Sony HDR-CX7 Review

Digitaltrends
13 August 2007
  • Conclusion: With the HDR-CX7 Sony has introduced a high-quality HD camcorder that records to flash memory—and it’s a winner for all my nitpicking. The overall video quality is outstanding. The camcorder focuses quickly, smoothes out the shakes thanks to OIS and is a lot of fun to operate. If Sony just took care of a few things, the CX7 would be at the top of camcorder heap, circa Summer 2007.
  • Pros: Quality HD video recording to flash memory; intuitive menu system
  • Cons: No card compatibility with Sony flat panel TVs; poor supplied software

  • Summary: When it comes to price, convenience and storage space, the memory stick format is out trumped by every other recording device on the market. Apart from this one caveat, the HDR-CX7K remains a highly impressive camera that will please anyone who cares about image quality.
  • Pros: Excellent picture quality, 6.1-megapixel stills mode, extremely compact.
  • Cons: Recording times, a bit on the light side.

  • Pros: exzellente Videoaufnahmen, ausgezeichnete Performance, beeindruckende Standfotos, zweckmäßige manuelle Einstellmöglichkeiten, Dockingstation im Lieferumfang
  • Cons: kein Windfilter, USB nur an der Dockingstation, Mini-HDMI-Kabel liegt nicht bei, kein Sucher
