Sony Handycam HDR-SR7 Vs HDR-CX7

by sachin_216 / March 29, 2008 10:45 AM PDT

I am really confused which one to purchase. I don't care whether it is a Pro-duo memory stick or HDD (to me, this is the major difference between these two). The things I am looking at are...

1. High-quality video
2. Easily portable from Camcorder to my Sony Lapto
3. When I say High-quality video, I mean there should be no drop of video quality even after a few hours

If someone can suggest me which is better than the other one and why, I would be really appreciative.

It really depends...

If you're fine with buying memory sticks, the CX7. If you're fine with storing your video on a hard drive, the SR7. Both are basically the same camcorders except they use different media. Have you ruled out tape camcorders already?

Thanks much for the clarification.

I did rule out tape camcorders as it looks to be a hassle maintaining tapes... you could say the same is the case with CX7 for memory sticks... Yes.

Anyway, as long as the video quality does not go down in HDD - SR7, I do not mind laying my hands on it.

I should have asked this in the first place... never mind...

How does CANON VIXIA HF-10 fare against SR7/CX7?

Like I said, all I look for is exceptional footage and easily transportable to my VAIO VGN-NR160E and TV.

Any further clarification is grately appreciated.

The Vixia HF10 is the best AVCHD camcorder to date.

Others may want to share some more information about transfer and such or you could search the forum and the answers all there.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
