Be aware of defective video output

Miley, Amazon
17 August 2014
  • Summary: I received the camera and it appeared to work ok. Playback was clear on the LCD screen, however, when we finally played back the video on the TV, the images were very blurry, almost cartoon like. Since we only had the camera 6 months, I sent it back for a warranty repair. I was told it had a defective video output board, and would cost over $300 in labor to repair (labor warranty only 90 days). I said forget it as I can buy another new camera for less.

Big disappointment

Roger K, Amazon
11 June 2014
  • Summary: I can't believe how bad this is. The one I had from 2007 (not HD) was much better. The photos and videos are not very good and the color not very deep.

Camera is OK, Not Able to Transfer Video to PC

Mike PA, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: Camera function is OK, but if you would like to transfer the video to your PC you'll need to purchase software separately. The Users Manual references software included on a CD, however the box the camera is delivered in is physically to small to contain a CD. I'll update this review if I find a way to transfer video from this device, Panasonic customer service is currently closed.

not 1080p as advertised

Tom Wambaugh, Amazon
10 July 2013
  • Summary: The video quality of these camcorders (bought 2) was very disappointing. Tried shooting with a variety of cards in a variety of locations under a variety of conditions- bottom line- if your subject moves at all- pixel city! I have a model 2 years older that shoots 1080p and it puts this camera to shame! If you can afford to shoot a subject that won't move, you would be in good shape but otherwise, I cannot recommend this camera at any price.

Disappointed

Lemon, Amazon
18 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this from Amazon full of hope that a brand new onto the market camcorder from Panasonic would meet all my requirements. Initially, I was very pleased with the product. It is very light and easy to handle. The four way controls took only a few minutes to get used to and because it is not a top of the range product it only has basic functions for everyday simple use. Just what I wanted. The major issue I had was on playback.

User Review

  • Excerpt: Камера куплена случайно, продавец убеждал что будет снимать хорошо. Попользовался пару часов, сняв небольшие ролики понял что снимает она не лучше телефона. (опыт съёмки есть и на нормальных камерах). В плане качества корпуса всё нормально. Управление не впечатлило : кнопка записи очень тугая, кнопка зума наоборот, чуть дотронулся случайно, а она уже сработала. На улице много шумов на видео, в помещении вообще снимает ужасно.
  • Pros: цена
  • Cons: качество съёмки

Sehr kurze Lebensdauer.

Reinhard Klinksiek, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • Summary: Mein positiver erster Eindruck hat sich leider nicht bestätigt. Ich habe mir letztes Jahr die Panasonic HC-V100 zugelegt und war erstmal angenehm überrascht. Für ein Gerät in der Preisklasse waren die Bilder wirklich gestochen scharf und selbst der Kameraton, der ja häufig ein Schwachpunkt bei Camcordern ist, war brauchbar. Natürlich darf man da keine Wunder erwarten. Und wenn man halbwegs semiprofessionell was machen will, kommt man um ein Mikro ohnehin nicht herum.

nicht zu empfehlen

Michael Spielmann "MSP", Amazon
28 September 2013
  • Summary: Die Kamera ist soweit ganz in Ordnung. Aber der Ein/Ausschaltknopf sind eine Katastrophe. Man weis nie genau ob sie an oder aus ist. Der Knopf reagiert so langsam, dass man mit der Kamera schon lange nach unten geschwengt hat bevor das Piepsgeräusch zu hören ist. Da stimmt wohl etwas mit der Software nicht. Deshalb muss man immer die Kamera Aufnahme abschalten und die Kamera noch etwas auf das Objekt halten damit der nach unten schweng nicht auch aufgenommen ist.

Superhandlich, aber doch nur schwache Qualität

Dr.Watson, Amazon
21 December 2012
  • Summary: Ich habe diesen Camcorder mit dem Panasonic HC-V500EG und dem Sony HDR-CX250EW ausführlichst verglichen. Leider ist dieser kleine Camcorder von der Qualität doch eher schwach und kann mit den anderen beiden nicht mithalten. Die genaue Rezension und den Vergleich findet man bei der Sony.
