Great Camera for the price

  • Summary: I needed a reasonable replacement for my CX550V. This camera is very similar and has 12X optical zoom. Appears to be the same picture quality.

Excellent camera... simple and powerful!

Arthur Hupp, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great camera for anyone... novice and indie films. Captures excellent images. Wish the lens were a bit more wide angle for interior shots but the light levels can be almost non existent and the images are still very good. I also work with a mac and it interfaces ... no problem.

Third one!

  • Summary: I use these cameras along with a digital audio recorder to record children’s performances and some horse competitions. Colors are very consistent between cameras and they work very well in low light stage performances.

Camera arrived early! GREAT condition.

  • Summary: Although this is my 2nd HDR-CX500, my first one lasted only 3 years. But I did use the heck out of it. When I inquired to SONY for repairs they were not helpful. This particular camera beats all.....best HD, best sound, ease. Only hoping it will last more than 3 years.

video is OK but I took vacation videos in HD-SP only to find out they were unreadable in Final Cut Pro and iMovie

M. Oksner, Amazon
30 December 2012
  • Summary: There is no warning from either Sony or Apple, although Apple did not print the manual for the camcorder, that reveals clips taken in Sony's HD-SP 1920x1080p 60i codex is not recognized by the movie apps on a Mac. Several visits to forums and Sony support were frustrating.

  • Summary: Excellent camera except for two problems. First, the common problem of the viewing screen being nearly opaque when shooting outside in sunlight (a problem also for small digital still cameras).
