This is the camcorder to have the way I see it.

  • Summary: One of the most important things you want out of camera, that it does what you need to happen to accomplish what you need, (not want) and I believe that many will agree. Anyway let's take a look at the SR7 60gb camcorder and why I value it: 1. I get good picture quality, 2. It's not conspicuous. 3. It has good stabilization, 4. mic & headphone inputs and other connections.

Kinda good but mostly bad

Deano Pope, Amazon

  • Summary: Let jump right into it x The still image quality is great for a camcorder x Video quality is incredibly smooth and detailed for its age x Mine came with a defective hard drive couldn't record for more that a few minutes without the message (data error) and shutting of what after researching seem to be common with this model x Night shot is an innovative and very practical feature that works great x To me operating it felt a bit primitive with the small touch screen...

Good for ghost hunters who need night vision.

  • Summary: not the best quality camcorder for the price but great for ghost hunters who need night vision. Build in hard drive makes things super easy. Charging dock is annoying and takes up a lot of extra space when they could have just made a small battery charger.

  • Summary: I had this for about 8 months and used it less than a dozen times, and it just stopped working. F you Sony and your ridiculous, expensive repair policies.

Good despite its age.

  • Summary: I recently picked this up on amazon for $347 in mint condition, it works wonderfully, it does better than my previous HD camcorder. The harddrive holds a good ammount of video, the picture quality (and video quality) is very good, at least for my purposes (class projects, recording lectures, youtube, facebook, etc.), and with adobe programs and some funky audio editor I got a while back, I am able to work wonders with what this thing gives me.
  • Pros: AVCHD is easy to use with adobe programs, quality is unimaginably good, audio is cool, wind noise isn't too terrible to edit out (in advanced editing), nightshot, big harddrive, nice zoom, mic and headphone jacks, shoe, viewfinder
  • Cons: Touch screen will eventually break but it is holding up just fine for now, no USB jack on the camera itself, only 3 seconds of slow motion footage (never really got increased, even today).

Common failure after 2+ years

Jon Proctor, Amazon
4 September 2010
  • Summary: I purchased my HDR-SR7 in Dec '07 after much research. I have been very satisfied with this $1300 camera until a few weeks ago. Long story short, many Sony SR series (and other models) owners experience a common failure after a period of time in which the video recording experience a vibration which is only rectified by a $500 repair by Sony and takes 4-6 weeks. Basically the electronics which control the lens functionality overheats and fails.

STUNNING IMAGE ON HDR-SR7

fineartvideo, Ebay
27 May 2010
  • Summary: The most important feature of any camcorder is the image quality, and the HDR-SR7 tops the charts. When I first connected this to my HD television, I could not believe the image quality even in normal interior room lighting. It surpassed anything coming over the television, even the HD programming! Outdoors, it stood up to the images from cameras costing 5000 dollars.
