A workman like camcorder, and has a VIEWFINDER!


A nice to handle camcorder with a useful GPS function for those of us who cannot remember where that scene was shot.

I had a S300 and like todays trend was hopeless out doors in the sun. So, I scrapped that camcorder and bought the CX700VE because it does have that simple device which made all the difference for outdoor use. The low light aspect is good, focus is quic

The method of displaying playback groups seems pointless. I would prefer that the simple pages of thumbnails be displayed instead of the strange little groups . I would have liked to be able to have both the monitor screen and viewfinder on at the same t

The product is just okay.


The product is very excellent but playback function disappoints a lot. Also the touch screen is less sensitive and you need to press very hard to open the application which might damage the screen in long run.

Very good low light captures. Takes good night scenes and videos

The Play Back function is confusing. They need to make it user friendly as per their earlier camcorders

Sony HandyCam HDR-CX700VE High Definition Camcorder - black


The quality of picture is outstanding, With manual operation if you are not happy with automatic. Easy to operate with the best anti shake function I have experienced. Accessory shoe and flash all included.

Full HD. 50 frames per second function. Dolby 5.1. Full manual overide

Sockets in awkward place. Auto function tends to leave whites over exposed
