It broke

  • 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.

Common failure after 2+ years

Jon Proctor, Amazon

  • 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.

Nice camcorder, but has an issue.

  • Summary: I went through three of these camcorders before I gave up on this model. I did like the camera though for it's build quality, features and ergonomics....reasons for trying three, let me explain. When I tried the camera for the first time, I noticed that every 3 to 4 seconds you could hear a faint click-click sound each time the buffer emptied to the hard drive. Only problem was, it recorded the click-click or clunk sound however you perceive it.

  • 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!!! Le logiciel fournit (sur PC exclusivement) est pauvre en fonctions: pas de possibilité de mettre des titres, des transitions... Il permet de graver un DVD blueray en un clic, oui c'est sûr!!!
  • Pros: Un bien bel objet.
  • Cons: Le disque dur: oh la belle illusion!!!
