As a standalone product, the HDR-SR7E is nearly impossible to fault. However, most users would be better off getting the HDR-SR8E, which offers a much larger hard drive for a slightly higher premium.

Vibrant picture quality, excellent stills mode, user-friendly touch interface

It's practically the same price as the superior HDR-SR8E

Sony Handycam HDR-SR7 review: Sony Handycam HDR-SR7

 

Sony Handycam HDR-SR7

Excellent video and performance; satisfying photo quality; a decent set of manual controls for the target audience; bundled dock.

No wind filter; no USB port on camcorder, just on bundled dock; annoying touch screen interface; cables not ubiquitous yet for mini-HDMI connector.

The hard-drive-based analog of the HDR-HC7, the Sony Handycam HDR-SR7 finally delivers a cutting-edge HD video experience, complete with great video and compatibility frustrations.

Plenty of output and input options, Easy to hold steady, Sharp and vivid video ...

But you'll need an HD TV and Blu-ray/PS3 to truly get the best, Manual settings require diving through touchscreen menus, Mini-HDMI cable not included -- screams of penny pinching

Compared to the tape and mini-DVD based high-def camcorders Sony launched earlier this year, there are only a few minor detail improvements. But we feel that the addition of a high capacity hard-disk to the existing combination of high-def recording,...
