Sony announced three new high-end camcorders at the CES tech show—the CX730 (no internal memory), CX740 (32 GB) and CX760 (96 GB). We've got our hands on the CX740, which films Full HD 1080/50p video and comes loaded with a high-performance image stabiliser—possibly the best system on the market right now, in fact. When unboxing the CX740, you can immediately tell that this is a top-notch camcorder. The finish is excellent and the product feels sturdy and well-made—Sony's reputation as a high-end manufacturer is clearly warranted when you see products like this. That said, the CX740 doesn't come cheap. The body is made from a combination of textured plastic and magnesium around the lens, which explains why at 655 grammes, this camcorder is a little on the heavy side. Each socket and connection is covered by its own shutter, and all of these are easy to open. Plus, a lens hood is supplied, which attaches to the 52 mm screw thread to keep glare and reflections at bay while also protecting the lens. The viewfinder can be angled to make it easier to line up shots. Alternatively, you can use the 3-inch 921,000-pixels LCD. This is an excellent-quality screen, boasting high brightness levels and two built-in speakers.
