Owned this camcorder for several years. Listen closely.

  • Summary: I bought this camcorder for about $600 used, several years ago (and it was still $2000 new back then), like brand new. I feel like I got my money's worth exactly to this day. There is no good reason this camera should still cost $2000. Let me explain. CONS: First of all, the "Image Stabilization" is completely nonexistent. Do not be deceived.

HD Quo Vadis - format trouble - mediocre quality.

Max J. Pucher "Max J. Pucher", Amazon

  • Summary: This camcorder has quite a few drawbacks. It is not true HD as claimed and it is visible compared to others. The camera gets very hot - the harddisk. The connection to the PC and Mac is easy via USB but the video files can not be easily used in PC editing software as a harddisk recorder seems to suggest. There is a mess of XMl control files that make no practical sense whatsoever and I work in IT. In any case I want to shot videos and not program. Not very userfriendly.

User Review

Ron Simpson, Cnet.co.uk

  • Summary: The review provided by the cnet team is fairly accurate. Having filmed 6 hours of HDD not much is useable as it was shot from boats, buses, trains and planes whilst on holiday. The bundled software is the worst software bundle I have ever seen it is inadequate in the extreme. They even have the temerity to ask you to spend more to upgrade the software to a full package, why? would a full package of rubbish be better than a half pack?.
  • Pros: Great handling and light to carry. For tripod work its great.
  • Cons: Hand held and moving shots are useless. OIS does not work.

Problemi di editing video con l' HD7

giva1302, Ciao
19 November 2008
  • Excerpt: Il problema grosso che ho avuto con questa camera è in fase di montaggio!!! Infatti sia con Studio 12 che con il programmino dato in dotazione della CyberLink prelevando dall'HDD della HD7 i fles .TOD si ha una notevole incongruenza tra il tempo in cui si schiaccia il tasto REC per terminare la registrazione di un clip e l'effettiva fine del file stesso, per cui ci si ritrova con circa un secondo di registrazione in più, registrazione che ovviamente ...
  • Pros: nessuno
  • Cons: molti
