Great feature-packed camera for an incredible price
7 February 2014
Summary: Purchased this camera as a nice shoulder-mount style for home movies. Compared to the price of anything similar (Canon XL-1, etc) this is an excellent product. Controls very similar to Panasonic DVX100- very pro feel about everything. XLR mic inputs are great feature. two hotshoe mounts, instead of the usual 1 found on most camcorders in this price range.
Summary: The AG-DVC60 is a pro camera, I can make adjustments on the fly in the middle of a shoot. If you are a filmmaker on a budget and you have access to a computer with fire wire this is a great deal.This camera may not be suitable for the person lacking knowledge with pro-cameras. It requires some knowledge of white balance, Zebra, Gain, OIS, etc.
Summary: Camera came but it was thrown in the box without support, it came dirty and didnt have nothing with it but one battery as it didnt come with all the stuff they said came with it and now I have to spend more money getting the stuff they didnt ship with this. Who ever sold and shipped this did a bad job ....
Summary: Good camera. Batterey life really depends on what size battery you have in it. Camera takes very good recordings. Also has a ability to be fully auto or fully manual, this allows a lot of control over what you are doing and how you want to record things
Summary: Great Video and sound. One of the best camera for under $4,000 Had Dvx100a, this blows it way with color.You shoot like a professional, so you want to look like a professional. The AG-DVC60 delivers. Its wide-angle, 16X optical lens allows dramatic zoom effects. Its top-quality audio capabilities include XLR mic/line inputs and two manual level controls.
Summary: panasonic ag-dvc60 bought it recently. like the picture quality, but the sound pick/up has a lot to be desired. the on/board mic picks up much to much background noise. so i designed a funnel shape cover that fits over the mic (out of a heavy duty plastic drinking glass) it surrounds the side noise and concentrates on the frontal sound. it works perfect, but panasonic should have known this in it's testing.
Summary: This is NOT a review for this seemingly excellent camera YET.. I hope Amazon doesn't mind and actually should appreciate the following: I've been in the market for this Camcorder for over a month now and haven't quite decided between the DVC30 or DVC60 - also have been looking at the Canon GL2, but all the reviews warning about the cassette problems keep me away from it.. Both (Panasonics) have almost the same features except for size of the Camera and LCD screen.
Summary: I bought one of these in Oct. of 2005 and have shot various events thus far. If you are looking for a good camera and don't want to spend $5000 or more then consider the AG-DVC60. It's solidly built and has a wealth of features. The XLR jacks let you use a vast array of pro audio gear and the full size form factor allows for steady shots and screams professionalism. Everyone is impressed when I show up with it.
