            With my personal review with the HDV-301 Night Vision Camera and some of its basic features. Although not much, it’s technical specifications are still solid for its price tag. But if you have extra money to spend. Seree’s FHD HDV-501 (the HDV-301’s big brother) will be one of your options. Equipped with a 60 fps video recording and a built-in WiFi connectivity. Seree’s FHD HDV-501 Night Vision Camcorder might be something worth looking into. Here’s our quick review.

            Hardware Specification and Build Quality

            The HDV-501 Camcorder has a 20 megapixel CMOS sensor. It’s a big improvement from the 5 megapixel CMOS sensor that the HDV-301 camcorder has. It has the same lens aperture as the HDV 301. The major difference is the camcorder’s 60 frame per second video recording capability. The camcorder also supports a more enhanced auto-focus feature. Owners can use auto-focus on the go using the camcorder’s 3 inch LCD touch screen monitor. It also sports a rechargeable lithium battery. The battery is rated to last up to 5 hours of continuous video recording.

            It’s design is the same as the HDV-301 camcorder and the only main differences are its size. It is bigger and easier to hold than the smaller HDV-301. You can also notice that is has a more sophisticated design and a better feel. The round shape is a plus and the camcorder looks solid despite having a price tag below $200.

            Features and Shooting Specs

            The 20MP CMOS sensor can shoot full HD videos in the following formats. 1920 x 1080P/15FPS,1280 x 720/30FPS,640 x 480/30FPS and 720p 1280 x 720/60 fps. The biggest improvement is the 60 frame per second recording feature for the camcorder. The 20 MP resolution also means better image quality when taking still images.

            Considering the competition, this camera might even be better to other known brands. It can compete with Sony and Panasonic without having to sacrifice big bucks. The improved user interface is also a plus. The only drawback is, of course, the camera limitations when you are taking it outdoors.

             

            It’s not water resistant like brands from Sony and it also does not have a shockproof rating. Too bad because if this camcorder has the following features, it could have been a total package.

            Here are Some of its Other Features

            • Image Format: JPEG (24M, 20M, 16M, 12M, 8M, 5M, 3M, 1M)
            • Self-timer (2 second and 10-second intervals)
            • 16X digital zoom
            • Face Capture
            • White Balance Selection: Auto/Sunny/Cloudy/Tungsten/Fluorescent
            • SD/MMC Card slot (up to 32GB), it also supports SDHC class 10 cards (does not include a card in the kit)
