We compared all the other camcorders with a night mode to this camcorder and we think because of it's better review score, the Transcend DrivePro 200 ($99.95), and the HP F-500 is also worth considering.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a night mode to this video camera and we think the Drift Innovation Drift Ghost-S Action ($273.95) is also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

Very Short Battery Life

Across all the camcorders that have been available for a similar time to the F-500G the battery lifes range from 0.083h to 5h, and the average battery life is 1.9h. With a battery life of only 0.16666666666667 hours, the HP F-500G has a quite short battery life compared to most of the other video cameras of this age and type.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 0.16666666666667h battery life video cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the HP F-500.

If you are looking for a longer battery life then you might want to look at the FDR-X1000 ($79.95) (0.5h), or the HDR-AZ1 ($129.95) (2h) both from Sony which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The HP F-500G does not have an image stabiliser, although keep in mind that most of the other camcorders of a comparable age and spec to the F-500G also do not have an image stabiliser.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Interchangeable Lens

Most comparable spec video cameras that came out more than two years ago do not have an interchangeable lens. The HP F-500G is no exception to this as it too does not have an interchangeable lens.

Chart Edit

Very Low Maximum Aperture Value

At only 1.9, the HP F-500G has a quite low maximum aperture value compared to most of the other video cameras of this age and type. The maximum aperture values of camcorders that were released more than two years ago range from 1.8 to 22.

Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other camcorders that came out more than two years ago, the HP F-500G is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

The HP F-500G does not have a built-in projector, although this is within the context that most of the other camcorders that came out around the same time as the F-500G also do not have a built-in projector.

We compared all the other video cameras which also have a built-in projector to this video camera and we think the Sony HDR-PJ420 is also worth considering.

Not 3D Compatible

The HP F-500G is not 3D compatible, although it is worth noting that most of the other camcorders that have been on the market for around the same time as the F-500G are also not 3D compatible.

If you would prefer a camcorder that is 3D compatible then you might also want to consider the Sony HDR-TD20VE which is also higher rated.
