Sony HDR-CX520V Camcorder: Review

Review guidelines
2 May 2013
  • Summary: At the top. The two most interesting features are the large touchscreen display and dual storage possibilities, of internal flash memory and on memory cards. Also of note is Full HD movies, the pictures up to 12 MP, the optical stabilizer, the supplied remote control, built-in GPS and HDMI input.
  • Pros: Sony G lens, Full HD, Memory Stick slot, internal memory, smile detection and smile shutter.
  • Cons: Price; Objective; Manual Focus uncomfortable; Menu complicated, No microphone input.

Sony HDR-CX520V Review

20 January 2010
  • Excerpt: It was hard walking the aisles at CES without tripping over mounds of flash memory camcorders like the Flip. Harder to find were higher-quality “real” camcorders with zoom lenses and much better high-definition (HD) performance.
  • Pros: Compact, lightweight, Full AVCHD video, 64GB onboard memory, 12x optical zoom, Excellent OIS system and sound
  • Cons: Expensive, Flash stills fine, poor unless enough light, LCD should be better, No electronic viewfinder

Expert Review

11 September 2011
  • Conclusion: Die Bildqualität im Low-Light stellt momentan in der 1000 Euro-Preisklasse die Referenz dar. Der große Dynamikspielraum in der Werkseinstellung sowie das Fehlen von beweglichen Teilen könnte diese Kamera eigentlich für Independent-Filmer empfehlenswert machen.
  • Pros: Multifunktionsring, Fokus und Belichtung über Touchscreen gut gelöst, gutes Low-Light Verhalten, sechs frei belegbare Display-Buttons
  • Cons: Kein Mikro- und Kopfhöreranschluss, Mittelmäßige Display-Auflösung, Erweiterung nur durch teure und proprietäre Memory-Sticks
