7 Reasons For

Full HD

Full HD

Unlike most of the other video cameras that have been around for around the same time as the F-500G which are not Full HD, the HP F-500G is Full HD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other Full HD video cameras currently available including the Sony HDR-CX730E which has better reviews.

Has an HDMI

has an HDMI

Unlike most of the other camcorders that were launched more than two years ago which do not have an HDMI, the HP F-500G has an HDMI.

It may also be worth considering one of the other video cameras with an HDMI currently available including the Sony HDR-CX730E which has better reviews.

Has a Night Mode

The HP F-500G has a night mode. Most of the other video cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the F-500G do not have a night mode.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with a night mode and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony HDR-CX730E, the HP F-500 (£76.20), and the Transcend DrivePro 200 (£64.95) is also worth considering.

Lithium Battery Technology

This camcorder has a Lithium-Ion battery technology, which is typical of many video cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Has a Built-In Display

The HP F-500G has a built-in display. Most of the other camcorders of this type and age also have a built-in display.

We compared all the other video cameras with a built-in display to this video camera and we think because of it's better review score, the Sony HDR-CX730E is also worth considering.

CMOS Sensor Type

This camcorder has a cmos sensor type, which is typical of many camcorders that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Has One White Balance

The number of white balance modes found on the HP F-500G is more than most video cameras of a comparable age and type to it. This video camera has an Auto white balance, which is the most frequently found white balance found on video cameras of this type and age.

9 Reasons Against

Very Short Battery Life (max)

The HP F-500G has a fairly short battery life (max) (only 0.16666666666667 hours) compared to most of the other video cameras of this age and type. The shortest battery life (max) of camcorders that were released more than two years ago is 0.083h and the longest is 5h.

Other 0.16666666666667h battery life camcorders currently available which you might want to consider include the HP F-500 (£76.20) which has better reviews.

If this video camera battery life (max) is too short for you then you might want to consider the FDR-X1000 (£255.49) (0.5h), or the HDR-AZ1 (£259.99) (2h) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

Most video cameras of a comparable spec and age to the F-500G do not have an image stabilizer. The HP F-500G is no exception to this as it too does not have an image stabilizer.

We compared this camcorder to all the other video cameras with an image stabilizer and we think the Sony HDR-CX730E which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

The HP F-500G does not have an interchangeable lens, although this is within the context that most of the other camcorders that were launched more than two years ago also do not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Aperture Number

At only 1.9, the HP F-500G has a quite low maximum aperture number compared to most of the other similar spec camcorders that were released more than two years ago. The lowest maximum aperture number of camcorders that were released more than two years ago is 1.8, the highest is 22, and the average maximum aperture number is 5.2.

Chart Edit

Only 2304 X 1536 Still Image Resolution(s)

The HP F-500G supports a maximum still image resolution of 2304 x 1536. That's over three times the still image resolution of the most common still image resolution(s) of 1280 x 720. The worst still image resolution of all similar spec video cameras that have been around for more than two years is 640 x 360 and the best is 6016 x 4016.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other camcorders that are a comparable age to the F-500G, the HP F-500G is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The HP F-500G is not 3D. Most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for more than two years are also not 3D.

Camcorders which are 3D that might be worth considering include the Sony HDR-TD20VE which is also higher rated.

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Like most of the other video cameras of this age and spec, the HP F-500G does not have a built-in projector.

We think you might also be interested in alternative video cameras which also have a built-in projector including the HDR-PJ420E (£499.99), or the HDR-PJ820 (£659.99) both from Sony.

It was over three years ago when HP released the F-500G.

Average Weight

At 460 grams, the HP F-500G has a fairly average weight compared to most of the other camcorders that were released around the same time as the F-500G.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 460g weight video cameras currently available including the Sony HDR-TD20VE which has better reviews.

Alternative camcorders with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Sony HDR-PJ820 (£659.99) (460g).
