The Sony Handycam HDR-TG7VE is an incredibly small and light with stylish titanium body. Full HD recording on internal memory, plus GPS, smile shutter, face detection and SteadyShot image stabilization.

Ultra-light, compact and stylish with superb video and still image quality

Up to 6hr Full HD on 16 GB internal memory, 10x optical zoom and GPS

* Great for travel & holidays
* Tough, chic titanium body
* Tag your clips with GPS

Cheapest price around at the moment by a long shot. Next cheapest price is Dell at £501.12 EXCLUDING VAT and shipping.

A dearer way to waste your money.
CMOS camera, as discussed on many threads poor in low light - as discussed in your other thread:

I know, but once again, this is far cheaper for this camera than anywhere else on the net.

For all you cold voters, the average price for this is £600. Vote on the deal, not on whether you'd personally buy it!

It depends on the CMOS. Current CMOS technology supersedes the old technology, which I agree was pretty rubbish. Most, not all, high end HD Camcorder use new CMOS technology.

I know nothing about this camcorder, so if it uses the old technology, you are right, if not then no point dismissing all CMOS technology.

I've always liked Sony Camcorders, as well Panasonic ones, so I would say they are definitely worth the extra money. You just have to do your research to ensure that the model you chose isn't the 'odd' duff one. Sony Camera technology is topline and I am surprised we still have discussions about 'value'. In most cases 'you get what you pay for'.

It is cheaper, but not quite as cheap as you imply...

shows 29 all under 600, starting at just over 500!

I can only believe what more than one reviewer has said, unsolicited.

If someone has a good low light performing CMOS camera to show me that is anywhere near the pricing that current old technology CMOS cameras cost, then I am all ears.
So far no-one has come up with one, so it seems a perfectly reasonable assumption, to take that stance until such time it's proven otherwise.

The "just over £500" is from Dell & does not include VAT. That makes it £576 although there are others at £550 since some are not UK stock you might not get the £60 back from Sony. Beware.

This is cheap if you want one.

It would be helpful if you stated where you were purchasing from, the link you provided takes you to the Sony website, and prompts you to select your location, then choose your retailer. Selecting the first retailer listed for my postcode gives me Preston Sony Centre and a purchase price of £639 inc VAT. Even with the £60 cashback that's still £579 and therefore more expensive than the Dell price you listed yourself.
#8
The link takes me directly to the product page on the sony site. Not sure why it's taking you somewhere else.

For anyone else with problems with the link go to http://www.sony.co.uk/section/home and then search for HDR-TG7VE and it should come up.

That's why it's called an 'average' :thumbsup:

The link took me to the product page directly, but there was no price, I had to enter my postcode and select the local retailer. The deal is actually through a local dealer not direct from Sony.

My price on that exact page is £639.00 * Incl VAT

If you look below the price box it will say something like
"Prices & availability from Preston Sony Centre

and right at the bottom of the page it says:
* The RRP is Sony’s recommended retail price; the actual sale price is determined by the seller rather than Sony

YMMV
#11
Strange. I can see the price as £499.99 and can add it to my basket for delivery. It does say prices and availability from Guildford Sony Centre but still, if I can get it delivered surely anyone can??
#12
Yes it is weird. If I tell them that I live where I do the price is £649.99 whilst if I delete the cookie & then tell them that I live in Guilford the price is £499.99 as you say + they will deliver it anywhere!

Is Guilford a particularily sheapskate place?:roll: - or are you all keen bargain hunters :whistling:

Erm..I'd say I do yea. But seeing as you've obviously taken a tone that believes I do not, I took the liberty of calculating the average price for this based on the google price comparison you so kindly provided.

The mean average price for this product, based on the google price comparison you provided =

[SIZE=5][COLOR=Red]£623.04[/COLOR][/SIZE]

Now, you seemed to believe that I was exaggerating when I said the average price for this is £600. In fact from my quick educated guess that took me all of 2 seconds, I actually understated the average price. So my deal for £440 is actually a bloody hot deal!

My original though was right then! You don' know much about statistics.
Thought of a job with the Daily Mail?

What are you on about.. what "bait?"
Sounds a bit like trolling to me, now that IS bait :-(

It is a reasonable comment and argument.. he has his point, and I have mine, (although I am not sure it is a big issue in the first place). I am not trying to bait him, I don't "bait" anyone and I think we have come to agreement on other threads before, however his point on "average" is using the word to over-state the issue, even though I say in my post that I agree this IS cheap which makes this particular issue a bit minor.
Overstating so called averages is a common enough trick, doesn't mean it is acceptable though - Mark Twain sums it up,"Lies, damn lies, and statistics!" :whistling:

If we are going to take the issue of "average" a bit further, I, and may others can make just about any figure from about 500 quid to about 800 fit that description, even using those figures we have quoted, so let's get away from playing games with this.

You're the one that made it an issue. :?

If I know nothing then tell me what the average is! All I did was simply add up the available prices for the product and divide that by the amount of prices for it. I don't get what you're banging on about.
