Sony's HDR-UX7

 

Sony's HDR-UX7 is one of the latest camcorders featuring the AVCHD standard, which allows 1080i HD recordings to be made to DVDs. With the standard ex...

Handles a wide variety of scenes respectably, 1080i delivers sharp and clear images

Some problems with colour reproduction, limited optical zoom

If you're looking for a high definition DVD camcorder, and don't mind having to occasionally work around colour reproduction issues, then the HDR-UX7 is a solid choice.

Sony Handycam HDR-UX7

 

In replacing the HDR-UX1, the HDR-UX7's big news is the higher megapixel count and AU$200 price cut.

Outlook The improvements, it seems, with the HDR-UX7 are incremental with the big news being a price chop of AU$200. If you're in the market for a DVD high-def camera but can't stretch to AU$2,099, Sony offers an alternative at AU$1,799 with the...

Sony HDR-UX7

 

A capable cam that'll take the knocks and matches it rival, the Panasonic HDC-SD1. It can't quite better Canon's HV20 on sheer performance though

Sony Handycam HDR-UX7

 

Wow!The picture in HDhq is stunning.Quite a steal at that price.I had some doubts about AVCHD but not anymore.

Even the SD picture is really good.Those buying the dcrsr300 (same features except for hd) will not be desapointed

20 minutes of HD only on one disc but this is minor

Sony Handycam HDR-UX7

 

by far the best camcorder, i mean everyone can dream of. unbelievable resolution, its so clear its like looking at someones eyes. the color is very very close to real life.

Image stability, even when im jumping around its so steady. the color of the video, just unbelivable in HD! its so perfect, i cant find a single thing to complain about it, its almost impossible

the provided battery's life is good no doubt, but the other batteries and accesories for sale are very expensive
