This review is from: Sony Handycam HDR-TG7VE High Definition Flash Memory Camcorder with 16GB Internal Memory (Camera)
Having just come back from Florida where this camera came in very handy i can only heap praise on the product.
It functioned admirably and as most of the videoing was outdoor the GPS locked onto a signal very quickly. It is very quick to start from just opening the side viewfinder and records within a split second so you can catch the moment unfolding.
The other family in the group after the 3rd day didn't bother taking their video camera as it was bulky (even though it was a palm grip type) but the TG7 is easy to slip in the pocket when not in use.
I'd recommend the leather and metal case (says its for TG3 but still fits).
The digital camera side is adequate for A5 pics but maybe too grainy for anything bigger and the flash being around the lens itself sometimes isnt powerful enough in comparison to dedicated compact cameras.
This video camera is MAC compatible and the GPS info is used by iPhoto 09 to geotag pictures.
Well worth the expense.
