From the Manufacturer

Sony DSC-HX7V
Cyber-shot
Sony DSC-HX7V gets up close with 10x optical zoom. Whether you’re capturing crystal clear video with full HD 1080i, framing that perfect shot with the background defocus, or taking great shots in low light, you’ll find that each moment you capture will be one that you’ll want to hold onto forever.
Sony DSC-HX7V Feature Highlights
3.0-inch LCD
3.0-inch XtraFine LCD   
3.0-inch XtraFine LCD with TruBlack technology gives deeper blacks and more color in the display, all while being thinner than most LCDs.
AVCHD
AVCHD 1080/60i   
Record movies in Full HD high definition 1080/60i. This provides stunning, smooth motion video with less distortion for playback on Blu-ray Disc players, Sony PlayStation 3 systems and compatible PCs and HDTVs3.
G Lens
Sony G Lens with 10x optical zoom   
The Sony 10x optical zoom G lens brings distant subjects super close for great outdoors, sports, and travel photos. The compact size makes it easy to take with you in a pocket, purse, or backpack.
Exmor R CMOS Sensor
16.2 Megapixel Back-illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS Image Sensor
The DSC-HX7V features a 16.2 megapixel “Exmor R” CMOS image sensor that brings out the full resolving power of the camera’s Sony G lens to deliver extremely fast speed, high resolution, and stunning low-light sensitivity with improved image clarity and drastically reduced grain. In addition, the combined “Exmor R” CMOS sensor and BIONZ™ image processor delivers extremely fast 10fps, Anti Motion Blur, Hand-held Twilight and 1080i movie modes7.
Background Defocus   
DSLR photographs are often beautiful because they blur the background, putting the emphasis on your subject. Now our point-and-shoot cameras can deliver this signature DSLR benefit. The system takes two shots, identifies the background and applies a defocused background keeping the subject crisp and clear.
3D still image and panorama   
Produce awe-inspiring images with 3D still image and 3D Sweep Panorama capabilities5. Photos will take on a new dimension of creative capabilities for viewing the world in a whole new way.
iSweep Panorama   
With iSweep Panorama just hold the shutter, pan the landscape and let the camera do the rest. It automatically links together each frame to produce a panoramic image. This model even detects faces and moving subjects to stitch intelligently different widths to help avoid subject distortion.
Superior Auto Mode
Superior Auto Mode   
Get cleaner, more dynamic pictures and fewer missed shots. The camera automatically recognizes the correct scene mode, then quickly shoots and combines up to six shots to produce images with greater clarity, optimum dynamic range using backlight correction HDR technology and lower image noise using 6 shots layering technology. Superior Auto intelligently detects 33 scenes for still images and 44 scenes for movies, making it easy to get the best shot.
Backlight Correction HDR   
Don’t miss a single detail in high contrast shots. The built in backlight correction analyzes the image and automatically adjusts accordingly to give you a perfectly lit shot. Backlight Correction HDR helps correct for this by taking three pictures at different exposure settings and processing the best elements of each into a single image for more natural looking shots.
GPS and Compass   
An integrated GPS receiver and compass record the location and direction of every shot you take and let you view your images on a map with compatible computer and internet applications, so you can remember where you took your favorite shots.
Digital Zoom   
Capturing the right shot at the right moment has never been so easy. Digital zoom brings the action up close to get that perfect shot, every time.
Optical SteadyShot Optical SteadyShot image stabilization   
Optical SteadyShot image stabilization uses a built-in gyro sensor to detect camera shake and automatically shifts the lens to help prevent blur without sacrificing image quality.
Soft Skin mode   
Portrait subjects will love the results. Soft Skin mode recognizes skin tones and reduces the appearance of blemishes and wrinkles without affecting the rest of the shot. 
Natural Flash   
Conventional point-and-shoot camera flash shots just don't capture colors the way the eye sees them.  Natural Flash mode takes a reference shot without flash and then uses that reference to correct the color, for far more lifelike images.
HDMI output
HDMI output   
The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is a compact audio/video connector interface for transmitting uncompressed digital streams. HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as a compatible camcorder, Blu-ray Disc player, a personal computer, a video game console, or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV). Easily connect your Cyber-shot camera via HDMI cable to any compatible HDMI compatible device to easily enjoy and upload content7.
Smile Shutter Smile Shutter technology
Smile Shutter technology captures a smile the moment it happens. Simply press the Smile Shutter button and the camera does the rest. You can also select adult and child priority and indicate the degree of Smile Detection Sensitivity. Intelligent Scene Recognition can be used together with Smile Shutter mode. This means that beautiful smiles can be captured with settings optimized for the particular scene, even in difficult conditions such as twilight and backlighting.
Face Detection technology Face Detection technology
Sony’s Face Detection technology can automatically distinguish between children and adults. Face Detection technology detects up to eight individual faces and adjusts flash, focus, exposure, and white balance to help deliver crisp, properly lit images of family and friends.
Motion Detection
Motion Detection, along with Face Motion Detection adjusts ISO sensitivity and increases the shutter speed when movement is detected, reducing blur in moving subjects and faces.
Anti-blink Function
It’s frustrating to capture the perfect shot, only to review it later and discover subjects blinked during the photo. When the camera is set to Soft Snap, the Anti-blink function captures two images, recording only the photo with less squinting or blinking. If a blink is detected in other shooting modes, a warning will be displayed after you take the shot.
TransferJet Technology TransferJet technology   
TransferJet technology, developed by Sony and advanced and promoted by consortium of 18 other companies, allows you to transfer up to ten files between two TransferJet enabled devices just by touching their TransferJet logos together, without the hassle of hunting for cables or the complication of pairing6.
Works with iMovie Compatible with PC and MAC Systems   
The Full HD video captured with the DSC-HX7V can be used with the provided Picture Motion Browser software1 for PC and iMovie (sold separately) for Mac systems.
Includes Sony PMB (Picture Motion Browser) Software ver. 5.51

When pressing the video button, I've waited up to 8 seconds before it starts recording!

