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: 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.
