Excerpt: This model was reviewed as part of our group test of HD camcorders . Sony’s HVR-Z1E has become a classic, and is now the standard tool of the independent videographer – so the HVR-Z7E has a lot to live up to. But this is more than an upgrade.
Pros: Excellent lens bundled. CompactFlash recording as well as tape. Great low-light performance. Top-notch overall image quality.
Conclusion: Ein Fazit zu den neuen Sonys scheint ebensolche Millimeter-Arbeit zu erfordern, wie die hauchfeine Platzierung dieser neuen HDV-Modelle im hart umkämpften Prosumer-Gesamtmarkt von Seiten der Sony-Strategen.
