Summary: I think Panasonic has really been unable to live up to their own hype and overzealous misleading advertising with this camera. I purchased this product to replace my DVX100 camera. It's hard to comprehend that this is far as Panasonic has evolved the product line in six years. The camera is a big plastic toy-like prosumer camera.
Pros: Great Picture Quality, Simple Controls
Cons: Flimsy Construction, Lens must be fixed, Lens wobble critical flaw, Non-locking lens hood, Not NTSC-PAL switchable, Overpriced, P2 media overpriced, Plastic body, Poor Sound
