Well, after waiting for price to fall for HDR-CX520, I finally snapped up the deal on Amazon the day it started selling it for $999.99. I just got it, have charged it and plan to test it out very soon.
Meanwhile, I am looking at what accessories to buy for this camcorder. If people could help out with suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. Note that I am cost conscious guy, so if you also know where to get good deal for accessory, please let me know. Also, I've reviewed accessories at SonyStyle for this camcorder (http://*******.com/lb6l2w
1. First and foremost, the case for camcorder. Which one do you recommend? It should be portable (not heavy) and with good cushion.
2. What about video flash and photo flash lights? Which one do you recommend?
3. Lastly, what is your experience with Wide Angle and Telephoto lens for this camcorder? I am really tempted to get these. Does anyone have any experience w/ them or worth buying at crazy price? I saw this YouTube video (http://*******.com/yj666j9
4. What about generic accessories? SONY rips off folks on these accessories too, IMHO. Does anyone have experience/suggestions for no name brand accessories such as batteries,etc? I am typically reluctant to buy these, but worth asking.

(note that CX500 & CX520 are pretty much same except memory size difference).
