Sony Handycam HDR- FX7 review - CNETSony Handycam HDR- FX7. Though . Like the HDR- FX1, the HDR- FX7 is a three- chip, . That's where the similarities end, however, as the HDR- FX7 has completely different sensors and optics that effectively make it an altogether different camcorder. For instance, the HDR- FX1 has a practical, 1. For the HDR- FX7, Sony sacrifices some wide- angle attitude for a more marketing- driven 2. CMOS technology typically draws less battery power than CCD does, and Sony rates the HDR- FX7's battery life at about 8 hours, compared with the HDR- FX1's 6.
Review summary Editor's note: Though the HDR-FX1 remains an excellent prosumer HD camcorder, the changing competitive landscape has prompted us to retire.

Each of the HDR- FX7's sensors has a lower resolution than the HDR- HC3's, though. It weighs about 3.
Ah NP- F5. 70 battery. If the battery seems lost in the huge cavity designed for it, that's because the camcorder can accommodate the 6,6. Ah NP- F9. 70 as well, for triple the battery life.
The battery lasts a reasonably long time, but it won't charge while the camcorder is on, which can be quite annoying. If you think that would annoy you as well, you'll probably want to spring for the external battery charger. When shooting at eye level, your right hand controls only zooming and snapping still photos. The bulk of the operational burden- -and the weight of the camcorder- -falls on your left hand. Focusing via the ring works very well, especially when used in conjunction with the Expanded Focus button that falls under your left thumb; popping into EF mode zooms the view of the middle of the area for easier manual focus.
A one- push override provides an autofocus lock that you can tweak manually, which makes it much faster to focus on hard- to- lock subjects; just use the override to focus on something nearby, then manually adjust for the subject. There's also a two- step neutral- density filter control, which I really like. Brother Mfc-J6710dw Install on this page.

Buttons for backlight and spotlight compensation and shot transition presets are gone, replaced by six buttons (three on the barrel, three under the LCD) to which you can each assign one of 1. Steady Shot, color bar display, and focus peaking. I think a couple of those still deserve their own keys, such as Steady Shot. However, the company did address one of our complaints about the HDR- FX1, so you can now use focus peaking and Zebra stripes simultaneously.
Gain, shutter speed, and white balance still have their own dedicated buttons. And a handy Status Check button, which sits next to the custom- setting Picture Profile control, pulls up all your current settings, because there's a lot to remember. I much prefer the zoom rocker, which has a nice, responsive feel. A lens cover is built into the bundled lens hood, which is great if you leave the lens hood on all the time. If you take it off, as I do, it's not so great.
