    Lightbulb Sony HDR FX7E HD camcorder, Handycam MiniDV

    I am selling this rather nice Sony HDR FX7E miniDV camcorder which I have been very impressed with.
    However, due to my growing family, I no longer have time for film projects, so rather than let this nice bit of kit get dusty in a cupboard somewhere, I thought it would be good to pass it on to a good home where it will be used.


    The camera is in immaculate condition as I have really looked after it. Definitely good as new.
    It has been used for a few small projects (music videos, short films) but really has hardly any use, meaning that internally, it's pretty immaculate too.

    For anyone wanting a pro-style camera, to shoot pro quality HD videos at an affordable price, this is perfect. It was apparently voted the 'Best Professional Camcorder' by the TIPA when it was first released.

    So, why buy this as opposed to one of the other popular Sony Handycams?
    Well for starters, it's a lot cheaper than the HVR Z1. Plus, it's much smaller and lighter. It really is a handy size and weight, making it robust, yet portable.


    And I'm also throwing in some extras.
    In addition to the standard leads, instruction manual, battery and remote control, I'm going to sell it in this authentic, well padded Sony bag - which is the perfect size for it and even has a nifty little pouch on the top for carrying a tripod (see image).

    Plus, I'll throw in (not literally, it could break) the Jessops UV filter, which will come attached to the camera.
    Finally I will also throw in a couple of new mini DV cassettes and a cleaning tape. How about that eh?

    I have seen a couple of places selling them for around £2,500 to £3,000 new without accessories (Amazon.co.uk: Used and New: Sony HDR-FX7E Handycam HDV 1080i), so I think my price is pretty reasonable.

    Any questions, just ask.


    I will only post to the UK I'm afraid. I will send it via courier, the cost of which will be included in the price.

    Sale Price: £1,800

    Here's the full tech specs (from the Sony Site):
    (I did notice that the official spec says that this camera comes with a USB cable. Well mine doesn't as I didn't get one with it. Instead you get the S Video, HDMI and power cables shown in my photos).
