Summary: I am a video professional, and I do own a Pro-sumer model Panasonic that I am very happy with. Problem is the Panasonic cost me close to 2Gs so I wanted a second camera to take out on family informal events, that could also double as a second HD camera for my business.
Summary: Took beautiful videos for about 7 weeks. After two months, the unit wouldn't turn off. I had to remove the battery to turn it off. Eventually, the camera would turn itself off whenever the zoom or record button was touched.
