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

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...
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.
Summary: Initially purchased the Canon HF S10 - it is a very nice camcorder in many respects. However, I noticed more image shaking than I thought it should have. I ended up also getting the XR520V from Crutchfield to compare and ran some head-to-head filming.
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.
Summary: This Sony HDR-XR520V is amazing! My last camera was so horrible in low light, I would have to turn all the lights on in the room and open the window blinds and sometimes that still wasn't enough.
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.
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...
