One customer mentioned in their reviews that the Sony HDR-CX410 was compact. Two years ago Expertreviews.co.uk said on expert website Expert Reviews “The Sony CX410VE is a fairly compact Full HD camcorder.” in their Sony HDR-CX410 review but in spite of that they gave the Sony HDR-CX410 a score of 3 stars.

Medium sensor size video cameras that have been around for a comparable time to the HDR-CX410 have screen sizes of between 1.5" and 4", and the average screen size is 2.8". At 3 inches, the HDR-CX410 has a quite large screen size compared to most of the other similar spec camcorders that were released more than two years ago.

9 Reasons Against

Poor Connectivity

One person wrote that it was not wifi compatible. Expert Reviews wrote “No Wi-Fi built in (yet available as optional extra), focus slower to adjust when chnaging subjects mid recording than others here”.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most medium sensor size video cameras that have been around for more than two years do not have an interchangeable lens. The Sony HDR-CX410 is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the HS900, or the HDC-SD90 both from Panasonic or the CamOne Fly Cam One which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Heavy

Across all the medium sensor size video cameras that have been available for a similar time to the HDR-CX410 the weights range from 76g to 2.8kg, and the average weight is 320g. With a weight of 320 grams, the HDR-CX410 is one of the heavier medium sensor size video cameras that have been around for a similar time to the HDR-CX410 amongst medium sensor size video cameras of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 320g weight video cameras currently available including the Canon Vixia HF M32, or the Sony HDR-PJ260 (£417.00) which has better reviews.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most video cameras of a comparable age and spec to the HDR-CX410 are not 3D compatible. The HDR-CX410 is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Video cameras which are 3D compatible that might also be worth looking at include the HDC-SD90, the HDC-Z10000E, or the HDC-Z10000 (£1,797.41) all from Panasonic which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a Night Mode

The Sony HDR-CX410 does not have a night mode, although it is worth noting that most of the other medium sensor size video cameras that have been around for around the same time as the HDR-CX410 also do not have a night mode.

We compared all the other camcorders which also have a night mode to this video camera and we think the Panasonic HDC-SD90, or the Sony HDR-PJ330 (£312.11) which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a built-in projector to this video camera and we think the Aiptek ProjectorCam C25 (£197.17), or the Sony HDR-PJ240 (£275.28) is also worth considering.
