16 Reasons For

Sony Camcorders Have Good Reviews

Sony is one of the superior camcorder manufacturers according to average expert and user reviews, and Sony also has good reviews for its camcorders.

Reasonably Priced

One Sony PXW-FS7 owner who bought the Sony PXW-FS7 concluded that it was a bargain for the price. Two years ago Videomaker.com said “The LCD monitor is mounted with cheap plastic, eyepiece adapter is even cheaper” in their review of the Sony PXW-FS7.

Nice Design

One Sony PXW-FS7 reviewer thought this camcorder was ergonomic. Two years ago Videomaker.com wrote “Superb ergonomics, fully operational out of the box”.

£590.00 Price Drop

In the last month the PXW-FS7 has dropped in price by £590.00.

Has an Interchangeable Lens

The PXW-FS7 has an interchangeable lens, unlike most of the other video cameras of a comparable type and age to the PXW-FS7 which do not have an interchangeable lens.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative video cameras with an interchangeable lens currently available including cheaper video cameras such as the Sony PMW-300[plb_2132091_price].

Has an HDMI

has an HDMI

The PXW-FS7 has an HDMI, which is unusual. Most of the other camcorders of a comparable type and age to the PXW-FS7 do not have an HDMI.

We compared this camcorder to all the other camcorders with an HDMI and we think the PMW-300[pl_2132091_price], and the PXW-X200[pl_2941311_price] both from Sony which is cheaper is also worth considering.
