Good for ghost hunters who need night vision.

peglegmediax, Ebay
4 February 2014
  • 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.

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.

The camera is good but format is a problem

Akhil Sharma "MicroBhai", Amazon
29 March 2008
  • Summary: The camera has shot good videos but to play them you need a powerful computer. So unless you have a dual core high speed processor you may not like to view the videos... I returned mine as i didn't want to upgrade my laptop just for the sake of AVCHD video format... i don't know when this format problem will get resolved or probably i will wait till my current laptop is completely obsolete...

Great amazon.com customer service!

Brazilian in Houston, Amazon
25 January 2008
  • Summary: This is the first camcorder that I've ever bought. I was looking at hard-drive models (vs minidv or dvd) and there were considerable options from Sony, Panasonic, JVC, and Canon. The 60 gb hard-drive, ability to do Hi-Def, take still photos, and sony reputation were what eventually drove my decision to get the SR7. I used the camcorder on my 3-wk vacation in December and it worked flawlessly.
