Sony rolls out HDR-FX7 1080i HDV camcorder

Sony has introduced the HDR-FX7 1080i HDV camcorder, a three-chip ClearVID CMOS sensor technology unit that weighs 3lbs and is designed for prosumer applications.

The HDR-FX7 is about 40 percent smaller and 25 percent lighter than Sony’s first prosumer HDV model. It can record and playback both 1080i HDV and standard definition DV video on standard miniDV tapes.

The primary benefits of Sony’s ClearVID CMOS sensor are high-speed data transfer rates and lower power consumption. The new camcorder’s three-chip configuration combined with the company’s originally-developed Enhanced Imaging Processor results in higher video resolution, greater light sensitivity with minimal picture noise, and more accurate color reproduction.

The camcorder uses Sony InfoLithium L Series battery with STAMINA technology. The largest capacity battery available will deliver up to eight hours of continuous recording time.
