Great Buy!

  • Summary: Very easy to use, picture quality is fantastic and it holds almost 30 hrs of HD-FH on the hard disc. The GPS works great outdoors but not so good indoors. The smile shutter takes some fantastic photos while recording. The only caution I would make to prospective buyers is if your paying extra money for a HD camera you want to be able to enjoy watching your videos in HD.

Sony HDR-XR520V - It could be better for the price!!!

Lucio Costa De Almeida, Amazon
26 September 2009
  • Summary: This platform has a good potential but unfortunately somethings are missing: - it's a 1080i camcorder and for this price it should be 1080p; - memory card recording time is not fast enough for consecutive shots on camera mode, for fast scenes you must save pictures on hard drive; - Sony goes with Memory Stick for photos, not very portable to pc and laptops outside Sony's word; - Sony Lens are good but this project should has Carl Zeiss Lens; - If you add an additional...

Terrific results; camera easy to use

Dick Lutz "Richard J. Lutz", Amazon

  • Summary: Pity the lefties, for this camera fits my right hand perfectly with all the controls in easily-learnable positions. Capacious hard drive does away with worries about storage on a 25-day vacation trip like my recent one. Tip for new users: Learn early how to use the control that lets you set exposure and focus. You'll need it when you're zooming or panning in a varied-lighting situation.

3rd Sony Camcorder, Definitely a Keeper!

Karl Burrows, Amazon
27 April 2009
  • Summary: This is my 3rd Sony camcorder over the past 11 years. My first was the TRV-310 which used Digital 8 tapes and at the time was the high end for consumer camcorders. We used it for travels all over the world and were very pleased with the quality. It was especially good in low light, which tends to be where we used it most (indoors in regular incandescent light, which I would guess would be 75% of the total recording).

  • Summary: I've been Sony cameras user since about 30 years, so I'm very used with a great number of models and its evolution. This camera really is better than any previous handy cameras a clear improvement not any doubt about it. 1.- Great image quality as expected on a 1920x1080 pixels. 2.- Better low light sensitivity so better shots on it. 3.

Видеокамера Sony HDR-XR520E

тутсон, toneto.net

  • Conclusion: досточно хорошая, но не идеальная камера. Кроме того что видео классного качества, так еще и звук просто обалденный, хотя пять-один не такой, как надо. Стабилизация неплохая, как тут писали, но из-за этого есть один минус - при переходе со съемки с места на съемку в движении первое время стабилизируется, а потом идет скачек. А вот как тут писали про фокусировку - действительно регулярно ловит фокус на чем угодно, но не на предмете съемки.

Видеокамера Sony HDR-XR520E

  • Conclusion: Камера хорошая, но на все пять не тянет... Вместительная по памяти, монитор неплохой, но мажется и бликует, так что в ярком месте почти ничего в нем не увидишь. Достаточно легкая менбшка, но очень неудобно одной рукой переключать с видео на фото, кнопка как-то "криво" размещена. хватает всяких функций, отличный зум. При плохом освещении при съемке в движении камера "шумит", видно "зерно" и рывки.
