SDR-S7R is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works on a Mac By the way, I noticed another user couldn't use this with their Mac. I, however, had no problem whatsoever hooking this up to my Mac, which is a Powerbook.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I love this little camera. I chose it online and had no idea it was so small. The video quality is really good. It's amazingly light and compact. So far I'm really happy with it. But I do have a couple gripes... It's hard to quickly adjust the settings, like setting it for under a fluorescent light or in bright sun. Changing the settings is not intuitive so I have to keep a cheat sheet with me. I also wish the manual was written better and provided more detail. I'm trying to figure out if I can hook up a wireless mic. But so far I can't see an input for one. I'm really hoping that's not the case.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor transferbility It will only transfer the video files to a PC, NOT a mac. You can only transfer the still photos to a mac. (I use an IMAC.) The still photos are poor. It's easy to use, and the video is average quality. Overpriced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great all rounder Excellent camcorder, easy to use, small enough to fit into your pocket and lightweight. only fault I can find is the battery does not last too long about an hour from full charge. Need to buy a spare one if using for a day trip or the battery will run out. SDHC a bit on the expensive side for the larger 16gb size.
