The XR500V is a brand new model and is much better than the SR12. But the XR500V for retail is $1300. But considering the SR12 is worth less, it was a steal for you.
(HDR-SR12 vs HDR-XR500V which is better) Help my camera broke, I needed one in a hurry.
I drove up to NY from SC and discovered camera problems with my old one. I needed one in a hurry so I probably Paid too much $1399.99 for a Sony HDR-SR12, but the box was delivered and I found a HDR-XR500V inside. I know this is the updated newer model, but is this equal to or better than the SR-12? Also if it is an acceptable substitute is the price OK, should I ask for a price adjustment, or is the XR500V worth more? If I got a bad deal on the switch I need to find something fast that can be delivered to NY by April 10. Any suggestions you be appreciated.
PS I am leaving for an emergency dentist appointment, I?ll check for replies when I get back
