Summary: This is our second camera that we parched this month, We have used canon camcorders for almost 20 years and come to realize that Panasonic is making a name for them self's real fast with their good quality camera's and good customer service. But most of all they make a good camera at a good price.
Summary: I've had it for a while and it works better than I had expected. It is loaded with good features, light weight, not too big and the manual controls are all in a good location. Some complained about the iris/focus/zoom rings being a sticky or stiff but I did not find that so.
Excerpt: I have used this camcorder for about a year with great success professionally. We mainly shoot aviation action dvds. I use 1080 60P in case we need to edit up some smooth slow motion. I have shot in low light, bright light and with the sun at me.
Pros: 60p Capability, Great Audio With Xlr, price, SD cards
