Don't waste your money!

  • Summary: At first I was in love with this camera. It is lightweight enough to carry comfortably. I used it for still pictures and video on family vacation and was very happy with the results. However, after it was put away for 6 months I cannot record for more than a couple minutes without receiving an error message "buffer overflow" which stops the recording.

Great product for every one: from a regular person to a video pro.

  • Summary: This is really the best camera I know. Image is excellent even walking or moving. It has everything. You forget all the problems of using a video camera: it is just wonderfull. The only thing the I find that could be better is that a special software is needed to get the files from the camera, instead of just use it as a hard drive and the fact that very few software programs have the capability of handling the HD files from this camera.

"Stopped working properly after 20 hours of use"

edriejk, CNET

  • Pros: Nice small size, great picture.
  • Cons: Main one is it will turn off by itself after 15 minutes of use, with DATA ERROR on the screen, then restart after a few seconds. After that, it turns off after fewer and fewer minutes, whether using battery or plugged into wall, with drop sensor off.

Great Camera and Image Quality

Helper, Amazon

  • Summary: This camera provides a great picture in varied lighting conditions. My only complaint is the software. Burning HD movies (which is the point of this camera) is hard to impossible to do with the provided software as well as many different packages you can buy.

Sony HDR-XR550E camcorder

Galega, REVIEW STREAM
5 July 2011
  • Excerpt: After researching on lots of option I decided to buy a new camcorder from the house of Sony . This is the sixth month since when I am using this brand new device. I must say it at the outset that I am not that much happy with this camcorder . My happiness stems from the fact that this camcorder is not giving anything more than its competitor and it costs me more than 100 dollar from its matching option.

Two quibbles with this camera

Newsbob, Amazon
11 May 2011
  • Summary: I agree with everything people have written about the excellent video quality of this camera. But I've found two things I don't like: 1) There is no neck strap, nor any way to attach one. I am getting one of those tethers that fastens to the tripod adapter screw, but that's not a very elegant solution, and the camera will dangle upside down. I'm a guy who goes on vacation with a video camera and a DSLR. So I need a way to let go of the video camera while shooting stills.

IT'S A DECENT VIDEO CAMERA WITH 12MP STILLS.

R. Berry "night trader", Amazon
24 April 2011
  • Summary: It's a good video cam that takes high quality stills. Has built in GPS which seems unnecessary. Zoom function is only optical X10 which is lacking in many applications. It has no digital hybrid zoom. Remote control works poorly with extremely short range. It is easy to operate and does take a nice high def video and picks up audio very well. The stills are great quality for a vid cam but zoom function is even more limited. All in all---- i'd buy it again.

Sony Handycam HDR-XR550V Camcorder

ronivonraposo-2009, Ebay
10 April 2011
  • Summary: I bought this camcorder because I always wanted a small camera that is easy to use, and I really like this camcorder because it's easy to use, has a very good image and you can shake the hand, the image does not shake, not I have nothing to complain about the purchase that I made a very good camcorder.
