Great Cam Poor Software
on 13 June 2009
Not sure what the previous buyer was on about,I tend to not agree on a few points.
The editing software is not up to the job at all, but that is no problem there is lots of software on the market that can edit AVCHD.
I am just back from 3 weeks in Florida and used the HandyCam every day,and found the feature that takes pics when you smile a bonus and very good quality.
The HandyCam is a joy to carry,and on full HD will give you about 30 Hours of recording time,and high 70 mins battery life with the supplied NPFH 60 battery.
I was looking at buying the 520VE but to be honest for an extra £300 i think it isn't worth it.
The sound is superb with Dolby 5.1 as standard
Anyhow i think the best thing is to view the videos i shot on Youtube that may help you decide, type in mrj2k8 that is my username and check out the tests i have of the camcorder in action
