hole Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with 410K (effective) pixel resolution delivers stunning detail and clarity for exceptional video and still image performance.
  • The DCR-SX40 supports a direct connection to the VRD-P1 DVD burner (sold separately), which allows you to burn DVDs directly from your camcorder without the need for a PC.
  • The 2.7" wide touch panel LCD display provides exceptional viewing clarity with 123K pixels resolution.
  • The display rotates up to 270 degrees for multiple viewing angles, as well as provides sharp, detailed images for monitoring or playback.
  • The convenient touch panel allows easy access to menus and additional functionality such as spot focus and spot metering.
  • Power on your camcorder by simply opening the LCD display.
  • The built-in zoom microphone focuses audio recording on your subjects with the camera's zoom lens, helping memories ring true with clear dialogue and crisp, discrete sounds.
  • Sony Picture Motion Browser software offers a simple, intuitive way to transfer, sort and view your video and still images on your compatible PC.
  • Easily burn a DVD copy of your footage using the supplied PMB (Picture Motion Browser) software. Simply connect the camcorder to your compatible PC via a USB cable and press the One Touch Disc Burn Button.
  • With a press of the Easy Handycam Button, most of the advanced features of the camcorder are "locked out," letting you focus only the buttons essential for recording.
  • Film Roll Index helps you easily find desired scenes in video footage. With this feature, the camcorder previews the beginning of scenes and can create scene indexes set at specified display intervals (3, 6, or 12 seconds and 1 or 5 minutes).
  • Face Index makes it easier than ever to find and play back the right video scene. Using Face Detection technology, Face Index indexes your video footage according to the faces detected in each scene.
  • A USB 2.0 interface provides an easy way to connect your camcorder to a compatible PC for fast transfer of video and still images for editing.
