Amazing camcorder !!!
5 Star Review   By BananaXface on Sony - Official Store - Feb 11, 2013   

This Camcorder is awesome! It is So high def. It is a little grainy in lowlight indoors , but you can fix that by turning down the manual exposure settings a little. But, either way outside or inside, the quality is superb! I like how it has 2 Bright lights on the camcorder, it's good for at night, or in the woods searching for the Blair witch LOL but really , it lights up a whole dark living room ! The include lens hood is a great installment. I like how it also has a sony interface shoe, to power accesories, like on camera lights or microphones. The only con is that, It doesn't have sony nightshot/night vision. And the lack of Real manual settings, such as on the sony pj 710v.

Crutchfield has collected 3 user reviews for this product with an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars. The most recent reviewer said, "Wow, Great camera! The stabilization is great. I took some videos while walking and circling the object and the video was smooth and clear. Easy to use touch screen and the built in camera is crystal clear. You cannot go wrong with this one. Great battery life also."

Very poor low light quality
1 Star Review   By dave74x on Sony - Official Store - Jun 7, 2012   

Sony decided to put a smaller sensor in this years CX580v compared to last years 1/2.88 in the CX560v. The quality is very poor. Filming indoors with regular lighting the picture quality gets very grainy, almost unusable. They also removed alot of manual controls such as, mode dial, shutter, iris, and AE shift. They took away night shot, moved the speakers to the front under the lens which picks up wind noise. This camcorder isn't worth $799.00.. I suggest you either go with the PJ710v, CX760v, PJ760v or get last years models CX560v/CX700v.. I am very disappointed in Sony this year..

Powerful camera in a small unit
4 Star Review   By ipadwalker on Sony - Official Store - May 30, 2012   

the Camera I have is the HDR-CX590, I just looked at the specs, seems to be the exact same camera. I like using this for random video, traveling and just goofing around. Its a great unit, but I wish there was a different view / screen option. when the sun is at your back, which you try for, the viewfinder is not that useful..... Other than that, this camera is awesome.
