Good Gear Guide.au
18 February 2010
  • Summary: The Sony HDR-XR520 is a rock-solid HDD video camera that improves on its predecessors in nearly every way. On the other hand, it's unlikely that many consumers will be able to afford it at its current price point.
  • Pros: Good video quality, excellent stills mode, 240GB hard drive
  • Cons: Video quality slightly below Canon HF S10, depressingly unaffordable

夜景や室内撮影に最強! ソニー「HDR-XR520V」徹底レビュー【画質編】

Low-Light-Star außer Kontrolle– Sony HDR-XR520/500

7 February 2010
  • Conclusion: Die Technik der neuen Bionz-Exmor-R-Kombination überzeugt voll und ganz und stellt tatsächlich in der gehobenen 1000 Euro-Preisklasse eine neue Referenz dar. Dafür legt das übrige Konzept der Kamera einem semiprofessionellen Einsatz enorm viele Steine in den Weg: Kein Histogramm , kein Zebra, keine...
