Sony HDR-CX520 HD camcorder

 

A Full HD flash memory camcorder with a three-way optical image stabiliser

Improved image stabilisation, 12-megapixel still image mode, impressive range of features

HDR-CX500V offers better value for money

The Sony HDR-CX520 is a feature-packed camcorder that performs impressively across the board. However, if you're not a frequent shooter, you may want to consider the cheaper Sony HDR-CX500V -- it offers all of the same functionality, but with less memory.
