AG-DVC20

Thomas R., Newegg
25 February 2011
  • Summary: The 1/6" of inch CCDs are poor in size for the price. the 1/4" of the DVC 60 is a major improvement.
  • Pros: Price very good.
  • Cons: I have own this camera for a few years and found it to be just terrible in the focus department. The recorded footage has always had a soft look to it. I send it into the panasonic repair station in Kansas and it does look better. I just shot a live show and I could not get over how soft it still...

good stuff!!!! great deal!!

brian s., Newegg
21 March 2009
  • Summary: so far, the sound seems to be really good!!! i used it for a bit in the back yard, and every sound i heard outside was picked up flawlessly as i played it back on my pc, and all looked good and sounded great on my 32" hi def tv!!!
  • Pros: i was going for a pro-sumer cam for doing weddings and concerts. i did some good research, i found that this deal although not hi-def, to be one of the best!! this cam costs much more elsewhere, some places as much as $2000. the ability to manual focus, set white balance, and set recording level ...
  • Cons: no hi-def(which isnt a huge necessity, being that producing hi-def dvd's is still a very new process) view finder uncomfortable to work with, i will opt out and use the the included 2.5 inch monitor not many cons on this one, it is no better or worse than what it claims to be, which is what i needed

Excellent camera

D Govender, Amazon
5 March 2009
  • Summary: I have used this camera to capture fast action footage of my pets and of sports events. It works really well in low light and the clarity is amazing. I use the Panasonic tapes for fear of the other tapes jamming in the camera (I heard its bad for the camera from a camera doctor).

  • Summary: This camera with three ccd lack of brilliants color and the low ligth performance is too bad that i decided to sell it and buy and HV20 or HV30, controls are hard to use, the AG-DVC7 is a better model than this, panasonic went too backwards with this cameral, if u plan to buy a camera, get the sony...

The Panasonic AG-DVC20

Michael J. Berglin, Amazon
28 February 2009
  • Summary: This camcorder never ceases to amaze me. It is relatively easy to use right out of the box, and the menu system does take some time to get familiar with (which in and of itself is not a complaint). I don't need XLR input as I run everything through a small studio mixer straight into the 3.5mm input.

Ideal Prosumer Camera at this price range

JL, Amazon
23 February 2009
  • Summary: The Panasonic AG-DVC20 is probably the best (if not only) "Pro-sumer" MiniDV camera in its price range. The DVX100 (and now the HVX) is the staple of the low budget filmmaker. But if you want a professional look at a lower cost the AG-DVC20 is the way to go.

Size Does Matter

Deep in the Woods, Amazon
22 February 2009
  • Summary: I have owned my DVC20 for some 5 years now. It is a very good camera, not perfect, but very good. From the negative reviews I see here they must either have a problem with there unit, or they purchased without considering what this is good for. It is a semi-pro for a reason.

YOU WOULD BE SHOCKED HOW BAD THIS CAMERA IS FOR THE PRICE

Camera Man, Amazon
21 February 2009
  • Summary: I went out trying to search for a professional camera i could use to upgrade my films. This camera is expensive, but the least expensive as far as professional camera's go. After receiving this item, the first thing you will notice is it feels cheaply made. I mean it feels like a toy camera.
