Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 Reviewed on January 30, 2007 Check prices
Product overview
Sony Handycam HDR-FX7
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 3.5 stars out of 6 reviews

The Bottom Line: The Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 is an excellent high-definition camcorder from a video perspective, but it's less satisfying if you're an audio control freak. Read review

Specs: 3 ClearVid CMOS, 1.04 megapixels, None, 3.1 lbs, 5.7 in, 12.7 in, Sony Handycam HDR-FX7 - Camcorder - Mini DV (HDV), 6.1 in, Carl Zeiss 20 x x Zoom lens - 3.9 mm - 78 mm - F/1.6-2.8

Product overview
Canon Vixia HF S21
  • CNET Editor rating:
    4.0 stars Excellent
      Overall score: 8.0 (4.0 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 3 reviews

The Bottom Line: Though they're an excellent trio of camcorders, the Vixia HF S21, HF S20, and HF S200 are significantly more expensive than their respective competitors, especially since the S20 and S200 lack electronic viewfinders. If you can forgo some of the subtleties of the manual controls, you can probably get what you need with a cheaper camcorder. Read review

Specs: CMOS, Built-in flash, 16.6 oz, 2.9 in, Canon VIXIA HF S21 - Camcorder - Flash card, 5.8 in, 10 x x Zoom lens - 6.4 mm - 64 mm - F/1.8-3.0, 3 in

      Overall score: 7.2 (3.5 stars)
  • Average user rating: 4.0 stars out of 1 review

The Bottom Line: Though the Canon HR10 is a decent camcorder, there are better choices for the same money because format performance and compatibility issues make it hard to recommend a DVD-based AVCHD model. Read review
