Re: Sony HDR-SR7 HD Video Camera
Update: Regarding the QX9650 performance. Using my previous AMD 4800X2 CPU I tried to render a 55 minute / 10GB AVCHD video file (Sony native HD video format for this camera) to a 3GB WMV file after adding titles and transitions. The render time estimated between 24 and 30 hours, so I chose to not do that.
With the QX9650, same file, it rendered in 3 hours. I was impressed. Thats an improvement that made it all worth it to me. This is using Sony Vegas Pro 8 as I mentioned above, which by the way is the perfect software for this camera.
