Here's what we had to say about the CX7 when it was released in August 2008:
This high-definition, SDHC camcorder from Sony almost begs you to buy it. Its slick exterior, smooth handling, and practical portability make the CX7 one of the most attractive camcorders on the market. But that's not all; it can perform too. Sony equips the CX7 with high-definition capabilities, a 1/3" CMOS sensor, and 10x optical zoom so that you never miss a moment.
