Not so super steady shot

The Bear, B&H Photo
11 May 2012
  • Excerpt: I ordered it on a Wednesday afternoon from B&H and it was at my door Friday afternoon, with free shipping! The overall picture quality is great but...I take videos of trains, I have a SONY DCR VX1000 and it is rock solid compensating for vibrations, with the HDR FX7 if there is vibration, it shows on the video no matter which of the 3 steady shot settings I use. For me it only rates 3 stars because of the steady shot, otherwise its a 5 star.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom

Love the camera - hate Sony's technical support

Video Productions of North Central Florida, Amazon

  • Summary: I have gotten many hours out of this camera since purchasing it. There is high quality, small in size but powerful in it's ability. My only drawback seen with this camera is that I would have liked to have had a more powerful zoom lens. I have found that the 20X zoom will not get me closer to the subject when shooting at a distance. I shoot many sporting events and it is perfect for following the action on a play by play basis.

  • Excerpt: I used the camera for shooting video of sporting events and live performances. The camera had some glitches which could have been unique to the unit alone. I wasn't sure, so I upgraded to the FX1000.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Recording issues

beware of focus issues

  • Excerpt: I use this a lot for outdoor shooting, around the world with auto focus ON. Recently I did some studio shooting, and of course went to manual focus to better control everything. Much to my surprise, the camera has a terrible back focus problem. When I would zoom in and focus manually, and then zoomed out, it was way soft. At a distance of 4 meters, the camera had to be re-adjusted to 12 meters to sharpen the image.

Nice except color correction

Mind's Eye, B&H Photo
1 December 2010
  • Excerpt: Nice overall camera, if I only had 1 I would keep it, however I have 4 FX1's and 3 HC1's and try to color match this one with the other two is TERRIBLE!!! That is why I am getting rid of it. Other than that I like the camera and nice overall features and picture quality. Low light also an issue...
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
  • Cons: Confusing difficult controls, Poor In Low Light, Poor Sound

Great bright light picture, ok low-lite

Dan M, B&H Photo
25 April 2010
  • Excerpt: I use this camera for filming snowboarding and skateboarding and any other general filming I may need to do in every day life and for college. It is a great camera. Very nice bright light performance but gets somewhat grainy when the lighting is very low. Also poor image stabilization when zoomed in. The picture is beautiful and the colors are bright and vibrant. Good settings. However, I would expect a little more out of it for the price.
  • Pros: Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Poor image stabilization, Poor In Low Light, Poor Still Image

Compression!!

Dale, B&H Photo
13 May 2007
  • Excerpt: The reason this camcorder is so cheap or reasonable is because it compresses the signal to Mini DV at mpeg2. If you are going to use this camera to edit video, consider what it will look like after you compress it again to a DVD, which is mpeg2! Double compression! Unless you can afford a HD hard drive directly out of the HDMI, you're gonna wish you didn't buy this one. I say spend a little more and get the Canon XA1 HD cam.
