Sony's HDR-XR500V Handycam Work Horse For Real Estate Property Videos.
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.
Summary: I've had this camera for a couple of months now and haven't really put it to the full test but so far I very much like it. I'm a total dunce when it comes to learning how to operate things like this but this camera was a snap.
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.
A nice AVCHD encoder/recorder that makes me happy (for now)

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.
Summary: I extensively used during my recent foreign trip. I shot 365+ HD videos (ranging from few seconds to few minutes) and took more than more than 1000 pictures all in highest quality settings. I barely filled half the hard drive capacity!! The quality of pictures is stunning!!
Summary: It is easy to use and gives beautiful results and 120GB is a lot of HD recording time. LCD display is just first rate and stunning. I wish Sony would make high quality software like Flip has - so that one cold share easily. A real Gem!
