Sony Handycam HDR-SR7 Hard Drive Recorder

maximum pc
18 December 2007
  • Excerpt: This Handycam felt rock solid and provided the best optical image stabilization. Its stop/start button is in the perfect place, but the zoom control is positioned right where your middle finger rests—bad idea. We like the “easy” mode, which, with the push of a button, takes care of exposure and focus for most situations. The SR7’s stop button seemed to be on a half-second delay, resulting in swish pans at the end of a few shots—an annoyance we got used to after a while.
  • Pros: Rock-solid; good optical image stabilization; "easy" mode; great video quality.
  • Cons: Awkwardly placed zoom button; stop button delay. Very slight artifacting.

  • Summary: As a standalone product, the HDR-SR7E is nearly impossible to fault. However, most users would be better off getting the HDR-SR8E, which offers a much larger hard drive for a slightly higher premium.
  • Pros: Vibrant picture quality, excellent stills mode, user-friendly touch interface
  • Cons: It's practically the same price as the superior HDR-SR8E
