Summary: Because an image worth a thousands words, check out my video I did with the same camera on youtube /watch?v=aa7og434IoM, overall it's a very good camera very solide and have quick response, lots of feature for custom movies, the quality of the image is excellent!
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.
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.
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: hi guys if you are thinking about buying a camcorder and you have the extra money this is the best camcorder for you. it has high quality stills picture also an auto mode that takes still pictures during your video (hd) recording whenever someone is smiling. and many more great features.
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.
Summary: I love camera's image quality, colors extended dinamical range and much much more. Camera is capturing excellent quality video clips in almost any light conditions. It is easy of use, although I'd prefer to use regular buttons rather than touch screen.
