Impressive picture quality and straight forward operation.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Love this Camcorder

Amazon Customer, Amazon
17 March 2010
  • Summary: Expensive? Yes but worth it. I've been working with flash based camcorders (Sanyo's) since 2006 and this Sony is a work of art. The low light capabilities are excellent as well as normal day shots. The menus are easy to navigate once you get the hang of it.

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.
