Sony HDR-XR550 camcorder

stuffmideast.com
28 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The 12MP stills are sumptuous and crisp and there are enough connectivity options to satisfy those who want a high-def telly connection or computer hook-up. Not the perfect package, but a tempting one all the same.

Sony Handycam HDR-XR550V

CNET
8 July 2011
  • Summary: The Sony Handycam HDR-XR550V fares well compared with the competition, though its video could be a bit sharper and the interface less cumbersome. Unless you absolutely need to store a lot of video on the camcorder--which I don't suggest--or have large hands and therefore could benefit from the extra grip the hard drive provides, the cheaper and nearly identical flash-based CX550V is a better deal.
  • Pros: Full manual feature set for video; geotagging for video is fun, if not very practical; autofocus system performs very well.
  • Cons: Annoying menu system; no wind filter or meaningful audio controls; relatively big and heavy; expensive; defaults to low resolution, not-full-HD video quality; cumbersome touch-screen interface.

  • Conclusion: Weitwinkel, der sich bei aktivem Bildstabilisator etwas relativiert, sowie Lowlight sind besser als bei allen Konkurrenten. Bei der Schärfe, manuellen Einstellmöglichkeiten oder Farbdarstellung kann sich die Sony dagegen nicht absetzen, sondern bleibt meist sogar etwas hinter den jeweiligen Klassenbesten zurück. Die Automatiken greifen Sony-typisch solide zu.
  • Pros: Multifunktionsring, Fokus und Belichtung über Touchscreen gut gelöst, gutes Low-Light Verhalten, Weitwinkel, Hochauflösendes Display
  • Cons: Bild-Charakteristik nicht änderbar, Keine Schärfe- und Belichtungshilfen

Sony Handycam HDR-XR550VE im Test: Full-HD-Camcorder mit GPS

CNET
27 May 2010
  • Summary: Im Vergleich zu den Vorgängern hat Sony bei seiner aktuellen Camcorder-Serie in puncto Optik kaum etwas geändert. Die zwei aktuellen Topmodelle des japanischen Herstellers hören auf die Namen Handycam HDR-XR550VE und HDR-CX550VE. Ersteres bringt eine 240 GByte große Festplatte mit, zweiteres einen 64-GByte-Flash-Speicher. Die XR550 kostet derzeit etwa 60 Euro mehr und ist aufgrund des mechanischen Laufwerks etwas sperriger. Wir haben die HDD-Version getestet.
  • Pros: manuelle Einstellungsmöglichkeiten, Geotagging mit GPS, zuverlässiger Autofokus
  • Cons: umständliche Bedienung, kein Windfilter, keine Audioeinstellungen, schwer und groß, teuer

  • Conclusion: La Sony HDR-XR550VE è una videocamera digitale compatta dalle dimensioni ridotte ma ricca di funzionalità. Da sottolineare l’ampio hard disk interno, lo slot per schede di memoria, il display touchscreen di grandi dimensioni e ad alta risoluzione, i filmati video Full HD, l’ingresso HDMI, la risoluzione del sensore, il telecomando in dotazione, lo stabilizzatore di alta qualità e tante funzioni integrate. L’unico neo, ovviamente, il prezzo.
  • Pros: Mirino elettronico; Foto fino a 12 MP; Hard disk da 240 GB; Uscita HDMI; Display LCD touchscreen
  • Cons: Prezzo
