  • 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

  • Conclusion: Die Bildqualität im Low-Light überzeugt voll und ganz und stellt tatsächlich in der gehobenen 1000 Euro-Preisklasse eine neue Referenz dar. Dafür gibt es kein Histogramm, kein Zebra, keine Belichtungszeit-Kontrolle, keine Schärfehilfen und keine Bildjustage.
  • Pros: Sehr gutes Low-Light Verhalten, Blendenrad + Touch-Focus bilden gutes Zusammenspiel
  • Cons: Kaum manuelle Eingriffsmöglichkeiten
