Excerpt: The HDR-CX700V is Sony’s top-of-the-line consumer camcorder, and it’s fair to say that this sucker is loaded. Along with being able shoot 1920 x 1080 HD video at 60p, the HDR-CX700 has a whopping 96GB of internal flash memory and a Memory Stick Duo/SD Memory card slot if you want to add storage.
Pros: Also snaps 12-MP photos; 96GB of internal storage will let you record up to 40 hours of HD footage; advanced focus and exposure adjustments including zebra and peaking will make you feel like a pro; Touch tracking focus lets you lock in on your subject.
Cons: The USB cord tucked into the hand grip looks and feels dorky; Night Shot mode lets you record in darkness but everything is G.I. Joe green; Sony’s video editing software is not Mac-compatible.
