Stable, delicious,pictures on big 50" plasma. Better than a flip-style camera - good all-round

Portable HD cam

  • Summary: Good - size, menu, simple controls, build quality, video quality in good light, audio quality. Not so good - zoom wheel, exposure control/video quality in low light. Video quality in good light is impressive, comparing footage from the Sony Z1 HDV camera, the TG5 holds up very well.

GREAT HD Camera! Low light quality could improve.

  • Summary: I've had this camera for about 1-year and absolutely love it. My only gripe about it, as many others have mentioned, is how the quality of the image suffers in low light. This is not uncommon with pocket-sized cameras like the HDR-TG5V.

Small size, but "Full HD" is not 1080p

  • Summary: I have an older hdr-fx1, but wanted a small pocket video camera. This camera video is not as good as the full size, but is very nice in 1080i. It is not a 1080p camera, so saying it is "full HD" to me is really not true.

  • Excerpt: Поскольку использовал камеру в отпуске - оказалось, что без спец. софта - кроме как на камере практически невозможно просмотреть видео на компе.
  • Pros: Компактная, отличное качество видео, удобная в работе. быстрое включение.
  • Cons: практически нет. Единственные: аккумулятор слабоват (1,5-2 часа максимум), сложность в синхронизации с компом.

  • Pros: Размер 5+ , удобство 4+ , качество изображения на 42 плазме на твердейшую 4+ ,(ожидал хуже...).В целом доволен как слон :)
  • Cons: Цена . Дорогие фирменные аксессуары . Адекватная цена до 20-25тр. При плохом освещении качество заметно падает,при быстром перемещении камеры при съемке , изображение потом при просмотре чуть-чуть "мажеться" (но не критично, читай "терпимо"), слабовать встроеный динамик. Продавец "гад" -уверял чт...
