"Bad handshake and can have motion blur in sports."

  • Pros: Very good if mounted still on a mono or tri pod. Best in daylight or natural light.
  • Cons: - Don't like the fact that you have to buy a sony chip to use it. Sony flash chips 4x generic brands. Don't like that the battery u get lasts 20 min. Have to buy a new one. Motion blur in sports bad especially when zoomed. Zoom not powerful.

"Small, affordable consumer HD Flash camcorder."

  • Pros: Great range of accessories(lenses, batteries, tri-pods, lights & mics) It is 2.5 yrs. old now, but if you can get one for around 700$ then go for it. AVCHD format works great on my computers. Small and light; fits in your baggy pockets.
  • Cons: Nightshot switch - not actually nightvision but gives the effect of nightvision. Weird. Has no wind-filter. 13 sec. start up. Not really good indoors;u will need lighting Needs mics for you filmmakers out there. USB only through station

Sony HDR-CX7 Camcorder

  • Summary: As much as I love the appearance, build quality, size and comfort of this unit, I can not give it 5 stars. The only issues that bug me are first and foremost the suckie software. I even tried "Ulead Video 11" after trying over and over to work with the stock software. Unlead (despite what they say) is far too complicated, cumbersome and in many ways not compatible. Further, I hate using the dock to connect to my lap top.

Sony HDR-CX7 Camcorder

  • Summary: I chose Sony HDR CX7 over Panasonic HDC-SD5, Samsung HMX10A and Canon HG10 after an extensive research. I want a camcorder that can record both in HD and SD format, using Flash memory card, and taking decent still pictures. The reasons why I bought it are listed in THE GOOD section. After using it for 3 weeks, I hate it in some areas. They're listed in THE BAD and the UGLY SECTION. THE GOOD BEAUTIFUL VIDEO QUALITY It records beautiful and sharp video even in SD format.

Excellent Video quality, great product.

Mauricio Hollo "Dops Morts", Amazon

  • Summary: It has a great quality for video and good quality for photos (6mp)... Didn't got a good quality in photos taked when still recording Videos and can take only 3 pictures in this mode at 4.6mp . You should buy a secondary battery if planning to film for more then 2h... Sony NPFH100 H Series is a great choice for that. I miss in this product other away to see images other than lcd but only for pictures, for movie i think it's fine. The menu is simple and easy to use.
