"Great easy to use camera, works fine on Vista 64"

mizor, CNET
10 January 2009
  • Pros: Picture quality on HD Video is stellar. Great range of colors and and picture depth. Sill pictures are decent but only when shot at 6.1Mp. Camera is literally so easy a caveman could do it.
  • Cons: 1. Price 2. Lack of USB / Firewire Support on camera 3. Batteries are very expensive, even for this industry.

  • Excerpt: "This camera was the second purchase in my household since an old JVC DV camera which played its part but the SR8E was such a change. We were now summoned to excellent if not exceptional video quality and sound (5.1 surround sound capability). Plus, this camera features an extra plug at the top for zoom microphones or other accessories. This camera is also touch-screen operated, and very easy to use (no manuals come with it just on-line help I think) ...
  • Pros: Amazing sound and video quality, infolithium tells you remaining battery life
  • Cons: a little noisy sometimes, average picture quality, fairly heavy

Video opnemen in High Definition

Tivadon, Ciao
25 October 2007
  • Excerpt: High Definition camcorders hebben ongeveer een 4x betere beeldkwaliteit dan we gewend zijn van normale videocamera's. Dit is het topmodel van Sony betreffende hun AVCHD-camera's. AVCHD betekent zeer goede beeldkwaliteit (High Definition) en opslag in het AVC H.264 mpeg-4 formaat en bij dit model wordt de film opgeslagen op de ingebouwde 100GB harde schijf. Dit heeft nadelen maar zeer zeker ook voordelen ten opzichte van High Definition camera's met tape.
  • Pros: Uitstekende beeldkwaliteit, veel opslagruimte, compact
  • Cons: accu snel leeg; snelle PC nodig om video te bwerken

Highend Kamera mit tollen Features! Träume werden wahr!

ufenloh, eBay.de

  • Summary: Nachdem ich, wie bestimmt viele, von der JVC GZHD7 enttäuscht worden bin, habe ich nach einem geeigneten Nachfolger gesucht. Und bin nach Abstrichen in der Auflösung bei den neuen Sonykameras gelandet. SR5, SR7 und SR8. Die SR8 besitzt die größte Festplatte der 3 Neuen. Eine 100 GB Festplatte auf die im besten Modus 1440x1080i XP ca. 13 Stunden und im SP Modus 720x576 70 Stunden! Ein Traum wird wahr! Keine Kassetten, Kein Kassettenwechsel, keine Bandgeräusche!

HDDタイプのハイビジョン?

羊のショーンさん, Yamagata University
11 September 2007
  • Excerpt: 98年にソニーのDVカムの3CCDタイプを買い新婚旅行に普段の記録に、また愛娘が生まれた時からずっとこのビデオカムにがんばってきて貰ってましたが機械的に少し悪くなってきた事とか画質や記録方式や編集などいろいろ制約が今風でなくなってきたので前々からHDDタイプなどのカムを探していました。 去年に購入したいなと思っていましたがHDDタイプなど新方式はまだ出て間が無い感じが強く大きさなどもチョットって思って見送ってました。 今年の機種が店頭に並び思ったよりも小型化したのとHDDの容量がかなり伸びこ   …
  • Pros: HDDの容量が大きい事とコンパクトさかな?
  • Cons: フルハイビジョンじゃないの?
