Summary: Sony, getting better all the time: This is not my first video camera, I started about 20 years ago with the Betamovie and with it I've made videos with such good quallity that I didn't change it by the next one, the Video 8 because it still wasn't better until the first Hi8 appeared which was really...
Summary: I think the obvious has been stated. The camera does a great job with good lighting. Low level lighting is an issue. I knew that before I bought. I also knew to have Sony Vegas primed for the AVCHD formatted files.
Summary: I am writing this review after using this camcorder for 1 full month of trip to Africa. Why Did I buy This:(buyers have to be clear on this) I checked out the differences between a High definition video and standard definition video. I totally fell for high definition.
Summary: The Sony HDR-SR7 is a great high-def, consumer camcorder. The ease of use and simple features make it very straight-forward. Having used it for a few weeks, I've only found a few drawbacks. First, it seems unnecessary that Sony used a mini-HDMI connection port.
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...
Summary: Brought this as a Christmas present. Tried it out over the New Year and the video was great, especially in high-def (when playing back directly from the camcorder to a HDTV). It was simple to use. Point and press the button to start the recording and press the button again to stop the recording.
Great camcorder, good in low light, still have space after Christmas on drive

Summary: I had an old DAT based Sony camcorder that had to be repaired, but the cost was almost what I paid for the thing originally. At that point, I figured I'd bite the bullet and get a high def hard disk based camera.
Summary: Picture quality is much better than the last camcorder I bought which was a JVC non-HD camcorder. In good lighting, this camera looks really good. In low light, sometimes it looks decent. In really low light, you need the night vision turned on; you can see everything but it looses almost all color.
