Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE: Kompakter Camcorder mit 160-GByte-Festplatte und GPS


Mit einer großen internen Festplatte, Weitwinkelobjektiv, hochwertiger Bildstabilisierung und eingebauten GPS-Sensor ist die von unseren britischen CNET-Kollegen getestete Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE vollgepackt mit moderner Technik. Mit 700 Euro ist das...

qualitativ hochwertige Videos und Fotos ; effektive Bildstabilisierung ; massenhaft interner Speicher ; gutes Weitwinkelobjektiv

schwer und ein bisschen schwierig zu halten ; teuer ; nicht jeder braucht integriertes GPS

Die Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE kann fraglos Videos exzellenter Qualität produzieren. Wer allerdings den erweiterten Speicherplatz und die GPS-Funktionalität nicht voll aus nutzt, wird sich am dann doch recht heftigen Preis stören.

Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE


Caméscope haut de gamme, le Handycam HDR-XR350VE présente les meilleures caractéristiques possibles. Mais il n'est pas réservé aux spécialiste et permet à tout un chacun de réaliser de jolie vidéos et de prendre de belles photos.

très bonne qualité des vidéos, qualité correcte des photos, efficacité du stabilisateur, capacité de stockage interne, capteur grand angle

lourd et un peu difficile à tenir, cher, puce GPS intégrée pas utile à tout le monde

Le Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE dispose de nombreux contrôles manuels faciles àutiliser grâce à des boutons tactiles. Mais l’écran de 2,7 pouces est un peupetit pour être très pratique. De toute façon, le mode automatique fait trèsbien son travail et...

Wish it had a shoe interface to mount extra lights or microphone device .. for the thing it does, something like that would be ideal. But I have no regrets, as it did me good. It keeps taking pictures at regular intervals with the face auto-smile...

I used it for recording 2 full-day seminars of 6 hrs. each day on HD .. & it worked without me having to back up on Day1 ;

No shoe interface for add'l mounting ;

Sony Handycam HDR-XR350VE


The image quality is very good.Handling is pretty intuitive.

Zoom function can be a bit difficult to control.It takes time to master to smoothen the zoom.As always you can never be satisfied with the battery life, as you are left are wanting more.PMB software needs improvement.

very easy to use, the weight o the camera, easy to download all images to the computer

not really a bad point but can be improved: a higher zoom rate because of the wide angle lens.
