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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I was looking for a hard drive High Def camera. I purchased the JVC GZ HD7 and took it home. The camera was $1,800 and rated at much higher resolution but the picture quality was nothing compared to this Sony HDR UX7.
Summary: Pros: 1. Built like a tank. Very sturdy and comfortable to grip 2. AVCHD recording gives beautiful, breathtaking pictures. It captures more color than my eyes can. Outdoor shootings are incredible, even with just HD SP setting. Indoor is OK. 3. Big LCD 4. Nice NP-FH70 battery included 5.