I do recommend using the Intelligent Auto mode most of the time and only using the Superior Auto for shooting static images in low light.

I have to first tell you that I own two cameras right now. I own a Nikon P90 (great zoom, great picture) which I thought was a step up from my old Olympus Tough, I had previously owned a Kodak and a Casio which I dreaded. (picture quality was really poor on both of them). The last camera I bought was a Panasonic ZS6 which is a phenomenal camera due to it's Lecia lens. After buying this camera I told myself that my next camera will either be a DSLR or a Lecia. (Both costs a lot of money)

I first saw the camera at Costco which is selling it for less than $280 with an 4gb SD card and a Sony bag. I picked up the camera and spent about 20 minutes going over everything. It was awesome...

* 10 shots in burst mode at the full 16.2 Megapixels due to it's "Exmor R" CMOS Image Sensor (not the slow CCD sensor/ processor that Kodak invented that everyone else uses.) It also takes awesome pictures at night like an DSLR without the flash.

* 3 different Sweep Panorama modes, 1 standard , 1 wide, 1 high resolution. (up, down, left, and right)

* GPS and Compass works great and syncs up with google maps and tells you where you are. (remember to turn it off before you turn the camera off or it may drain your battery)

* Smile mode~~ three different setting for different types of smiles, depending how big your smile is.

* Face Detection has 3 different modes one mode gives you priority over who you are taking a picture of, either child over adult or adult over child.(up to 8 people)

* HD Video~~AVCHD at (1920 x 1080 @ 60i)24Mbs, (1920 x 1080 @ 60i)17Mbs, (1440 x 1080 @ 60i)9Mbs (face detection and zoom works while taking a movie).

I just purchased this camera from Costco for $275, bundled with a sony case and a class 4 4gb SDHC card. I have been playing with it for the past three or four days--which really isn't enough time to give a full review, but I would like to give my initial thoughts. By way of background, I am a "junior" shutterbug. I enjoy taking quality pictures. but I am more of a videographer--I have a Canon HG10, with a JVC Everio GZ-HM300 as a backup. My wife and I have been shooting with Panasonic TZ5 that we bought a few years ago and I also shoot with a Nikon D60 and a 1984 model year Minolta X-700 (I learned how to take pictures with this baby).

I wanted a compact megazoom for my wife that takes excellent photographs in all conditions and could sub in for a full fledged HD camcorder in a pinch--and one that my wife could use to take pictures of our new baby (soon to be born). This camera seems to do the trick--with some caveats. First, the camera takes excellent photographs. Put the camera in superior autofocus mode and you can take perfect pictures 90 percent of the time. In bright, direct sunlight, the sun will cause glare across the picture--the camera does a decent job of adjusting for this, but it can screw up your shot. I don't dock the camera points for this though since I have yet to see compact camera do any better. In my opinion the pictures are very sharp, with accurate colors--although reds can appear slightly oversaturated. Most cameras have a bias---the panasonic zs10 blows out greens. You aren't going to get $2,000.00 DSLR type performance out of a $275 compact camera, but this does a great job. Now, I have read some reviews, both consumer and professional, that found the pictures to be on the soft side. I just don't see it.

Color Name: Black
I am a fairly experienced film and digital hotographer and based on the specs and some reviews took it as my main camera for a three week Scandinavian and Baltic trip. I did not want to lug around an SLR. That was a big mistake. I took many great shots, but had to discard many and missed many. You have read about the pros and cons, but I will just give you the cons, the reasons why I am returning this camera. The list is in order of importance of problems. FYI I was using a class 10 high speed memory card.

It was really slow in starting up and switching modes or accessing photos. Often you would lose 4-6 seconds. You often missed the shot. Often it would indicate "processing" after a shot for 3 to 5 seconds after the shot was done. Again, as a result you missed shots.

The battery after a full charge could barely handle a day of shooting. I had to turn off all sources of energy loss: screen brightness down to 1 or 2; GPS off (it often didn't work, anyways), minimize changes in zoom, shoot "simple modes" that don't require much processing.

It had hardware problems. Sometimes when switching modes to the intelligent superior mode it would actually start recording video. Had to reboot the camera (turn it off or remove battery). It would not stop recording on it's own. Some of the controls (screen brightness, date/time adjustment and others) stopped working. I had to initialize it (return to factory settings) several times.

Programming was a problem. On some settings you could not force a flash (eg intelligent superior). On the manual mode the controls to change settings (ISO, shutter, etc) did not work. Even the menu system stopped working not allowing me to change display brightness.
