Specials 3D Full HD recording with 2 separate lenses / signal transducers"Smooth Slow Record" slow motion mode: 6 seconds are recorded with 200 half frames/sec., resulting in a 4-fold slow motion.However, the recording is without sound, in SD-resolution and in poorer image quality.

Pros - Good display
+ Very good image quality impression
+ 20x zoom
+ handling well-conceived
HDMI out
Cons - Image characteristics can not be changed
- few image control options
- Audio controlling only via menu
-less Wide-angle than FX1/A1/HVX200
Conclusion The high resolution of its 3D images is a real novelty in this price range.In automatic mode, beautiful 3D images can be made quickly and easily.Manual control, however, is scarce.The Sony HDR-FX7 uses its 1/4-inch-CMOS-Wandler almost to full capacity.The resolution, at least in the Y-channel is good, the color resolution is a little weaker.Low noise and smear-effects together with excellent automatics ensure a very good image impression.The 20x lens shows comparatively few errors like aberrations or distortion, but the wide-angle could be larger for this price range.In low light situations the FX7 is just about good -- here too the low noise a plus point.
