Chart Edit

Has a Night Mode

The HP F-500G has a night mode, which is unusual. Most of the other video cameras of a similar age and spec to the F-500G do not have a night mode.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with a night mode and we think because of it's better review score, the Transcend DrivePro 200[plb_2962204_price], and the HP F-500[plb_2962207_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth also looking at other video cameras which also have a night mode including the Drift Innovation Drift Ghost-S Action[plb_2962227_price].

8 Reasons Against

Very Short Battery Life

The shortest battery life of video cameras of this age and spec is 0.083h, the longest is 5h, and the average battery life is 1.9h. At only 0.16666666666667 hours, the HP F-500G has a quite short battery life compared to most of the other video cameras that were launched around the same time as the F-500G.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 0.16666666666667h battery life video cameras currently available including the HP F-500[plb_2962207_price] which has better reviews.

If this HP camcorder battery life is too short for you then you might also want to look at the FDR-X1000[pl_2962225_price] (0.5h), or the HDR-AZ1[pl_2962228_price] (2h) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.
