  1. I am an Aussie, and was considering buying the Sony HDR-SR7 from China, and was wondering what exactly the E at the of HDR-SR7E was for?

    I had a look around the internet and didn’t find any good solid facts, some people believe its European (PAL) version which i don’t believe and others believe it is a cut down version, in which case i would like to know exactly whats cut out and if its disabled and i able to enable it?

  2. Not sure either. Think safest is to check the specs. My guess is just for model identification, US/Euro/Asia.

  3. I wanted to buy the same camera of you and i got a lot of info in China,coz i wanted to buy it there.
    The SR7E is the PAL version and works only for pal Tv or multistandard Tv, the SR7 without E is the NTSC version.
    That is for sure.
