The Sony Timer legend suggests that Sony installs a device in its electronics products which causes them to fail soon after their warranty expires. They don't put the timer in devices such as the Playstation as they want to make money from the software sales.
A few more words on the Sony Timer in Wikipedia.
Hope my Rolly doesn't break. Do you believe in the Sony Timer and have you had had experiences with Sony products? Hmmm, getting Deja Vu again - have I asked this before?
Anyway, when I was handed the camera I thought "Sony...and I'm a Mac user...its not going to work out."
But to my surprise, the camera works well with my MacBook Pro and iMovie 08. When the camera is attached to the Mac via USB, iMovie recognizes all the files on the memory stick and proceeds to import.
Files are saved as MPEG4 AVC/H.264.
Jog dial for turning on the machine.
Attachment for microphones and dolphins.
Takes photos at 6 megapixels.
Size is 69×67×131mm and weighs about 370g.
One of the things I hate about Sony - the adapters size. I travel around a bit and knowing that I would have to carry this around just puts me off from buying the camera.
As with most Sony gadgets, the HDR-CX7 comes with a dock.
Back O the dock.
The HDR-CX7 is pretty simple to use and it it wasn't for that lousy adapter, I would consider getting it.
