Lousy Image and Sound Quality

Linda R., Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Panasonic should have never released this camera. Their affordable (sub $3,000) standard definition shoulder-mount offerings were excellent. This one? Not so much. There's a reason it was discontinued. Even outdoors on a sunny day the images from this 1 chip camera were awful.

A fine camera, with a few quibbles

Scott FS, Amazon
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I shot a music festival using this camcorder, and was impressed. It is well designed, and has a familiar layout to the older Panasonics that used the miniDV tape transport. The HMC70 uses high-speed SD cards, and gives a fairly good quality image, even in lower-light situations.

Great camera, but don't skimp on the accessories.

Antoinette L. Flannigan, Amazon
15 March 2010
  • Summary: This is an excellent camera for the money with acceptable quality in low-light conditions, but I would recommend purchasing a long-life battery, a solid microphone, and plenty of storage (two 32 GB SDHC cards or four 16 GB for standard def recording).

Good value

RH, Amazon
20 July 2009
  • Summary: This is the first "prosumer" HD camcorder I've used. For the money I can't see the need for anything else. The video is great (as long as you get the correct lighting kit) and adding external audio via a mic is a snap. Make sure you invest in a larger SD card.

Professional Image Quality in an Amateur Camera Body

Stephen Stough, Amazon
18 June 2009
  • Summary: As the retired chief technology officer for a Fortune 100 company that developed their own digital cine camera, my fundamental interest was in image quality. This 3-CCD, 1440 x 1080i anamorphic 16:9 format camera produces outstanding image quality -- closer to the theoretical limits of performance...

Excellent Video quality But Camera is Large

R. hall, Amazon
15 April 2009
  • Summary: OK, I am not a professional videographer, but I know what looks good on a nice television or screen. I tried the smaller HD camcorders (Canon HF 10, and Sony HDR-SR11), and they have excellent video quality if you do not move the camera.

Most Bang for your Buck: HD shoulder cam with xlr inputs

Jimmystl, Amazon
17 February 2009
  • Summary: Decided to look for an inexpensive shoulder mounted high definition camcorder: there are currently, as Feb. 2009 two models available. The Sony HVR-HD1000 and the Pansonic AG-HMC70 (HMC70P, HMC70PJ are NTSC models, PAL models use different numbers).
