Sony HDR-CX700VE

Sony HDR-CX700VE


De experts zijn in ieder geval meer dan gemiddeld positief over de Sony HDR-CX700VE. Er zijn Camcorders en videocamera's die volgens deskundigen beter zijn, maar er zijn er meer die slechter worden beoordeeld. Controleer eens de prijskwaliteitsscore om...

Intern geheugen; GPS-sensor geïntegreerd; Goede geluidskwaliteit; Goede fotokwaliteit; 50p-opname

Standaard geen accessoireschoen; Geen manuele opname; Kwaliteit LCD-scherm net niet voldoende; Zeer traag bij opstarten

Videocámara de alta definición Sony HDR-CX700VE


Sony nos ofrece un modelo que forma parte de su gama alta para el mercado de consumo, con unas prestaciones que bien podrían ser válidas para muchos profesionales del vídeo digital

La incorporación de memoria Flash como almacenamiento primario (96 Gbytes)

Aun ofreciendo una gran calidad de imagen, esperábamos algo más

Sony Handycam HDR-CX700VEB


An excellent camcorder, good picture and sound quality.

Zooming and out could be smoother. Not so sure about the nightshot quality.

Compact Excellent HD picture quality

When it comes to deleting the pictures, there should be an option with one click to delete all rather than having to go through the entire file selecting all the images to be deleted
