Default Re: Sony HDR-SR7 HD Video Camera

Update: For those interested in this thread, I thought I'd mention that as of this update the software for using this cameras full features and maximum quality leave a lot to be desired. I've settled with Sony Vegas 8 which is the best editor of the bunch and if all you want is MPEG with stereo sound, then its fine. However, if you want the full AVCHD format with 5.1 surround sound, then things get complicated. For one thing, a high powered PC is going to be required when you render in HD. Thats one reason I'm planning to go for a QX9650, X38, with DDR3 shortly.

Still, the camera is fantastic but I hope the AVCHD format doesn't fade away before it catches on. Otherwise one could do the same with less $$$.
