The Best in Features for its Price

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is the ultimate camcorder at this time. Interchangeable lens capability sets this in a class by itself. I bought an adapter to use Nikon SLR camera lenses for special effects. (Sony sells an adapter that works with its Alpha SLR lenses, as well.) Controls are professional all the way. Images are incredible. The dual-recording to tape, chip, or both is great. I've dropped the tape recording and now use just the compact flash recording. The CF chips are really cheap and make editing on the computer a snap. I think this may be the last professional/prosumer camera that Sony makes with tape drive. It's great for back-up, though. Beats out anything in the AVCHD category, and most HDV cameras out there (IMHO).

SONY delivers a solid Pro-Sumer camera!

I absolutely love this camera. Records to both tape and card media and has a removable lens. Image quality is superb and is made with professional shooters in mind.

My dream's camera ever, my money maker. Awesome!

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The best prosumer camera for long time. It's a SONY. Ganar esta subasta ha sido una de las cosas mas excitantes para mi en este año, he esperado esta camara y soñaba con ella. Usarla al día siguiente en mi incipiente negocio fue muy recorfontante.

The best in tapeless shoting

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have three Sony HVR-Z7U camcorders and that's the way to go for tapeless videoing. Picture quality is excellent. The only negative is the on/off switch. It is difficult to turn off without switching to VCR. Sony should have caught that problem before putting it in the market.
