>> Hello, I'm Phil Ryan senior editor cnet.com and we're taking a look at the Sony Handycam HDR CX7. The CX7 doesn't record it's videos to tape, doesn't have a hard drive and obviously doesn't have a DVD drive. It records all its video to Sony's little memory stick duo cards. It's interesting because it's AVC HD camcorder it records high definition video directly onto the card. Thankfully, the image quality is pretty nice. We liked the video that we got from it everything was pretty good. The small design is a little awkward you end up with the camera at a little bit of an odd angle. You really have to grip it to bring it into where you want it to be. It has pretty good stills for a camcorder. We're impressed you could make prints from it maybe even up to letter size depending on the situation. Ultimately, this is probably best for people who want high quality high def video, but don't want to fiddle with controls. They want to use the automatic settings almost all the time. If you want to add, anything the top has a little hot shoe on it so you can add a microphone or a video light and it should be pretty easy to use. I'm Phil Ryan and this is the Sony Handycam HDR CX7.
