Summary: I bought this back in 2009, so it's not really fair to review it by 2015 standards. It still works and it has always done what it's supposed to do. The user interface is kludgy (even by 2009 standards), but you don't have to mess with on screen controls much to use the camera.
Summary: This product came packaged just as the seller described except that it is not the Sony HDR-XR500V - it is the Sony HDR-XR500 "E". Otherwise the product came as described with assesories that were not included in the original advertisement, which stated that it only came with a USB cord (in addition...
Summary: I just bought this camera to self film my bow hunting and for a backup camera/second angle camera when with my hunting partner. It takes excellent pictures (taken mostly by accident when trying to record) And has very crisp footage during good light (*****).
Summary: This camcorder has excellent video quality even in very low light. It even has a infrared light for night recording. The audio quality is good. All media files (videos, pictures) are tagged with GPS lat/long but may not be useful outside of the camera and the supplied software which can It is very...
Summary: This camera is awesome. Great video quality! Two Cons: 1.- Pictures taken at night are TERRIBLE! You cannot trust on this camera if you go out at night or in low light conditions planning to take some pictures. However, video quality at night is pretty good. 2.- GPS feature... No feature at all!

Summary: Recently I bought Sony Handycam HDR-XR500V and this is what I feel about my new camcorder. I fell in love with my Sony Handycam HDR-XR500V the moment I held it in my hand for the very first time. The camcorder is very sleek, lightweight and extremely steady.
Conclusion: не, пятерки не заслуживает, хотя характеристики довольно неплохие.Звучание у видео отличное, стабилизация и чувствительность отличные. При этом камера совсем нетяжелая, маленькая, куча памяти, с классным дисплеем и батареей.
Summary: Ich bin nach Jahren der Fotografie wieder zum Videofilmen zurückgekehrt, weil die Lowlightfunktion ein neues Abenteuer für mich ist. Endlich Berlin bei Nacht filmen zu können. Einfach fantastisch!

Summary: Ich verwende diese Cam rein beruflich und möchte vorausschicken, dass ich sie gekauft habe, um auf meinen Recherchereisen - mitunter auch versteckt - zu filmen. Wer also allgemeine Beschreibungen möchte, ist bei anderen Rezensionen sicher besser aufgehoben.
