The Sony DCR-SX40 4GB Handycam PAL Camcorder is a great option for the budget minded. Not only is the SX40 easy on your budget, but it records to flash memory, meaning that there’s no need to buy extra recording media. There is, of course, the option to use Sony’s own Memory Stick PRO Duo media, should you need extra recording space or simply want the easy transfer that Memory Stick media provides. Flash memory lends itself well to Internet sharing through email or social media sites.

The DCR-SX40 comes with a Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens that features an impressive 60x optical zoom that's perfect for clearly capturing your child on the soccer field. Other features, like the 2.7" wide touch panel LCD, SteadyShot image stabilization, and the Easy Handycam Button work together to make shooting a breeze.

The SX40 is an easy to use camcorder that fits every budget.
