'Good selection of outputs including USB2.0, Firewire, Component, HDMI.'
'nice little lens hood'
'adjustable screen brightness'

'It's relatively big, weighing 1 pound, 5.4 ounces, though it fits into a large, loose jacket pocket'
'poorly located microphone.'
'It's a textured plastic that feels a bit like sandpaper – we're not huge fans.'
'Video quality is very good.'
'sound quality is subpar'
'This minimalist interface feels even more awkward than it sounds, reminding me of trying to change a television's settings without a remote control.'
'excellent picture clarity'
'Samsung SC-D372 records high-quality digital video'
'The hinge is thin, flexible, and could easily hyper-extend or even snap off if not handled with care.'
'The new Sony HD HDR-HC7 is bound to spark interest among beginning or casual shooters looking for their first HDV camcorder and even serious hobbyists looking for an unobtrusive second camcorder.'
'Annoying touch screen interface'
'Sony has attempted to improve colour shooting under low-light conditions with a 'color slow shutter', but this isn't perfect, with a juddery effect.'
'"Great film-like footage in a feature-rich camera."'
'Its batteries are interchangeable with the battery series used in the HVR-V1, and when using the NP-F970 battery, it can last for up to 13.5 hours of run time.'
'well-built, feature-packed HDV camcorder capable'
'Wide dynamic range Features like shadowed faces and overbright hair are clear and natural-looking.'
'The bad: No shoulder strap or accessory shoe.'

'poor low light performance ratings'
'the excessive number of functions on one button was confusing, and the menus were counterintuitive at times.'
'While placing the manual focus engagement button on the exterior of the cam is great, the ease of access to the actual focusing is somewhat of a hassle.'
