Owner For a Year

Dan, Amazon

  • Summary: Great poetability, great outdoor Pics awsome video as well. However don't buy the camera for photography. It's more of a all around camera with the video going on. I can't get a decent looking picture in low light unless the camera is stbelized (can you imagine a pocket cam on a tripod lol) anyway you can place it on top of something though. Indoors the pictures are nice if upclose with the flash. In both cases however I find noise.

Novelist beware

J. Hartley, Amazon
7 January 2009
  • Summary: When I purchased this camera it advertised GPS location on pictures. Being new to photography I read it as it was included in the camera....NOT. It is a separate device that you must carry and then it matches the time of the picture with the time on the GPS tracking devise and then pinpoints it on a map. Since then this has been removed from the description. THE GPS WAS MY MAIN REASON FOR BUYING THIS CAMERA, it was just plain misleading.

Nice video quality, cheesy touchscreen, awful battery

Jeff S., Amazon

  • Summary: The video and audio quality are the best of any of the 3-4 point and shoots that can do 720p video, but you'll burn through the battery in 45 minutes of casual use. Touchscreen is a bit cheesy to me, but i prefer a button i can feel. I expect iPhone quality touchscreen resolution and responsiveness these days, and the screen on this cam feels 2 years old.

Good Video - Decent Camera - Minor Flaws

W. Jamison, Amazon
7 December 2008
  • Summary: I was looking to replace my 5 year old digital camera (Minolta Dimage G400 - 4 mpxl) and 2 year old mini DV camcorder with one camera that can take both pics and decent video. I've been very pleased with the video that the T500 takes. I find myself capturing many of the funny thing my 2 yr old does that I would have otherwise missed because I wasn't lugging around my camcorder. In that regard, I am very happy with my purchase.

Video is nice but still images can't compare to Canon

Ashton, Amazon
4 December 2008
  • Summary: Hello, I have owned the Sony T100 and T300 (10.1MP) and was never happy with the image quality of either. I purchased and then gave this T500 away, because I was not happy with the larger size and the image quality of both indoor and outdoor images. Images which seem to be, less impressive than the 8MP T100 I had. I use Sony Vaio notebooks and love most Sony products, but Sony digital cameras, just don't perform well, compared to Canon.

Good features, poor battery

E. King, Amazon
23 November 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this camera primarily for its ability to record 720 video in a small form factor. I've never owned a digital camera, but thought that it was finally time to stop relying on my girlfriend to take photos. Living in San Francisco, having quick access to a camera is vital and a small slim factor is key. I bought this camera mindful of the caveat that its battery life is terrible, so I ordered an extra battery.

initial out of the box thoughts

  • Summary: T500. Just opened and charged it. Just one test pic. Disappointed that there's no smile shutter or good in camera retouching features like the t77 or my h50. not a bog deal but that smile shutter is fun. also a little bigger than I hoped and the docking station's a bit of a pain but guess it's needed bc of the hdmi connection. will test it for a few days and see how it goes before final decision. QUICK UPDATE took it with me on dog walk so far impressions good.
