Summary: Buy it! The only downer was not a surprise and that's how the Sony files and the Mac do not play happily together. I actually can not shoot in 60p at all, because the video file is useless. That said, 60i still looks way better then what I had before. The stabilization makes my usually shakiness smooth and buttery. The nightshot works great at a touch of a button! My zero budget clips are looking better than ever!
Summary: i like very much this cam. so much that i ordered another one because my old one got stolen. i really suggest this cam to anyone because its really simple to use and its memory capacity is excellent. the Carl-Zeiss lens are great and the night shot is superb. the double functionality with video and photography is really practical. really nice buy i assure you. The deliver was fast and everything was there as promised.
Light & small like a cheap camcorder, but incomparabl image & sound quality

Summary: The camcorder shoots very stable and high quality images, with amazing sound for a camera of this size. Could be improved: - Turning on is a bit slow - Battery life, about 2 hours, is quite short - A viewfinder would have been appreciated (and would also have enabled a longer battery life)
Summary: The film quality is prefect and I love being able to mess with the manual settings to get more control over this camera. The night shot is amazing as well! Along with a phantom lite - it would be much better! I'll have to upload some footage if I can.
Promiscous still photo capture, Exmor R sensor does magic.

Summary: I found the 570E gives me convenience and versatility as it is not only producing high quality video but doubles as a pretty remarkable kind of still photo camera as well. Getting the stuff onto SD card is very convenient for laptop transfer given the sharing constraints. The Exmor R image sensor is very sensitive in low light and so to say "defy gravity" when it comes to the traditional laws of lense openings and shutter speeds of ordinary digicams and film cameras.
Summary: We bought this camera to create training films for our staff. we chose this camera for the excellent zoom and steady image features.W e use it as the 3rd person perspective and Go pro for the 1st person view. It has been a great asset to our project. The zoom is awkward to use on the fly.
Summary: This is my first digital camcorder, and I am happy with it. Works well in low light condition. I can't wait to try the newer version of it which is Sony HDR-CX760V. Not use much to say more, but I will recommend it to anyone just need a good digital camcorder to use. Buy it, take it out of box, turn on iauto mode, capture, and enjoy. Works well with Mac and PC computers.
Summary: Because an image worth a thousands words, check out my video I did with the same camera on youtube /watch?v=aa7og434IoM, overall it's a very good camera very solide and have quick response, lots of feature for custom movies, the quality of the image is excellent!
Summary: I love sony cameras and this is a nice camera. The only thing i dont like is that i get digital skips when i make dvds. I get great sound and good quality pictures/ videos and the camera is easy to use.
Summary: The Sony HDR-CX560v is one of the best in its class. There are so many features packed into this camcorder.. A ton of manual controls. If you hold the dial in for 2 seconds then you can set the feature you want, hold it in again and you can set another feature with out losing the first setting. The low light is some of the best I have seen. It even has night shot for recording with out any light. Sony also gives you a ton of storage with 64GB built in.
