  • Summary: This product does not meet my need because I can not operate it outside the United States. I will appreciate it if you can replace this product with Sony Video Camera Z7 (PAN).

  • 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

Amazon
10 June 2013
  • 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.

Don't buy this Camcorder

Nee Nee, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • 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.

Thumb up

  • Excerpt: For the last 3 years I have been using the first Sony HDV camera, the Z1U, with great results. We took it in over 13 countries for the filming of a documentary and it preformed just great. However my Z1U, as much as I loved it, was growing old, so I went for the next generation, the Z7U, that I just got a couple days ago.The new HVR-Z7U is a pretty good piece of equipment for the [$]USD price tag. Despite a couple of shortcomings I don't regret getting it.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Zoom range/performance

  • Excerpt: Let me say few words about B&H. Their service is excellent, whether in person or by phone, it is the same. I have visited their shop in Manhattan,it is unbelievable, their products and their service is too good. As the customer service guy promised my camera came with in a week. They have no pressure tactics unlike the other companies. I have bought two cameras with them, so far my experience with them is extremely good.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound
