Sony HDR-HC7 Review

24 June 2007
  • Conclusion: Like the Canon HV20 , I have no problems recommending this camcorder even though it’s tape based. Video quality is excellent and stills are, well, camcorder stills no matter if the spec says 6.1MP or 6,000. The HDR-HC7 feels very comfortable and the controls are nicely positioned.
  • Pros: Excellent HDV video; optical image stabilization; good ergonomics
  • Cons: No 24p Cinema mode; confusing menus
