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

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. The camera is also very old, my 200 dollar camera has more advance options then this.
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). Getting the video transfered to my computer is a breeze with the firewire cable I purchased separately.
Summary: Length:: 7:09 Mins My name is Sandor ....or DJ SANDOORS .This is a video of RC Formula 1 racing in Savannah, GA. I have other videos on You Tube, look for DJ Sandoors movies. I've had this camera for six months and bought on Amazon. For a lightweight camera of plastic material, it can be a good buddy for me. It's good for action footage and I could call this a semi-professional level. I'm an independent camera man with short films of nature, music, sports and portraits.
Summary: Okay, first and foremost, this seems to be the camera everyone forgot, including Panasonic. Go to their website and venture to the comparison page, and it's like no one bothered to fill out the spec sheet. For weight, dimensions and pick-up device it has "N/A." If you go online and search for reviews of this camera there is no shortage of criticism from the pro set, faulting it for not having this feature or that, but once you do the research the cameras that have those...
Summary: I use this camera for community tv production. I find it reliable and easy to use. It has good "low lux" sensing and performs excellent in studio and field shoots. I've acutally (I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS) dropped this camera from shoulder height, and it suffered no internal damage. It has a little bruise on the top of the case, but that's all the damage I can find. That incident was in August 2009, and the camera still works flawlessly.
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. Here's why it's still better than anything you can get at BestBuy or Wal-mart. These cameras were the workhorse of our College TV station. They were great for on location, news packages, interviews, sports etc.
