I've had this camera for over a year and I love it
23 March 2010
Summary: I am not a professional photographer, but I've taken lots of photos with several digital cameras over the years. I love this one because it's quite versatile. The quality of the pictures is pretty good and you can shoot video clips in HD.
Summary: This camera is amazing. I am finding new things it can do everyday. I take it everywhere I go.It is small and compact yet gives all the features of a large camera. I would recommend to anyone that loves taking pictures.

Summary: I wanted a small camera to augment my Canon SLR digital Rebel. I find I am no longer using the Rebel that much. I also wanted a small camera that would do video. The T500 had HD pictures and video. They look great on my HD TV and on the PC.
Summary: Living in LA is great because you never know what or who you're going to see. Now I have the ability to record HD video with something that I can keep in my pocket. They moved the mic to the front of the camera (instead of the top which past models had, and your finger always found a way to cover...
Summary: LIKES: For the size, this is an excellent camera. Still pics are beautiful and camera adapts quickly to various lighting in Auto mode. Pics are crisp and colors are vivid. Quick startup and easy to use, straight out of the box without much setup.
Summary: In a nutshell, I use this camera as a replacement for my Panasonic HDC-SD5 palmcorder. The DCS-T500 has very nice picture quality and a bright flash. Nearly as good as the 12MP Kodack v1253. The HD video is very good. Better than v1253 in every way and the SD5 in low light conditions.
