I want to buy the Sony HDR SR7, i have been reading about it, from others, and i just wanted to ask if this camera is good. I will mostly use it in the daylight, and at times, in low light. I have been reading that at low light it is not that good. I also found out that editing the video is a headache, as the hardware is ahed of the software.

Would anyone be able to give me any other information about this, please i need it, as the camcorder costs around 700.

Also i was thinking of insuring it for 5 years, as it tends to malfunction, and the HDD also gives problems at times.

Is this a good idea?
