Awesome camera. Loving it

David Brown, Amazon

  • Summary: Awesome camera. Loving it. Bought this one because of the programmable round knob on the front. The remote control only controls the play features not the record which is what I really need.

Pro-sumer quality at an affordable price!

peak77, Ebay

  • Summary: I use this camera for both video capture as well as live output via hdmi to a projection screen during private events. As another user stated, it works great with Sony Vegas Pro for post-editing. Tremendous plus is the external mic input. Just bought a back-up on ebay for a great price.

Awesome!

  • Summary: This Camcorder is top notch. It is the second one I have purchased. There is nothing wrong with the first one but I want to be able to video from two angles and am so pleased with the first one that I didn't want to buy anything else.

Sony's HDR-XR500V Handycam Work Horse For Real Estate Property Videos.

mooersrealty, Amazon
24 December 2011
  • Summary: The Sony's HDR-XR500V Handycam is one bullet proof, shoot in any conditions hard working video camera. My second Sony and I use it for Maine real estate videos, local community shoot, edit, render and uploads to You Tube and other platforms. It has an amazing leveler for steady easy pans, an on board still 12 meg in case you left your still point and shoot home. Or its battery goes dead. The quality, price, dependability of this camera makes it my pick.

Excellent Camera

plutom "plu_tom", Amazon

  • Summary: I can't ask for a better camera. The picture quality is exceptional and there is absolutely no jittery recording with this camera. The price was hefty but you get what you pay for. One thing that I didn't like is the fact that, you have to turn on the camera to get the memory card out. It could be elsewhere where I didn't have to turn the camera on. This is not a big deal but I thought I mention it.

Literally the best consumer camcorder on the market as of April 2009

H. Paul Moon, Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: 1. Still capture at 12 megapixels is probably a waste of disk space (and the extra processing time that it takes to deal with the larger pictures). Unless there is something revolutionary about the way that the camcorder would interpolate the native 6.2-megapixel still capture up to 12 megapixels, I would use the interpolation capabilities of, say, Photoshop back at home and set the camcorder to grab stills at 6.2 megapixels (native).

A Product That Will Not Disappoint

S. Schmidt "TotalHavoc", Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: Sony HDR-XR500V 120GB HDD High Definition Camcorder w/12x Optical Zoom The quality of the product surpassed my expectations. The clarity of the video in lower light conditions is impressive. The big problem I had with my previous camcorder was the picture would look grainy when taken indoors under normal indoor lighting conditions. This camera does a great job in lower/low light conditions. The fireworks and twilight modes are excellent.

A nice AVCHD encoder/recorder that makes me happy (for now)

carevalo, Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: I hesitated a lot about buying the Panasonic TM300 or Sony's HDR-XR500V. Like most consumers cautiously waiting for spending circa US$ 1000+ in an electronic appliance, I read thoroughly all reviews. Unfortunately I had to make a decision, no procrastination allowed. I decided Sony. Perhaps this will help you decide. In light of this, I am sure that you may benefit from my line of reasoning. 1.
