Summary: I have this Camcorder I most said wow the image is amazing and the night vision is 10=++++++ I used this for Paranormal investigations and I love it Ghost Adventure Love it too this is the Camera they used on the shows.the price over 1,200.00 I think is fine is worth it but not anybody can afford to buy this camera I recommend it.you wont be disappointed.
Summary: The HDR-CX700v camcorder is my first digital HD video camera and I like it a lot. The video editing software I use with it is Sony Vegas Pro 12 and I prefer to shoot my videos in 1080p/60p (since the video is much smoother). But Sony Vegas does not export to this frame rate, resolution and format. So I have to stick with 1080p/24p for now until Sony makes a video editing software that exports 1080p/60p without changing the resolution, frame rate and format.
Great Camera, stolen from Gaylord Texan Hotel on 30th Oct 2012

Summary: This was a great camera, with good video facilities. Unfortunately someone stole ours from the Gaylord Texan Hotel. It had photos and film of our daughter that was never backed up. If you come across the following serial number S01-0122116 then please get in touch. We are offering a substantial reward if the film and picture remain. We only want the pictures and film back as these were priceless.
Summary: I upgraded from the Sony 150 to this and love it. The built in sync cable is so much better, the build in wide lens is also great. I film almost every day with it and have no complaints about it. I use it for work and the quality is fantastic. It is small and light weight and that is what I need for what I do.
Summary: This is a short review because if you have come to REVIEWS, you know a bit about this camcorder already so I won't waste time with SPECS, etc. PROS: Unlike any other camcorder I have ever owned. I buy a new camcorder every year and the Sony CX700 is by far the best picture obtained possible. Low light, night and day. Exceptional detail. So pristine is the picture that you'd almost think you were in a 3D effect.
Summary: I've been doing research for almost 2 months before I place the order on amazon. I had Canon HF G10 & Panansonic TM-900 in my mind and was hesitating on which is the best to get. I went to local electronic shop(Fry's) to see how these 3 camcorders work and what the feeling is when holding them on my hand. Canon was cool on its performance and feels sturdy, however it was too big and pricy.

Summary: I have been using the Sony HDR-CX700V with a tripod mounted on the deck of two flat-bottomed boats (16' and 24' Carolina Skiffs). For initial tests the camcorder was positioned so as to include the bow of the boats in the frame for reference and both boats were run in varying wave and wake conditions in the St. Johns River, Florida.
Summary: In short, this camcorder is one of the best purchases. Only qualm is with Sony's customer service. They are very rude when you talk to them just to even know about the product. I have been a very regular consumer for Sony products for ages now. For such a costly camcorder, they should throw in NP-FV70 battery as a standard or at least give the camcorder bag free. Image quality is very good.
Summary: I am a professional DP, and this camera is awesome. It's the first small HD camera that I can shoot a sunset with. It can handle being pointed at the sun, without the nasty star pattern that every other small HD camera that I have used. I have used the new Canon ProHD sensor cameras, and the Panasonic HD-TM700, SD600. The Panasonic cameras are the sharpest, but there is so much more they fail at.
Summary: The title says it all. This camcorder makes the best video I have ever seen. It also makes very good still pictures. We recently bought a new 60" tv and my wife has been making videos of the granddaughter at the local swimming pool. They look so real you almost duck when water is splashed. It comes with some neat software that allows combining clips together into one movie. The software also lets you capture a still picture from a video.
