Sony Handycam HDR-HC7 - camcorder - Carl Zeiss - Mini DV (HDV)

CNET
  • Summary: Incremental the changes may be, but the HDR-HC7 is a great quality high-def camcorder, which should be perfect enthusiasts who need the recording ease of HDV.
  • Pros: HD highlights the world in all its glorious imperfection. Now looks and feels like a AU$2,000-plus item.
  • Cons: Manual controls fiddly and require stepping through the menu system. MiniDV/HDV isn't for everyone.
