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.

Great Size

  • Summary: I received this camcorder for Christmas. I don't think the pictures are all that great but I am shooting with a digital SLR I would not leave your cameras at home. In watching the playback of what I have filmed it seems like the object does come in and out of focus sometimes. Even though tapes will give you the best picture I am sick of tapes! I had originally wanted a hard drive but when i saw the size of them I decided to go with the Flash Memory.

Great Camera...still waiting for editing capabilities on Mac

Steven T. Chinowsky, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this camera for a month now. I actually bought it to film our 20 month old. Seemed like HD was the way of the future as we have a 50 inch plasma at home and want our memories to be in 1080i. The Good - Amazing picture quality, very easy to use, small and easy to handle and plenty of recording time with an 8 gig flash card. 5.1 audio seems cool if you can get it to work on your system.

Impressive.....

ZIM "Zim", Amazon

  • Summary: Pretty impressive camera. The HD recording and playback is astonishing. As noted in some other reviews, good light is a requirement. Poor lighting will leave you with a grainy picture which is a little disappointing. This seems to be an issue with most of the HD camcorders out there so it wasn't a big issue for me. Still far better than SD cameras. The ability to record to Memory Stick is awesome.
