Summary: The Panasonic AC-130 was a great Investment for our video production business. We were very skeptical before purchasing this camera because we were so used to the quality coming out of our Nikon SLR systems.
Excerpt: This is my first review here. I am not a high end professional yet wanted something better than the average fare you see in the stores. It is confusing. It seems all the manufactures have something close in features and price. But what to get?
Pros: Affordable, Easy to Use, Great Audio, Great Zoom, Media storage, Studio Work
Excerpt: We use three of these cameras with Revo 1000 shoulder mounts to film sporting events, and they are fantastic. Their auto settings are reliable, the transfer is extremely quick, and the lens and image are wide and high quality.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: I use this for legal video (#CLVS) mostly. It is great for live events, and Indie Filmmaking too. Lots of bells and whistles and of course the book doesn't come with. Just the general book does though. You can find the more informative user manual online though.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Has Timedate Stamp, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
Excerpt: This camera is excellent in low light. The setting for outside are the best with the filters. I shoot in Arizona where the light is very bright and the filters are an excellent way to go with this type of weather conditions. I don't like the way the LCD screen opens.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound, Great Zoom
Excerpt: Just got this camera and so far so good. Even though it is unusual to freehand this camera, because of its size, it is balanced and designed well. The only complaint I have, and its because I missed it, you can only transfer SD video through the cables.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Sound, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Zoom range/performance
