Reviews

HC-V500K is rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor sound, no microphone input Picture quality is ok. Sound is terrible. I would be ok with that if I could plug in a professional microphone but it has no plug for external microphone?!?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can't figure out how to work it I bought this product at Costco. The manual is for the HC-V500 and the HC-V500M. Except for turning the thing on, recording and entering the date and time (which I didn't want to do but the camera kept demanding it) the manual has been hopeless. The prompts on the touch screen do not match the prompts pictured in the manual. I cannot even get started with the thing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from new cxamera I was looking for a good camcorder that was cheap, and I found this. It is a good camera, low light camera, and good for someone who wants to make a movie. The price is a good price.
