Camera performs well for the HD movie part, beautifull colors, vidid, well balanced, good quality movies. Problems: - Batery life is simple 'bad'. - Imagine quality in the still mode is less then acceptable. If you want a nice little pocket camera for your HD movies, it's a good buy, don't get it for the DSC part.

To whom it may concern. T-500 is a good looking and a good featured camera, BUT: You must have minimum 2 (or 3) battery packs and take under consideration that there is no BIONZ processor, which means that the still picture quality is not the best of Sony as far as it concerns the dot-pixel effect in low light conditions. On the other hand there is a good value for money and it is one of the best cameras for everyday and family use.

Overall I love the camera. The image quality of the HD recording is superb for the money. I recorded my son playing the guitar, shrink the video size from 200+MB down to only 20MB at a bit rate of 1Mb/sec and still managed to get very decent quality. search optichero in youtube look for Candombe En Mi. Problems: I would say battery is a bit of a let down...

Great camera, easy to carry around so you can never miss a good shot... or HD video! Works great with Bravia Sync on Sony TV's, and looks stunning by hooking it up via the HDMI cradle. My main reason for purchasing this little gem. Problems: Make sure you use it with a fast Memory Stick of at least 15mbps otherwise HD video won't be able to record. Beware short battery life due to big LCD. Too bad the cradle cannot be used to charge the battery like old digital cameras used to.

Overall this is a good camera and well worth the money. I can think of a few minor detractors from an otherwise worthy product: -the connection to the computer requires the docking station or reading the card in a separate reader, since the camera itself lacks a USB port. This means packing the station or a card reader for travel. -the battery cover door could have a nicer execution for the lock. -there is really very little you can do to customize or manually alter the picture taking ...

I'll admit I bought this camera for the HD video feature only. I wanted an ultra compact that had this capability. The video quality is surprising considering the tiny lens. The feature set is impressive. You can adjust the EV, focus distance, color mode, etc. even in video. There is one problem with this feature set though. Some of the features don't stay in memory meaning that if you power off the camera, the custom settings which you have chosen will be lost. You have to set them again ...

This is a fun camera! I haven't had the T500 very long, but I had a T200 before so I'm familiar with the platform. The good: * Its a sony (and fairly heavy for its size) * 10 MPixels * 33 mm wide angle with 5X optical zoom * large 3.5" 230,000 pixel touchscreen (Nice!) * Stereo microphones * HD video recording * Close-focus macro is awesome (1 cm) * Some manual controls available * Dedicated lever to switch between photo & video modes * USB transfer to computer is fast via docking station * ...
