Summary: The best prosumer camera for long time. It's a SONY. Ganar esta subasta ha sido una de las cosas mas excitantes para mi en este año, he esperado esta camara y soñaba con ella. Usarla al día siguiente en mi incipiente negocio fue muy recorfontante.
Great camera. REGRET BUYING FROM ELECTRONIC BASKET

Summary: I bought my first Sony HD Camcorder in 2006, and now need a second one for an expanding production business. The Sony HVR-Z7U HDV is a big leap forward in technology from my original. It's beyond the typical "ProSumer" HD camera, and has a heftier feel than my first camera. HOWEVER - I GREATLY REGRET BUYING THIS FROM ELECTRONICS BASKET. The camera was delivered in May, 2013, and everything was just fine. Then, in October, the camera stopped working.
Summary: Pros: Great footage in low light situations, after factory settings are changed. I have two Z7Us and 2 MRU units, I have the same issues with both units. Cons: MRU (Memory Recording Units)continually drop frames. I have to constantly re-synch videos. (I am using the recommended Compact Flash Card) Out of the box settings are horrible. 1. Must change the internal settings on db (gain) or footage will be unusable due to noise. 2.
The parts for this camera has been destroyed in flooding!!!!!!!

Summary: Hard to believe but everything is possible with Sony. I needed the part for my Z7U, I called Sony and they told me that most of the replacement parts for this camera were destroyed in the Flooding in Tayland and they will be no available any more in the future. Since all the Sony authorized services are buying the spare parts from the same suppler, there will be no way to fix your camera if something goes wrong with it.
Summary: This is the ultimate camcorder at this time. Interchangeable lens capability sets this in a class by itself. I bought an adapter to use Nikon SLR camera lenses for special effects. (Sony sells an adapter that works with its Alpha SLR lenses, as well.) Controls are professional all the way. Images are incredible. The dual-recording to tape, chip, or both is great. I've dropped the tape recording and now use just the compact flash recording.
