Summary: The service from the seller was good and the quality of the used item was excellent. The only problem was the capatibilty of this type camcorder with the Mac Computer. I am waiting for the latest version of Final Cut Pro and supposedly with this software my camcorder will talk to my MacPro computer. I guess I have to wait and see.
Summary: After 2 years with the HDR-ux7 (paid a premium price when we bought it in 2007), I noticed this Sony was on sale at AMZN for $600. Good value. The HD is amazing, the Steadicam really works, even the sound is great. Drawback #1: Delays with the discs. To avoid a 20-second "formatting" delay before shooting, you must use Sony's (expensive) disks. The disks hold only 12-13 minutes of full HD+5.1 surround sound video.
Summary: I chose this camcorder because I don't do any video editing, and just wanted a high quality easy to use camcorder. The touch screen is great, doesn't smudge up much at all. I can't imagine why this is a problem for anyone unless you play with your own fecal matter and don't wash your hands. The camcorder stays charged for a long time. The picture quality is incredible. The night mode is amazing. The only thing to know.
Summary: Not much to say here other than it's awesome! Until 1080p camcorders come out, this is the one to buy for ease of use and portability. Shipping was fast. I am completely satisfied with this product! Thanks Amazon & Sony for having/making an awesome camcorder!
Summary: I have only had the chance to use this camera once, during a fishing vacation. I spent some time reading the reviews on the camera and on the DVD player which has to be a Sony Blu-ray. The camera was formated for HD and results were a true 1080 when played back. You will have to spend the money to make the whole thing work right. Purchase the Blu-ray BDP-S1. The Sony package was amazing. I really like being able to go directly from the camera to the DVD player.
Summary: I love this camera - video quality stunning. I'm a non-techie so let me toss a question out to the crowd - the 6.1MP still photos this camera takes are average at best. My 6.1MP Nikon D50 takes much better photos. Specifically I'm talking about grain and what I would call pixelation. I've double checked the settings on the HDR-UX7 and have them all set to max resolution. What am I missing? Other than that tiny issue this camera is great!
Summary: When you record in HD, you can only playback your 8 cm disc on a SONY Blu- Ray, not any other manufacturer's Blu-Ray's!!!!!!!! When Sony was contacted about this, they said they were sorry but you would have to just contact the other manufacturer to discuss playback options.
