Great Camcorder

banisiaur, Ebay
10 February 2011
  • Summary: After MUCH research, trial and error, and actually trying 3 other video cameras, this is the one we stuck with. We even went to some local stores that had cameras on display, loaded in a blank dvd, shot some footage, and compared them at home on our 56" HD DLP TV. Clarity of picture, ease of use, quick and easy transfer to pc and burning to dvd, quick and clear focusing....all these were high priority when we shopped around.

EXTREMELY PLEASED

R. Bishop, Amazon
9 July 2008
  • Summary: Overall the 508 performs just as advertised and I'm very happy with it. It is compatible with several different 8cm DVD discs giving you different options for recording. I did not realize a memory stick was required for still pictures, so I had to make an additional purchase after receiving the camera - - not sure if the advertisement mentioned it. The menu and touch screen work very well, making for easy set up and review.

Excellent Home Handycam...Avoid Low Light Situation

Davio Green Bay, WS, Amazon
31 December 2007
  • Summary: I am a gadget guy that wants to get the best bang for the buck. Loyal to Sony for generations and after many hours of intense internet research I have narrowed down my options to three formats, three top cams. MiniDv, MiniDVD, HDD. MiniDv has proven to execute clear video performance for years now. Editing capabilities are simple because it uses a very flexible format known to many editing programs.

Nice to be able to take digtial snapshots while in record mode. Picture quality is good. I was able to fit 3 dvd+rw disc onto one dvd.

  • Excerpt: Вобщем камера хороша. Желательно еще и видео писать на флешку. Но это есть у более поздних моделей с маркой "Hibrid". Правда там уже другая цена. годик попользуюсь а потом перейду на AVCHD Hibrid.
  • Pros: Качество картинки лучше, шум матрицы меньше, дополнительных возможностей больше, чем у моделей Panasonic того-же класса и цены.
  • Cons: Маленькая емкость аккумулятора, поставляемого с камерой, оптическое приближение желательно иметь до 30х-40х.
