    Very nice camera, but dodgy interoperability, February 24, 2013

    Two big issues here: the camera itself and the crazy world of video formats.

    The camera is a very nicely engineered piece of equipment. The user interface is handled mostly through
    the LCD touch screen which works quite well and has a good user design – no more complex than it needs
    to be. Produces excellent quality HD movies and photos (roughly 6K x 3K resolution). Even generates
    5.1 surround sound – very nice. Also can do short slow motion clips (about 3 seconds of real time
    played in about 12 seconds). So far, so good. The manual it ships with is only 70 pages or so and
    leaves out a lot of explanation – the online manual is 250 pages and much better.

    OTOH – for video, it generates only “.m2ts” files – apparently a Sony variation of the AVCHD
    standard cooked up by Sony and Panasonic. In my random testing, these files were correctly
    handled/played by:
    On a PC: Sony’s PlayMemories software and the freeware VLC player, but NOT by
    WindowsMP or Picasa

    On a TV (using a data DVD or flash drive):
    Sony BR player and late-model Samsung TV, but NOT by late-model Panasonic
    BR player or Panasonic TV.

    I do not have a true BR burner, so did not try that option.

    In short, there is a jungle of video formats out there. The Sony handycam generates
    ONLY .m2ts files – there is no guarantee or even high probability that any other chunk of
    AV equipment you may have will handle this format. Be warned ….

    [UPDATE]: turns out there are (at least) three flavors of disk that can be burned:
    1. plain old data disk (files and folders), 2. true blu-ray disk (burners
    not common yet on PCs), and 3. new-fangled AVCHD disks. You can generate the 3rd type
    using the PlayMemories software mentioned above – and FWIW, this AVCHD disk was
    accepted by my Panasonic BR player … so apparently, that’s the preferred
    mode. Questions: 1) how widely is the AVCHD disk format accepted,
    and 2) when your grandchildren find the disk in 2073, will they be able to
    decode it?

    Excellent video quality, April 17, 2013

    This review is from: Sony HDRCX580V High Definition Handycam 20.4 MP Camcorder with 12x Optical Zoom and 32 GB Embedded Memory (2012 Model) (Electronics)

    This camera has excellent video quality. Battery life is great also. Note, pretty much zero advanced settings are available. I expected some manual focus settings at this price, but this may be normal in this price range. I normally use a prosumer type $3k camera, but I am still impressed with the video quality of this camera.

    Only two minor negatives I can think of…
    A tripod mount blocks the card reader. You can use USB to copy from the card or internal memory, but it is really slow.

    It appears to use the same video format as their higher-end cameras. I’ve had zero issues editing the files using premiere pro.

    Great purchase!!!, March 21, 2013

    I ‘ve lost my camcorder after my wife gave birth to our third child. I was devastated by the loss of precious moments of our lives. I wanted to buy another camcorder, better than the one stolen in the hospital. This purchase achieved just that. I was expecting the price to be a little lower but I am still happy with the purchase. The item arrived on time and was brand new. It was a good experience, I will most likely buy from the seller again.
