Expert Review

 

If you're an indie filmmaker with a medium-sized budget on your hands, you could do a lot worse than this consumer/professional hybrid camera.

Exceptional image quality, Plenty of modes and functions, Professional components and design

Daunting for first-time users, Mediocre stills mode, Prohibitive asking price

Sony HDRFX7 Preview - Camcorders

 

Sony's HDRFX7 is a fully-featured, high-definition camcorder which will appeal to amateurs and semi-professionals alike due to its mix of sophistication and ease-of-use.

Good-quality HD video, Records in 5.1 Dolby surround sound, HDMI-out port, Excellent touchscreen menu and GUI, Professional manual adjustable ring, External mic and earpiece ports, Can store both video and pictures on harddisk

Premium price, New AVC format lacks editing software, Needs PC to archive footage when out of space, Grainy pictures in low light, Bulky

Can you record video onto the memory stick, or can you only record to the mini cassettes?

Sony Handycam HDR-FX7

 

User friendly for me, graduating from mid-range video cameras.

Weight for features, on-camera screen

A windsock for the mic would be nice. No need for in-camera editing features

Excellent

 

THE GOOD: Sony HDV quality. Nice camera ergonomics and handling. Sweet styling and design. Good placement of control buttons and a sharp Carl Zeiss lens optics. THE BAD: Larger than a handycam and quite heavier than other cameras in its level. OVERALL:...
