More than just a camcorder, the CX700V doubles as a digital still camera, taking 12MP still images. A bevy of still features allow for low-light photography, thanks to the built-in flash, and simultaneous still/video shooting, among other useful options.

When it comes to the 'basics', the CX700V covers all the bases in style. The camera sports a Wide Angle G lens, 14x Extended zoom, optical image stabilization, a generous 3.0" LCD, and a respectable 1/2.88" CMOS sensor, along with the Sony BIONZ image processor. The camera also has an electronic viewfinder for more precise, distraction-free shooting.

Shooting controls are another hallmark of this cam. You'll find controls like Intelligent Auto to Track Focus to Golf Shot. And, features like microphone and headphone connections, Clear Phase stereo speakers, 5.1 Surround Sound, and a host of manual control options only sweeten the deal. The CX700V is packed full of features, sure to please.
