Sony Announces AVCHD HDR-CX7, SR5, and SR7

http://news.sel.sony.com/en/press_ro...ase/30036.html

A 1920x1080 AVCHD cam would be nice, but it's still coming soon.

The Panasonic SD3 and DX3 records to 1920X1080 although it's only out in Japan.



Here is another thread.

Depending on the manual features, I wonder how they compare to the Canon's AH-1 HD cam.

I like the idea of a hard disk, but eventually in years, maybe it would crash and need replacing, but actually, it's probably easier to replace a little HD than an entire tape transport, which break much more easily.

The only drawback to HD storage, is that you won't have hard backups unless you put everything on a DVD when you are done recording.

Plus...how much does a 60 gig hold of SP mode?

The price is right though, I will say that. $1400 for 1080i sounds awesome.

The thing about the GL2 I liked the most though, was the 20x zoom, and the manual controls for F-Stop,lighting, shutter speed and such.

I am assuming these do not have 24 or 25p, correct?

I looked at the specs for the HDR-SR5 and they say anywhere from five to 15 hours, depending on recording mode.

Personally, that is what I like about Hard Drive based recording. The time limits are so much more expansive that it just stops being a problem.
