  • Excerpt: First, the negatives. The first impression was the spring loaded clip that secures the eyepiece to the view screen disintegrating upon touching it. Ugh. Gravity now keeps the eyepiece in place. We'll find a way to juryrig a fix of some kind.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Zoom
  • Cons: Won't Accept 64gb Cards

  • Summary: We'll update this as we gain experience with the '80. First, the negatives. The first impression was the spring loaded clip that secures the eyepiece to the view screen disintegrating upon touching it. Ugh. Gravity now keeps the eyepiece in place. We'll find a way to juryrig a fix of some kind.

A lot of features packed into a reasonable priced unit.

James Willing, Amazon

  • Summary: The camera performs as expected based on the published specs, and in good lighting conditions the image quality is outstanding for the price. Good feature set with manual overrides for just about everything that an 'old school' camera jockey would want. A very good unit for the price point.

Outstanding Pro HD Camcorder

CinemaPete, Amazon
16 April 2014
  • Summary: This is actually my 2nd HMC80: Although the Panasonic HMC80 has been around for some time, and there are other models that have supplanted it since its introduction, it still remains one of the best Pro HD camcorders for the money. Image quality is extraordinarily good.

great camera

Mr. M. Ortiz, Amazon

  • Summary: when you hold the camera, you will say 'wow thats very lightweight' I thought I was heavier. It has XLR inputs which is a plus. WB is a bit slow to adjust sometimes. I recorded this video: [...] since my videographer complained that it was too big, I had to repleace it with another panasonic camera.
