Summary: The best Handycam i ever had. Its so sleek yet sturdy. Its made of Titanium and the shell is very strong and of superior quality. The display is crisp and clear. It does not come with a SD card but has a built in 4 hrs worth recording space in HD. Only thing i could wish is that it would give a better still quality in poor light condition.
Summary: I received this camera new and it took only a few minutes to get it up and running. The included battery was dead, so I let it charge completely. The on-screen menu was simple and easy to setup and configure. If you have big hands like I do, then you may have some slight issues clicking exactly on the icon/button on-screen, but not a problem or issue, just have to be ready for it. Overall, I can't say enough about the Zeiss lens.
Summary: The Sony TG5V Handycam Camcorder Is The Best Investment I Have Ever Made Considering That I Am A Videographer And A Photographer. It Has Superior Zoom, Great Picture And Image Quality And It's Perfect In Size For Those People On The Go!!! I Brought Mine From A Company Called Willoughby's Through Amazon, They Were Very Thorough And I was Guaranteed Next Day Delivery If I Chose It (Which I Did) And It Arrived As Promised!!!
Summary: Are you looking for the absolute best quality video & sound available including astonishing low light performance? Then look elsewhere. Are you looking for a camera that you'll actually carry which is also fast & simple to use while capturing very good HD video and acceptable stills? Then stop looking, you've found it. For my money, a camera that gets used is way better than a studio quality hulk that sits in the closet. This thing will fit in pants or jacket pockets.
Compact, easy to use and works great with Macintosh OSX

Summary: This is a fantastic camera. The video and camera controls are easy to use and the zoom is easy to control. It fits very nicely in my pants pocket. The only deficiency is that the documentation for Macintosh OS use is very poor, and actually misleads you to think that the camera is not Macintosh compatible (I was angry when I read the single page on the Sony website, which implied that only photos taken on the memory stick could be used on a Macintosh).
Excerpt: У меня SONY HDR-TG1. Отличие HDR-TG5E только в закругленности корпуса и встроенной памяти. Цена в 30000р. вполне нормальная, т.к. брал свою за 24000р. в июле 2008 (+ карта памяти 5500р. тогда стоила). Качество съемки в SD,HD и FullHD четкое, тормозов нет. Заряда АБ хватает чтобы записать видео в fullhd на 16 гб. (примерно полтора часа). Звук записывает в формате 5.1. По поводу удобства держать эту камеру - привыкаешь быстро.
Pros: Компактность, качество (сборки и видеосъемки), стиль, оригинальность.
