DCR-SX40/L
The ultra-compact Sony® DCR-SX40 Handycam® camcorder can record video to 4GB of embedded
memory or removable Memory Stick Duo™ or Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media. A professional-quality
Carl Zeiss® Vario-Tessar® lens delivers sharp, high resolution images and its 60x optical zoom helps
you capture extreme close-ups from far away.
4GB embedded memory:
4GB of embedded memory can
record and store up to approximately 2
hours 55 minutes of video footage (LP
mode).
60X Optical / 2000X Digital Zoom:
Ideal for sporting events, wildlife, or
distance shooting, 60X optical zoom
brings you closer to the action, so you
can capture extremely tight shots, even
from far away. In addition, Digital
Zoom Interpolation means that extreme
digital zooming (up to 2000X) is
clearer, with less distortion than
previous types of digital zooms.
Professional-quality Carl Zeiss® Vario-
Tessar® Lens:
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.

new level of flexibility of capturing and
transferring your video footage and
digital photos from the camcorder to
compatible viewing devices. Record to
4GB embedded flash memory or

Memory Stick PRO Duo™ media (sold
separately). You can even select from
various dubbing functions to easily
copy video or still images from the
embedded flash media to the Memory
Stick PRO Duo™ media -- without using

Accumulation Diode) CCD imager with
