Now that we have 1080p-shooting pocket Internet camcorders costing under £200, the HDR-TG7VE's £500-plus price looks a little steep. However, it is in a totally different league in terms of both image quality and features. You can also pick up similarly good camcorders for much less, in particular Sony's own HDR-CX105E or JVC's Everio GZ-HD300. Nevertheless, neither are as small or stylish as the TG7VE.
