Impressive picture quality and straight forward operation.

Mike G, Amazon

  • Summary: This camcorder is amazing for it's size and the picture quality is great. It has a wide variety of options you may want. One option my kids really like is the "highlights" feature which takes clips of movies you've taken and set it to music.

Perfect Family Camera

Rob, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: Most noticeable the camera has no mechanical buttons around the display. Other than a half dozen buttons for 'record', 'zoom', etc, all input is with soft buttons on the LCD panel. Easy to use, odd getting distortion when pressing the display.

Excellant Low Light Camcorder

Jeffrey Wortner, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera last night and am so impressed with it I wanted to post an initial review ASAP since the camera is so new and there are so few reviews out there for it. To begin, I am new into the HD video, but am a techie and have done a lot of research.

Very Nice Stable Video Performance

Brent S, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: This is my third HD AVCHD Flash memory camcorder I have owned in the last two years and am very pleased with it. While this unit's video is not quite as crisp and vivid in color/clarity as the Canon and Panasonic units (95% as good), it more than makes up for it in image stabilization and low light...

Great low light, image stabilizer, form factor

EJ Coumans, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera has better low light performance compared to any of the Canon's (HFS10 etc), and it has amazing image stabilization. We've used it for a month now, and are happy with it. Perfect choice for a family 1080P camcorder.

Beautiful Camera

M. Woodward, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: I love this new camcorder. Easy to use and the low light footage is excellent. I film my kids inside more than outside so this was a must. The night vision option is fun and really does work. I like the compact size and the built in HD too. Less moving parts.

One of the best AVCHD values today...

Malcolm Granger, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: The price is certainly right. I have owned several AVDHD flash-based HD camcorders - the CX500V has the best low-light performance, reasonable stills, smaller than most and way cheaper.

Great low-light and stabilizer performance!

Bob, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: Just received the CX500v today; here's my first impressions: Pros: Performs much better than the Canon HF200 & HFS100 I tried earlier. Low light video indoors and out look very true to actual lighting and colors without the noise or grain I saw in the other cameras.
