Use with 37mm lens protector

Steven R Fellenz, Amazon
13 December 2011
  • Summary: I love this camera and the video quality. I just received this camera last week -- upgrading from a Sony SD camera that recorded SD/stereo to this one which I can now record in 1080/60p with 5.1 dolby digital sound! I just wanted people to be aware that if they purchase the 37mm lens protector Sony VF37CPKB Polarizing Filter Kit the included lens hood that came with the camera will no longer attach (there are not many pictures of this camcorder showing the included lens...

First Impressions

TigerTales, Amazon
13 December 2011
  • Summary: This is not a comprehensive review, but rather some first impressions. I have edited this review a couple times, since editing and playback support has been improved since my initial review. I am not an expert with video; I'm just a geeky dad that wants to get the best possible video of my kid being cute. I was upgrading from a 4 year old Sony HDR-SR1. The HDR-CX700V is a really nice upgrade, but it didn't blow me away. Perhaps my expectations were too high.

Great Camcorder - Beware Viewfinder

MikeM, Amazon
10 November 2011
  • Summary: Bought this camcorder to replace HDR-SR11. Had to have viewfinder. Camcorder excellent overall but viewfinder is borderline useless. It has a micro wheel for diopter adjustment (viewfinder focus). This wheel moves anytime you open the viewfinder or move the camera. Result is you must use your shooting hand to manually refocus viewfinder EVERY time you use it. I spoke to Sony and they said I had to mail in camcorder for their techs to look at it.

I love my HDR-CX700V

shopper, Amazon
9 November 2011
  • Summary: Always buy your camcorder from trust sites. Don't buy from those sites linked buy NexTag such as AJRichies, buyherephoto, certifieddigital etc... The cheap price was bet for your personal and your credit card information only, they don't even have the product. I ordered from three different sites but the same customer service spoke me and told me the same thing. If I want, they can order the overseas' model for me which will take 3-4 weeks. That's phony...

Great camera......... if you can buy at a discounted price.

piniongear, Ebay
3 August 2011
  • Summary: I was able to purchase my brand new HDR-CX700VE on Ebay for a greatly discounted price. It was new in a sealed box for $1075. Don't ask me how it sold for such a discount but that price is a fair price for this camcoder in my view. The CX700 is a great camera and I would rate it a 5 star if not for the normal price on it of $1295. That is too much money, so it gets a star subtracted. My camera has worked without a single flaw....except one.

An sich ein tolles Gerät

Spree, Amazon
6 February 2012
  • Summary: Leider gehen die Farben vor allem in den Schatten sehr schnell ins Bläuliche oder Petrolfarbene über, was ein leichter, aber trotzdem wahrnehmbarer Farbstich ist. Für den Preis müsste die Farbabstimmung eigentlich besser sein.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Подкупило наличие разных форматов для записи начиная с Mpeg2 что удобно для записи на DVD ну и конечно 1920*1080/50Р. Отличная бленда - камера с ней смотрится намного серьезнее что важно для клиентов (занимаюсь свадьбами и т.д.) В общем хорошая камера потраченные 40 т.р. не жаль но её реальная цена около 35т.р.
  • Pros: Достаточно удобная в обращении, понятное меню,вполне приличные фото 12мп. без вспышки на улице(с вспышкой часто засвечивает кадр). Ну и качество видео конечно не стоит на месте - шумов незаметно даже в темноте. Хорошая матрица. Очень широкий объектив 26,3 мм даже как-то непривычно (например: кошка находящаяся в 30 см полностью убирается в кадр)Отличный оптический стабилизатор.
  • Cons: Долго включается около 5 сек. (предыдущая SR65 включалась аш за 1 сек.), немного бледноватая картинка (не хватает насыщенности и контраста)На дисплее камеры видео смотрится гораздо лучше чем на компьютере. Кольцо фокусировки не удобное. Полностью автоматическая сама включается (при открывании дисплея или видоискателя) и сама выключается. Маловато прочих настроек

Supercamcorder

  • Summary: Der Camcorder hält das, was die Beschreibung verspricht. Gestochen scharfe HD Videos- und Bilder. Muss mich allerdings noch einarbeiten, um alle Vorzüge voll zu nutzen. Empfehlenswert!
