Sony Handycam HDR-CX520V Digital Camcorder

pattawoz, Overstock
25 April 2014
  • Summary: Unfortunately, this camcorder is allied, primarily, for interface with non-Mac computers. I could not use the software program IMovie interface and found that it also would not allow me to use tapes as opposed to media cards and camcorder internal memory to store videos in my library.

Well built and solid camcorder

  • Summary: Excellent Video/Photo quality. The best Handycam I ever owned from Sony. There are two disadvantages for this camcorder. It only accepts memory stick duo pro and it does not have the view finder.

Step in the wrong direction for "Sony" camcoders line

Tom Canny "Market Analyst", Amazon
27 December 2010
  • Summary: Ever since Sony switched from famous Carl Zeiss® lens to own Sony G lens, serious problems started to appear: - Day light videos become significantly darker and less sharp ( clearly visible on YouTube); - "Blue Dot" artifact as a focused lens flare ( well documented on YouTube); Reason for lens switching was reduction of production costs at the expence of consumers. But who wants to have dark videos with "Blue Dots" in them? It's a step in the wrong direction for "Sony"!

Great camcorder.... but couple things you should know...

LDMak90 "LD", Amazon

  • Summary: I won't give you the same GREAT things this camcorder is or does. I agree with everyone's assessment of the features and functionality and such. However, I believe there are a couple small things that people should know before purchasing. They are small and shouldn't get in your way of purchasing but they are little annoyances that I probably take too seriously.

Awesome video quality, unbelievable light

David Rivera Hernandez "davicho", Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: I was used to the previous generation of Sony's hard drive-based camcorders therefore I expected a lighter cam but this model is insanely light and the picture quality improved a little bit. I really like the recharger is built into the cam, no more hassles of traveling with a separate base/recharger. Also the GPS capabilities are welcome. I miss the view finder for those situations where looking at the LCD screen is not practical.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera about a month ago through amazon from J & R out of new york. I love the camera but would not purchase from J&R again. The camera does not come in the sony packaging protected by foam or anything. When the package was shipped by J & R in the shipping box they did not add any protective foam and I recieved the pacage thrahed.

AMAZING HD camcorder!

William A. Ludwig, Amazon
9 January 2010
  • Summary: All I can say is, "WOW"!! After using a standard definition camcorder, this is light years ahead. The low light videos are perfectly exposed and display natural colors. The picture quality is incredible, and the features are second to none. Still photos, at 12 megapixels are close in quality to my $1600 Nikon D90 camera. I LOVE IT!!

Great camcorder

Khanh C. Nguyen, Amazon
24 December 2009
  • Summary: Well, this is my first camcorder so I cannot say that I am much experienced with camcorder. However, I am very satisfied with this camcorder. There are several points that I want to write down. First off with the pro: 1. Being a photography type of guy, I am very picky with picture white balance, especially indoor pictures. The pictures should show as close to the real envirenment as possible.
