Disappointed

Asad Rizvi, Amazon
18 December 2007
  • Summary: I have been a big Sony fan for years, especially in regards to digital cameras. This camcorder was a big disappointment though. I dont mind paying the extra bucks coz its Sony, and its HDD and HD but I expected the same Sony quality that I have seen in their digital still cameras.

buffer overflow and data error

  • Summary: I rated this item low although I really like the camera for most things. There is one MAJOR problem I have seen. When I record my son's garage band in the highest quality, the recording mode kicks off after about 30 or so seconds whith a "buffer overflow" message followed by a "data error" message.

Steady shot is overheating causing image to jump

Lukasz Rutkowski, Amazon
17 December 2007
  • Summary: I have been using this camera for 2 years now. The steady shot lens overheat frequently and block themselves causing the image to blur (jumping vertically). The footage is useless. It seams the problem happens in most SR models - I found a lot of similar complains not only about SR7.

Sony electronics have gone downhill just like Sony computers

Sensible Economist, Amazon
17 December 2007
  • Summary: I have owned many sony products. They were all pretty good except their computers which are totally junk. I owned DCR-TRV17,DCR-HC40 camcorders and they were good and pretty reliable. Now for this HDR-SR7, it is a totally junk. Focus is a problem.

Common failure after 2+ years

Jon Proctor, Amazon
17 December 2007
  • 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.

UNRELIABLE PRODUCT

New York chap, Amazon
24 November 2007
  • Summary: Bought this product 18 months ago. It seems like a decent camcorder, but I had issues with the Sony people. The cam broke down oversees. I took it to a local Sony shop, and they told me that they sell a different model locally, and would need to import the electronic board for me.

User Review

Lony, Ciao
24 August 2008
  • Summary: Posseggo una sony hdr sr7 da circa 2 anni filma benissimo. Però ha un problema per il quale non fa che entra ed esci dal centro assistenza, senza soluzione. Il problema: dopo scarsa un'ora di registrazione va fuori fuoco e non c'è nulla da fare per farla riprendere; quindi addio filmato.

  • Conclusion: Pour qui ne travaille pas avec un SONY Vaio équipé d'un graveur blueray... SONY!!! s'abstenir. Ou alors savoir d'avance que vos film HD resteront en HD... sur le disque dur du camescope... Bien sûr, on peut les lire sur un téléviseur full HD avec un cable HDMI... non fourni!!!
  • Pros: Un bien bel objet.
  • Cons: Le disque dur: oh la belle illusion!!!
