18 Reasons For

On average Sony video cameras have good reviews compared to other brands as do all video cameras produced by Sony.

Reasonably Priced

One customer who reviewed it reckoned that it was a bargain for the price. Videomaker.com wrote “The LCD monitor is mounted with cheap plastic, eyepiece adapter is even cheaper” in their review.

Nice Design

One customer concluded that the product was ergonomic. Videomaker.com wrote in their review “Superb ergonomics, fully operational out of the box”.

Has an Interchangeable Lens

The Sony PXW-FS7 has an interchangeable lens. Most of the other comparable spec camcorders that were released more than two years ago do not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens and we think the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera EF[plb_1983449_price] is also worth considering.
